This is an insane deal. I wasn’t looking for a smart trainer but that’s very tempting. What’s the consensus on the H3? Is it solid?
It had some bumps in the road with belt slip and squeak shortly after the unitial release, but the change they made to adding “bumps” to the main pulley wheel seems to have fixed that. Loose power connector can be an issue and I know some have had a “top hat” failure related to the cassette.
How does it compare to Elite Suito? Thinking to ditch Suito gor Saris H3.
Better flywheel and overall feel. ERG mode use is superior and general changes to resist for that and sim mode (like Zwift) are also better. The H3 is a level above the Suito.
The general sense I get (I sold my H3 a few months ago for the Stages bike) is that the newest H3, Kickr, and Tacx models are in their own class.
Pulled the trigger on the H3. Too good of a deal to pass up.
Also d*mn you @mcneese.chad - now I have a second trainer coming to my house!
I’m fascinated that Saris can still be charging three times as much for their plywood platform than an H3…:
I’m assuming there is an H4 right around the corner or they are exiting the market
agreed. Just saying that continues to be a ridiculous price for the MP1 platform.
if only they had free shipping on the MP1. I used their 40% code, which brought it down to just over 800, then 100 for shipping…back in the almost $1000 league for a rocker plate…no thanks…

This still an H3 only thread? Ok, I’ll come back later
Wait till you see what’s happened to the memes thread!
I have been debating a merge of pulling these posts into the H3 topic and may just do that when I get to my PC.
ETA: I moved most of the latter comments into the related topic. I still left most of the “sale” related posts as-is to maintain continuity of the discussion. That follows the slight tangents we see frequently here for the various products, so I figured that was ok. Please keep any actual tech and non-sales related info in the topic linked above.
Well… I have to say that I really like the Endurance mix.
It is very different mix compared to Roctane.
Endurance has fewer calories per 24oz of mix, but has like double of the salt content.
Endurance flavor is MUCH subtle than Roctane. This makes the Endurance go down MUCH easier… it much less syrupy, if that make sense.
I think for now I will keep mixing and matching…
on longer efforts probably will do one bottle of each, for the calories and for the salt.
I liked the mix also. I added a big scoop of carbo gain to it to increase calories
Sold. Thanks for sharing.
I think Keegan is sponsored by Blenders. Anybody wear them? Do you like them? I’m always on the lookout for sunglasses. I had some Tifosi Aethon but didn’t care for the fit. I have some Smith Reverb which are better than the Tifosi
