It’s the moment you’ve probably not been waiting for – the complete DCR Smart Bike Shootout! And by ‘smart bike’, I specifically mean one that’s an indoor resistance controllable unit shipping today-ish that’s also supporting all the appropriate industry standards (e.g. ANT+ FE-C, Bluetooth Smart FTMS, etc…). None of this propriety stuff here. I’m only reviewing bikes that you can run widely used apps like Zwift, TrainerRoad, The Sufferfest, and more on. Within this post I break-down all the features of each bike and compare them side by side. Literally, they’re side by side next to me right now. Note however that I’ll give you a spoiler up-front: None of these bikes are perfect. For all of them you’re going to be making some tradeoffs. And some of them might not physically work for you. Note, I’m going to abbreviate the Wahoo KICKR Bike as ‘Wahoo Bike’, and the Tacx NEO Bike as ‘Tacx Bike’, and just leave the Wattbike Atom as-is, because they were already two words and not three. Now, for the most part, this post isn’t about a competition or scoring. It’s about understanding the differences between the units so that you can make the right choice for you.
