This is a side story to how how I'm planning next year, which I will post about elsewhere. Long story short, I have my 'do it all' bike in Somerset for winter gruelling rides ( as the mags would say). At home in Winchester, my basic plan is to keep the Bianchi and P3 only. This means more of an indoor campaign in winter, both to avoid endless bike cleaning and a desire to be home more and hit some numbers in a structured way.
So, after watching a couple of Shane Miller's excellent vids and chatting with a local TT stud who has one, I'm pretty set on getting an Elite Direto trainer. Bearing in mind I ride with zero gadgets ( and I mean zero), what do I need to get funky withZwift, TR and the like, and most importantly, how can I make everything private and avoid all the social media BS that might come with a subscription ( to anything) ?
Here's what I have at home right now:
A dumb tv with a spare HDMI if I unplug the Firestick.
An Amazon Firestick.
2014 iPad mini( 32gb)
2012 MacBook Pro running Sierra, 4gb ram.
Dell laptop with Windows 10 which I'd prefer to leave alone if possible.
a very dumb smart phone but about to get a smick new one with new job ( don't know which one yet)
5 Sufferfest films bought outright.
I have no desire to to get a Garmin type device at this stage and was hoping to capture data on one of the above devices, is that possible?
hmm, that wasn't short at all
