      Comments:

      I like the cycle ops, but it should be easier to interface with smart TVs...without having to use appleTV, etc...also, the software app Zwift does not have diversity options to tailer profiles accordingly...as I am an African American and there were no profiles that were remotely similar to mine.

          My Magnus works great with Zwift... once I figured out how to get it calibrated. Save yourself some headaches and time and download Rouvy mobile to update and calibrate your trainer.

              Remarkably easy to use and very straightforward to set up. I use my iPhone and screen mirror to the AppleTV with Zwift software and am very pleased so far. Definitely get a good workout and can focus on maintaining power without being focused on speed. I expect this will lead to much more consistency on rides.

                  Super solid trainer, I enjoy the workouts and courses available through rouvy. Rock solid base, easy to setup. Resistance changes are smooth but lags a couple seconds behind the interval workouts or the video routes that I have ridden. Like other cyclops products I have had, this one simply works great!

                  Not unless I can pare with Zwift

                  I saw Cycleops Magnus running Zwift in the Performance showroom and ordered it. Setting up the Cycleops and pairing with Rouvy via my Droid tablet was easy. But I disappointingly have not been able with Zwift. Zwift tech info says use a tablet with iOS9 or better, so I contacted local computer shop to get a reasonably priced ipad. They said Droid with ANT would work better. Local Performance store says pair with Cycleops App. Went to Cycleops site. Looks like Rouvy is what you say to pair with. Setting up the Magnus with Zwift does not yet appear not fun or easy. Somebody please tell me what i need to do .
