We have had a KOM rocker plate for close to a year. I tend to use it for longer (2h++) rides for some added comfort. Otherwise it leans against the wall in our training space. I have not found it to be my preferred setup for harder workouts or races. Maybe I just haven’t given it the commitment it requires. Also, my wife does not like it at all and we share the Kickr, so the default position for the rocker plate is…leaning against the wall.
Plus one on the Saris platform. Yes it is horrendously expensive compared to others, but the build quality matches the price. Really good plywood top and bottom and metal frame for both movement directions. Even with far heavier use than I give it, it will last a long time.
+1M%. Rei 20% off 2 years ago to me is not really that bad price wise personally. Yes it is more than people want to spend but for me spending more so I don’t have to mess with it I will take it. Plus it hold my Neo bike with ease. Don’t think most rockers would or can.
No question makes longer rides MUCH MUCH more tolerable. I made the rocker plate @mcneese.chad has put out there and instantly made long rides, 3-5 hours on the trainer completely doable. No question one of the best things I’ve spend my time on, from a comfort standpoint.
Such a clean build and setup overall
