Just wanted to pick the brain(s) of anyone with kids using trainers. I got my son a 24" road bike and set him up on both the kinetic road machine with inride and had tried using his 20" bike on zwift with an elite qubo. He’s not super smooth with the pedaling so zwifting isn’t a great experience for him (lots of starts and stops because he’ll pedal a little and coast), so he’s not really invested in sticking with it at the moment, even though he really needs to burn off some energy on days we can’t get outside together. Just curious if that was the experience of others when their kids started out using a trainer.
Oh, and I briefly had him set up on my Hammer and it was a little smoother (the inride seems to have a little lag and it’s hard to do a proper calibration given my son can’t get to 21mph lol). If he’s relatively smooth he can do like 30-35w but he’s all over the place with his cadence so it’s all over the map. Anyhow would love to hear from anyone with experience on getting their kids started
