I’ve taken my first few rides on my new H2 and already see a potential issue. Seems like the power cord input was an afterthought. It’s literally just sticking straight out of the side. My bike is somewhat in the middle of our workout room, so it’s not possible to conceal it. I’ve been trying to unplug it after each session, but I’m afraid one of these days myself/kids/dog will wreck this thing.
Not super worried about the actual power supply cable and connector, more about damaging the female end in the H2. The replacement is $30 online, and worst case I’m sure I could get a knockoff. I have a 3D printer and can hack basic stuff together in CAD, so I may try to print a protector of sorts. Let me know if you’d be interested in this, I could send the file or even mail out the part if there was enough interest.
This worried me more a bit more when trying to access the web page for the H2 support the other day, it was missing! Looking now, the new H3 is out with Saris branding. Still a little strange, I don’t know the deal with Cycleops/Saris. Should I be worried that the H2 won’t be supported?
Edit: stumbled upon DC Rainmaker’s review of the H3 - looks like they now include a 90 degree adapter for the power cord. Guess I could pick one of these up on Amazon/eBay and worry less about it?
