Thanks guys...slowly getting there. I need to re index the gears. If I change them to match the cassette on the kickr will I need to reset again when I reattach the back wheel and take the bike out on the road?


More than likely, yes, you will need to re index, but, why do are you indexing them to be compatible with the Kickr cassette? If you use it in ERG mode, you dont need to switch through your gears, the kickr will adjust the resistance to the same level of power you have requested it to maintain, regardless of which gear you're in. just leave the setup in one gear at let the kickr do the rest

Exactly. When my indexing is out, there are normally still a couple of gears which work smoothly regardless ... mainly at the extremity of the range as the limit screws are the determining factor.

That said, re-indexing isnt a big deal once you get to grips with the simple concept of the barrel adjuster. I have to do it all the time between my disc and my other rear wheels.

I tink ERG mode would better be desribed as 'fully automated mode.' Do you know if you have set your trainer to this or are you unsure? From what i remember you can download the wahoo app on your phone/ipad and connect to the trainer via bluetooth. It'll allow you to choose settings via the app

Think of it like this. If you picked your hardest gear to climb a hill your legs would be going round really slowly and putting out a certain amount of power for a given speed and if you picked a really easy spinny type gear your legs would be going round really fast but your speed would be the same and your power would also be the same.

ERG mode changes the resistance itself to make you put out a set amount of power regardless of how slow or fast your legs are going.


So if you do a set workout on say Swift or Trainer road where you had put out a certain power for a set amount of time the trainer will keep adjusting the resistance to force you to put out the same power regardless of leg speed.

If you are just riding on the trainer using an app or some other form of control think of it as the resistance switch you had on your old turbo. The higher the number the harder it is to pedal.

Another update!!!....9 speed cassette put on the kickr so that I can free up my BMC for road use and use an old Dolce. Thumbs up to my LBS who are amazing guys who have checked it over and no clicking sound to be heard.
