Thoughts on Zwift’s Infamous $5 Price Increase.

Thumbnail Credit (dcrainmaker.com): Zwift​ ​is​ ​on​ ​track​ ​to​ ​reach​ ​300-350K​ ​users​ ​this​ ​coming​ ​winter​ ​and I​ ​believe​ ​we​ ​can​ ​reach​ ​1M​ ​users​ ​within​ ​the​ ​next​ ​2​ ​years​ Thumb Overlay."The $5 piece specifically can be looked at a variety of ways. For many, it’s merely 3-5 gel packets per month (assuming you buy them in bulk), roughly what you’d go through on a couple hours of riding. It’s less than a single trip to Starbucks for most people. And certainly, it’s far less than any coaching plan or coach would cost (not that I’d compare it directly to either, but an element of that exists in Zwift)." (dcrainmaker.com)
