  1. Ian says you need a Bluetooth or Ant+ speed sensor, and a classic trainer. We have got a Bryton Ant+ Speed (and Cadence) sensor, and a Blue Twist T2675 trainer. Follow his steps, Search and set tyre size to 700 x 23c… but get NO further. "Pings" away on Bluetooth symbol…. but can't do anything. Ian mentions NOTHING about an Ant+ stick (Dongle) in this Zwift official instruction video… but I'm pretty sure we DO actually need one, right?!
