If you don’t want to destroy the floor you’re also going to want a mat. The sweat has to pool somewhere. Get the Wahoo Fitness KICKR Trainer Floor Mat $69.99 from Competitive Cyclist
I used to run Zwift using my computer with the Zwift companion app on my iPhone, but I’ve found running Zwift on an iPad to be so much nicer. Amazon usually has some of the best prices on iPads. Grab one and complete the perfect Zwift setup.
If you go the iPad route you’ll want a mount to keep it close while you are riding. I’ve used the Tacx Handlebar Bracket for years without dropping the iPad once.
Stay cool with a fan. I’ve been using a Dyson bladeless fan for years, but they’ve become stupid expenisve. With the bad winter air in Utah when I open the window I also use a Germ Guardian HEPA Filter air purifier. The ULTTY Bladeless Tower Fan combines the two into one device and saves money over buying two devices.
Want to steer while riding in Zwift? Pick up the Elite Sterzo Smart Steering Block. There are a couple of secret MTB trails in Zwift where your front wheel isn’t totally useless.
