I’m fascinated that Saris can still be charging three times as much for their plywood platform than an H3…::person_shrugging:

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…

Wait till you see what’s happened to the memes thread! :rofl:

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

Blenders sunglasses 30% off

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

I have some Blenders. They are nicer than any Tifosi, and other more budget cycling sunglasses I have tried. When I compare them head to head to my Smith glasses, the Smith’s lenses seem just a tiny bit better. But barely - not so much that I don’t pick the Blenders as often as the Smiths. And the Smiths cost more than twice as much.

  • full disclosure, I’m on their “factory team” - NFI, but I really like their kit, so I buy a lot of it and pay to be a part of the team each year.

Silca is selling the 8 oz. bottle of Super Secret chain wax for the same price as the 4 oz. bottle - $25. Price is good through the weekend.

If you’re an engineer type who enjoys facebook group advice for DIY you are probably fine. If you try contacting Saris customer support you will be ghosted. Unlike racks, trainers is inherently a support-intensive business with so many platforms/bikes/devices/integrations. Everything working great and then Apple breaks half your customer base with a x.1 release. Thousands of permutations of customer environments. It’s just very different support animal than a bike rack business.

My H3 seemed to struggle under hard efforts and require a reboot (usually during a Zwift race or group ride). I was happy to have purchased from REI and able to return the the unit within 12 months. Seems like stationary bikes would accommodate a more sustainable business model.
