Stagesbike SB20

Hello!

I am on the fence buying this bike. Anyone on this forum use this smart bike and can share their experience w suffesfest?

Like is ERG mode reacting fast enough for the short sections in Team scream?

It seems Kickr bike is rpm limited to 130 which makes cadence builds impossible. Does SB20 have similar limitation?

Thanks!

Cannot comment personally on it but recommend having a look at DC Rainmakers Reviews on the various bikes (Wahoo - Stages - Tacx-Watt) he has done very detailed reviews of each. Ultimately, “Each company has their own unique strengths and weaknesses”.

DC is the MOST helpful for all items needing reviews! The bible of reviews.

Hi there! There are some known issues with this bike with the app: This bike is fully interactive with the app on iOS using Bluetooth, but requires ANT+ for ERG control on the Windows or Mac app. When connecting the bike using Bluetooth, be sure to choose the Stages Bike connection and not the individual power meters. Those will report independently to the bike console, that will transmit and report to the app. If you have any questions or need help connecting, please be sure to send us an email! theminions@thesufferfest.com
