Manage your StagesBike settings, update firmware, and record rides within the Stages Cycling app.
To get started, download and install the corresponding app to your compatible mobile device:
To pair your SB20 to the Stages Cycling app, tap Devices, then select Add Device.
From the list of Stages devices, select the StagesBike SB20.
Select your StagesBike SB20 from the list of available devices.
Confirm the Firmware is up to date, and select Done.
You have now successfully connected the StagesBike SB20 to the Stages Cycling app.
Using the Device Manager
Anytime you want to access your StagesBike settings, select it from the Devices page of the Stages Cycling app. If your app is not set to auto-connect to the bike on app startup, tap the link icon on the right side of the screen to connect.
Tap the Data tab from the SB20 device manager page to view your current gear, power, cadence, and LR balance. To record your ride, see Record a Ride below.
Pair power meters, set crank length, and perform a zero reset on the power meters on your SB20 on the Power meters tab.
Create new custom bike setups for your bike with personalized gearing and other settings on the Setups tab.
Record a Ride
To record an indoor ride on your SB20, first connect the bike under the devices menu, then tap on the Ride icon on the lower menu of the Stages Cycling app. Tap the green play icon to begin record.
While in the ride, tap StagesBike tab or swipe left on the ride screen to access the Control modes and view your gears.
Select from the following control modes:
- Level mode breaks the resistance up into equal steps from hardest to easiest. Select a level 1-10.
- External mode does not control the bike's resistance in any way. Use this mode if you have a secondary app connected to the bike to control the resistance, but are also recording your ride in the Stages app.
- Target power or "Erg" mode. sets the power to a predefined target, such as 200w. The resistance will adjust to your changes in cadence to keep a steady power output.
- Gradient simulation sets the resistance based on a defined incline, such as a percentage grade up or down a hill. This mode simulates outdoor riding conditions. Your gears will still work as usual to adjust your pace to the virtual climb (or descent).
Use the buttons on the screen to adjust the targets for each mode, whether a level, power target, or grade.
After finishing your ride, tap the stop button. You can upload your ride to the Stages Cloud and any other connected third-party applications. Connected apps will show up on the upload ride menu. To add more connections, tap on Profile > Connections.
