      After a couple close calls with cars out on the road, I’ve grown wary of outdoor riding (unless on super safe routes). But I would also get so bored on indoor rides. It was a perfect storm that stopped me from biking for the last couple years. This trainer, when paired with Zwift, has really changed everything for me. I look forward to rides now!

      I’ve had this Felt B16 frame since 2010 and have been flirting with selling it for months. But I probably couldn’t even get 500 for the frame these days, so I decided to just permantely leave it on the trainer. Very happy I kept it now that I have the Tacx.

      The only thing I’m missing is a Bluetooth compatible heart rate monitor. Any recommendations?

      That is a sweet Zwift setup!

      Really digging the oversized and rugget sweat mat you got there. It probably helps with vibration reduction and not having to worry about sweat flying all over the floor.

      I've been Zwifting for over 2 years and it has transformed my training and performance. I'm now a huge fan of indoor training and have met many great friends on Zwift like @cvdavis and others. It is also a great way to stay motivated in winter months when there isn't much riding to be done outside. On Zwift there are always people riding any hour of the day.

      As far as I know there aren't that many options for Bluetooth Heart Rate monitors out there. I've heard good things about Wahoo TICKR X which is a Dual Band Bluetooth 4.0 and ANT+ heart rate monitor, but haven't personally tried it. I believe that @Chris has one and can share his experience with it.

      I've used Wahoo heart rate monitors since they first came out and have been very happy with them. I also own a Tacx Neo and love it. I recommend greasing the inner sleeve every 150 hours or so. Great setup you have there - see you on the Zwift highway!
