    Hi, I’m getting a Kickr Core and wanted your take on a app. I’m not into racing and not going to be doing any triathlons anymore. Only want to ride for the health benefit. I want to ride hills and different places. It seems that Swift maybe geared more for racing and you pro guys. I saw that Rouvy had routes in California and Europe. Fullgas looks good too. Ill look over your page on Smartbike trainers. Thanks for your work and help.

    In the video you say thet Kinomap is 229 per month. It is a ONE TIME payment for lifetime.

  3. Cassie Farmer on February 7, 2022 at 10:06 pm

    Do you guys know of anything similar to this for a stationary cycle bike vs a bike trainer ? Like for a peloton type bike

  4. Monika Kraus on February 7, 2022 at 10:07 pm

    I am new to this. How can I know which bike I need to purchase to use with these apps? I am mostly interested in the BingRingVr or Kinomap. What is the difference of using these apps to the Peloton bike?

  5. Pammy P on February 7, 2022 at 10:08 pm

    Are there any apps which 2 people both on their own bike can race each other on please?

  6. H Mar on February 7, 2022 at 10:10 pm

    Really enjoying the videos. I am waiting on my first ever smart trainer, a Tacx Smart Flow. I have a MacBook Pro, old iPad, and an Android phone. The question is, will I need to purchase an Ant+ dongle to be able to use these apps, including Zwift? Or does the app use Bluetooth to connect to the trainer, while the trainer uses Ant+ to interface with my devices (Wahoo Elemnt and heart rate monitor)?

    I would prefer downloadable routes so you don’t have to be online burning bandwidth riding the same routes.

  8. Esteban K on February 7, 2022 at 10:14 pm

    thank you for the video

  9. Ajkajo on February 7, 2022 at 10:15 pm

    Can I ask. I have home stationary bike. There is app in android BitGym which can simulate the speed of country video movement based on the camera detection of head move. No crazy hardware needed and looks well. Is there something similar on PC version to use webcam please? Are there any existing sensors solutions I can put on pedals of stationary bike to control speed of video stream where there are country cycles movies for free? Pls advice if there is some not profesional, but easy solution for this. Best I want it just for my kids to use stationary bike and watching free video on youtube, just with some simple sensor webam or pedals….to control video speed moving. Thx in advance

    Great content. Will the apps you featured work with any exercise bike. Keep up the great work. Subscribed.

  11. Adventure Adventure on February 7, 2022 at 10:16 pm

    Rouvy, and it’s a shame you only focused on AR. Rouvy has so much more to offer and AR is only a tiny part of their incredible. platform.

  12. Mike beattie on February 7, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    Not keen on FulGaz or BKOOL I can’t pause and restart a ride in either , a must for me . Really like kinomap but can’t get it on my tv anymore lightning cables don’t work just show a QR code

  13. The Insider on February 7, 2022 at 10:19 pm

    Thanks so much for this video. I just got an exercise bike with BT resistance support for Kinomap and have been going through all these options to test how they compare. Sadly, only Kinomap can actually change the resistance of my DKN 2400i EMS bike. The others can mostly connect to the bike but only read the watt/RPM output. Any idea if the thing which makes it work with Kinomap is a known protocol, and if that protocol applies to other training software? I can’t imagine it’s bespoke to Kinomap, but I could be wrong. Seems weird that the bike can be adjusted via one software but nothing else. As much as I like FulGaz (when it’s not crashing), it provides me with virtually zero resistance, which never changes no matter the terrain.

    cool video!!
    I’ve been using the jacfit virtual cycling app, sensor and it’s really helped me to bike more

  15. Joes Guitar Shop on February 7, 2022 at 10:20 pm

    Great video !
    Does BKool work with AppleTV?

  16. Falk Mörl on February 7, 2022 at 10:21 pm

    To my knowledge, there is no ANT connection, currently, in Rouvy AR.

  17. Miguel Maliwat on February 7, 2022 at 10:22 pm

    Why does rouvy ar doesnt have speed sensor option

  18. David Fournier on February 7, 2022 at 10:24 pm

    Hey Tariq – Thanks for the great video and taking the time and great breakdown by the way..i’m a fan and just subscribed:<) With a Tacx or any of the smart trainers out there today. Do they easily pair up your HR information, via an ANT?

  19. Connie Alden on February 7, 2022 at 10:25 pm

    What would be a good one for a senior that needs to lose weight need to start out slow

  21. Lucas Kelchtermans on February 7, 2022 at 10:28 pm

    Can I also use Kinomap and Zwift with the Fitbike Ride 6 iPlus hometrainer? I am thinking of buying that one…

  22. Rogelio on February 7, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    Gracias por inventar la bayeta

  23. wOhst on February 7, 2022 at 10:32 pm

    Rouvy looks like Zwift to me.

  24. Dan Ryan on February 7, 2022 at 10:32 pm

    Thanks for the very informative video. I am looking to purchase a stationary workout bike instead of a trainer and I was curious to see what the various apps looked like…

  25. Andrew L on February 7, 2022 at 10:34 pm

    tried rouvy before, it was problematic. maybe my PC isn’t powerful enough ?

  26. Gaurav Kohli on February 7, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    Is anyone using BitGym? Need reviews before I buy their premium

  27. Ron Sternberg on February 7, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    Are all these apps designed to work with the Oculus headset?

  28. HyperGaming on February 7, 2022 at 10:36 pm

    Thank you for the fantastic video! I’m about to start indoor cycling and this was exactly what I was looking for!

  30. fang yang on February 7, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    What is the name of 4th app?

  31. Brent on February 7, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    Are there any VR apps for biking?

  32. Andres Perdomo on February 7, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    I had a Direto smart trainer and unfortunately I had to take it back because of some issues with connectivity . I did two FTP test and I lost connection both times mid way also while riding , since it needs power to work it wasn’t able to change intensity . I changed it for a tack, thanks for the reviews. do you have anything on how to create a indoor cycling studio , like what is the best computer to use, stands, mats, fans, and how to set it up. new to this like many other in times of isolation.


  33. Jiaying Wei on February 7, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    Do you have any thoughts on the BitGym App?

  34. Lara Lary on February 7, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    good one

  35. Lance Gallup on February 7, 2022 at 10:42 pm

    Thanks man – very helpful!

  36. gay runner on February 7, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    i buy a runn module and it does not work do i have to download an app to make it work

  37. Cookefan59 on February 7, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    Why did you obviously leave out Zwift?

  38. Quinten Schutte on February 7, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    Thank you for sharing this.
    Will like to know what will work the best with rollers using Gamin .
    Thank you

  39. Mark C on February 7, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    Will the FulGaz and other apps work with the Favero Assioma power meter pedals?

  40. Mike Caffyn on February 7, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    As of April 2021, the Garmin Tacx app works pretty well too.

  41. S Galen chapman Jr on February 7, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    If it doesn’t work with Bluetooth,then I don’t want to use it. I will stick to the ones that work on my Apple TV.

  42. Sandra Lugo on February 7, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    Can any of these be used for a Sunny spin bike with a Wahoo Cadence and Speed sensor?

  43. Ron Barnett on February 7, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    Hi, I am new to smart trainers. …enjoyed your video.
    I have a few questions:
    1) what are the pro’s and con’s of using a bike trainer -vs- Stationary bike
    2) how much difference does it make to have a trainer that has a device that will lift the forks up and down to simulate elevation? what are the best trainers that have this function?
    3) are there trainers/stationary bikes that also allow leaning left and right to more accurately simulate a real ride?
    Thank you

  44. Peter Willson on February 7, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    I stopped Rouvy…complicated setup and I had difficulty knowing if I was riding with a real person or a computer generated person. Also, it was the only app that timed out my computer every 20-30 mins.

  45. Elaine Remains on February 7, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    i don’t understand, i’m new to searching for this stuff… i want to use a VR headset… this seems like i would have to prop up my iPad and stare at it… what’s up?

  46. srbill2000 on February 7, 2022 at 10:58 pm

    I like BKOOL but they don’t have an app for the iPhone which is how I connect to my TV.

  47. Tee on February 7, 2022 at 10:58 pm

    Hi Pablo – I have so many questions but I’ll try to keep simple. Can any of these be used with any kind of exercise bike (I got the Jokoto X2). Also, which is the simpliest (I am a beginning & not concerned about price) but my question is how is it that I sync my bike to the app? Some people have said Wahoo Cadence device, some have said it’s no good and others say I don’t need it at all. Mind you, I am really not very concerned about stats such as speed, cadence, calories etc (my bike already has some kind of digitital read out on it) but what I DO want is to be able to "feel" like I am actually riding on the trails, streets, etc along with the other riders. In order words, I want a virtual experience. How do I get that? I have Windows 10 laptop and Android phone but I’ll get an Ipad if that’s what I need. Be specific if you can and thank you so much!

  48. don H. on February 7, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    the kinomap lifetime contract costs a one time fee of 229 $ and not monthly !!

  49. Mike Caffyn on February 7, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    Forgot to say – it works on Android these days too.

  50. Najmudin Najmudin on February 7, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    Assalamualaikum Tareq. I have wahoo kickr4 and climber. I use Zwift and Sufferfest now. But I want ask you : when I want to try my friend’s route from strava, what application that can do this ? Thank You
