  1. I'm so tempted to pull the trigger on a TV upgrade from 55 to 75inch. I just can't see the Tour lasting three weeks.... and I bet i'll end up kicking myself for shelling the cash to watch Twin Peaks re-runs or whatever they'll show in place of the Tour/Classics.
  2. Speaking from the two wheeled side of things - The cycling industry seems to be BOOMING at the grassroots level... while at the competition level it's effectively non-existent. You'd be hard done by having a race performance clause biting you on the arse in 2020 when there's no real opportunity to perform... However... company/brand/product/marketing wise there's a metric shitton to be gained if the athletes work on that side of things. At the end of the day, any prick can win a race. It's the nice guys/gals coming 5th that I'd follow. And almost every brand I speak to at the moment are quietl
  3. I'm half-arsed looking for a PowerTap wheel (again....). The last thing I need is another damn power meter.... but I need another point of power measurement out on the road for what I'm up to. Ideally it'll be accurate.... for what I need it really only needs to be consistent. If anyone has one laying around let me know. G2 fine. G3 even better. Thanks! Lama
  4. Earnings on YouTube are very... individual... I guess you'd call it. It depends what content you're putting out and at what time of year. And the current trends for advertisers. November and December are great months. January is a waste of time uploading anything. COVID saw a massive downturn in advertiser revenue on the platform, so while I had a huge upswing in views/subs - I was fisted five ways in regards to the earnings from that content. It'd be difficult estimate what DR would earn monthly on YouTube. It all comes down to who's bidding for his keywords/content. I'd guess he'd be a
  5. You're not going to be able to run both on the one AppleTV at the same time. It doesn't multitask. You could run FulGaz on the AppleTV (Bluetooth) and run Zwift on the laptop (ANT+) but only pairing the Power Meter and Cadence. Don't pair the "Controllable" over ANT+ on Zwift.
  6. 2014 Kickr Gen I top cap? Like this? Happy to stick this in the post. No guarantees it'll work but I don't need it.
  7. Their update yesterday screwed more things than Tiger Woods in his prime. I think the Mac/PC versions are fixed. Looks like a long weekend for them trying to sort out the Apple stuff.
  8. Zwift have pushed an update yesterday.... and x2 scramble-to-fix-things updates today. Whatever they did broke a lot of shit. Remembering they said they'd not roll out changes in peak periods... 🤔 The Apple ecosystem slows things down a LOT. They need an army of testers to make sure this doesn't happen. Again.....
  9. Sensors/etc shouldn't ever interfere ANT+ and BLE is designed to have LOTS of them in the same environment.... but anything can happen with dodgy hardware/etc.
  10. - Disconnect EVERYTHING. - Power on the SNAP. - Pair to it with the Wahoo Fitness mobile app. - Check firmware version. Update if required. - Don't use a Kickr/SNAP in direct sunlight. The optical sensors don't like that. - If you can find the optical sensor (between the flywheel and plastic cover, iirc on the SNAP.), clean it. An ear cleaner might work. Maybe compressed air. - Try a spindown again with the Wahoo Fitness app.. with nothing else paired to it. No Zwift/TrainerRoad/anything open anywhere.
  11. You can tinker with wheelbase settings to give it more of a kick beyond/below the gradient sent to the trainer.
  12. Oh, bugger. Not sure. Maybe eBay? An alternate would be the 4iiii HR strap which does the same thing.
