Subject: This bike?
So next month I am buying a second hand Kickr Snap - All of my training is going to be indoors on the bike and maybe out during some weekends.

Will this bike do? I can't afford anything else, especially because I am just looking to begin exercise and getting fit and with the aim of completing a sprint triathlon.

I just want to check that this bike will be ok:

1) It will work on the Kickr Snap without me having to do anything special
2)I can use it for the sprint triathlon

Thanks!

That bike will work fine on the kickr snap.

It will certainly get you through your first sprint race. My only concern is that it is a single chainring up front. If you are planning on doing any riding or races that have significant hills, you may find that you wish you had a double chainring up front to give yourself more range.

Btwin bikes are pretty solid bikes from everything I’ve read. If this is the only bike you can afford, I believe it will do it’s job.

I would check the skewer and rear drop out width for the rear wheel vs the snap allowable.
Generically it should be fine, but if you want to be 100% sure you need to check dimensions.
