I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that I have compiled a lot of the current deals for indoor cycling trainers. There are some really good deals and I’d highly recommend purchasing some of these items now if you are looking to upgrade your set up. Complete list is available here: Save Big on Indoor Training Cycling Equipment - ZRace Central
Please let me know if anyone finds any other notable deals
you can pay £380 on ebay for a new one, there are three left since i just bought one… warranty registration key comes boxed with the unit so should be safe to buy, although who knows what the state of customer service is like for saris right now.
I just discovered that Kurt has a direct drive trainer…for $350USD. I have no idea about quality or performance or durability or anything, I just stumbled on it. The dumb Kurt trainers I’ve had in the past have been well made though.
EDIT: Not a smart trainer. Power, not controllable.
That’s what my H3 was at on that crazy sale Saris had, but it looks like the standard price. They describe is as ‘designed for beginners’, they don’t list the max wattage, and it runs on two AAA batteries, apparently…? But +/-3% accuracy, 60db, BT and Ant+.
Oh, wait. Bike rumor says it’s not controllable. And in fact that’s not listed on the Kurt product page either–I just assumed it would be, as a direct drive. So it’s not a fully smart trainer. That’s disappointing. (They do say 700w max fwiw.)
