It should be rotated two full times after coming in contact with the rear tire.This is similar to how most other trainers work, but is rather different from the original KICKR in that you leave your rear wheel on the bike.For example, various readers kept on swinging by the DCR Cave over the last 5-6 weeks, causing me to scurry to fold it up and stash it in the closet. Back to using it though, the unit has a lever on the side that acts as a quick release.It’s functionally similar to the quick release on other trainers, like the Tacx series has had for a while.For example the pre-production unit I was sent had a standard US power cord on it.
You’ll likely see additional beta data over the coming weeks in other power meter related posts.Finally, when it comes to control of the KICKR SNAP you’ve got two basic avenues: The default Wahoo apps, as well as 3rd party apps.These allow you to specify the resistance of the trainer, be it for a set wattage level (i.e. 5% with a given headwind), or other combinations like ‘levels’.For those not familiar with said original, it’s pretty much built like a tank – and weighs the same as one too. Meanwhile, the KICKR SNAP ate a few less cookies and ended up at 38 pounds (17kg).While that may sound excessive, it’s actually the extra weight that adds stability, as well as durability in the parts (using metals and such as opposed to plastic). But just about everyone already has one of those lying around the house anyway.
