Samesies. It says arriving on Saturday, so that would be fantastic.
I think this is the first time I’ve really honestly passed on an amazing deal like this because “the economy”. As a recent retiree, I have to learn curb my spending, and this is my first “do you REALLY need to spend that money” moment. I’m jealous of the rest of you! I picked a terrible time to take a package and retire early!
*This means my OG Neo will die any day now
i passed also, as my hammer H2 works just fine, my wife was happy with my decision
I’m in the same boat, for a couple of reasons.
I don’t want a second trainer taking up room, so I would have to sell my current trainer, which is just a pain due to weight/shipping and these 2022 tax rules for selling >$600 of stuff on eBay in a year gets you a tax form from eBay that I would then have to work out what to do with.
If my trainer dies after this deal is done, then I’ll be switching to being a rower on my wife’s almost unused WaterRower
You mean you guys don’t just accumulate boxes of old cycling gear and years later look in the garage and wonder “How did I end up with all this?!” Haha, kidding, I will be selling my old trainer + my old KK locally for sure. I don’t mind a steep discount, especially for someone is getting into the sport.
So tempting, just so much uncertainty about if I can sell my current trainer, even for a low price.
Let’s have a 60% off code for some GRX-870 carbon gravel wheels!!!
I just messaged Saris about this but in the meantime, I’m wondering if anyone has experience using the H3 with a Shimano Ultegra 8150 12-speed drivetrain and if there will be compatibility issues?
Thanks for the link!
UPDATE October 2021: Shimano’s 12 speed road drivetrains were announced recently for their Dura-Ace R9200 and Ultegra R8100 series. These 12 speed cassettes will fit on wheels and trainer freehub bodies as long as they’re 11 speed Hyperglide freehub bodies.
Now the question is: does the H3 come with an 11spd Hyperglide freehub? I assume the answer is “yes” but I’ve been unable to confirm.
Yup, the Saris stuff is a standard 11s HG FH.
Damn I had to buy that my Taxc S has been on its last leg for a while and now my GF can finally train with some power. My gravel bike is a 12 speed sram mullet. Can I use the eagle chain on a 11 speed shimano?
Yeah, there are a few places I have seen it mentioned that you can do decently well with that combo.
H3 successfully delivered …and a riding buddy’s as well.
It is not too late to get one. Another buddy ordered one today and the code is still active.
My wants is telling me to go for it…
My needs is telling me to hold and rather get a 955!
I still have an original gen1 (2012) kickr and shockingly haven’t had a single issue with it. I’d still have probably pulled the trigger on this deal if I didn’t also have an InsideRide E-Flex that I don’t want to have to replace with a different rocker as part of the upgrade.
I’ve had to replace the bearings in mine 3 times, with the exception of the on behind the free hub ring that I can’t get out. So that one bearing has a lot of time on it. I finally replaced the belt recently because it started skipping (additional tension didn’t help). The new belt didn’t help the skipping unfortunately so must be worn cogs. Only skips on low inertia high power stuff though. Strava says I have 24k “miles” on it so definitely got my moneys worth.
Just for Canada and USA right?
Ok, I finally hit the submit button. My H1 is getting along nicely after all these years but this deal is too good to pass up.
I’m getting mixed results when looking for this but you can or can’t put a 12 speed cassette on the H3?
