I’m still struggling to believe that DCRainmaker’s idea to call this “the FLOATR” wasn’t flushed down the pan before it was shared. Perhaps he’d already tried
Awesome!!! Reports like this are what make this all worthwhile
Thanks for sharing
I also purchased the e-flex plus based on your comments and couldn’t be happier. A definite improvement in comfort!!
I found a review that was just released:
Notable is the announcement that there will soon be a version compatible with the Zwift Hub trainer.
Looks like Inside Ride added the Zwift Hub as the 3rd trainer supported by the E-Flex.
And I stumbled on earlier written review that we as the founder of the new option.
I’m looking at getting the E-Flex Plus for Core. I regularly swap between two bikes on the Kickr Core (same cassette) and I’m wondering how much of a hassle it would be to swap with the E-Flex in the mix? The bikes are mine and my wife’s so they don’t have the same wheelbase. Should it simply be a matter of getting the rear dropout in then lowering the fork onto the front support, and then doing a zero load lift and place to get the front end straight? Or is there something more that might be a pain in the context of frequent switches?
Yes, that should be all it takes from what I know.
The only hiccup could be if you each had bikes with a different fork axle setup (100mm QR vs 12mm x 100mm Thru Axle), but if that matches this is a pretty easy swap.
Great, thanks. Both QR with current bikes, but it’s something to think about if only one of us gets a new bike (which are pretty much all TA now it seems).
This industry needs to find a way to let people demo these items; it’s such a financial risk to get one without knowing if one will like it/be able to handle it. Being in Canada, even if they do accept a return it’s US$120 shipping, plus tax and duty and return shipping if it’s a no-go for my wife. Or resell locally at a massive discount.
The larger makers (Saris & Wahoo) have an established dealer network with many getting in samples of these devices for people to try in a shop at least.
The smaller makers have a harder time since they don’t have that network to use. They are also working with a much smaller crew, so other than a return policy (that can get expensive for users and companies), there is not a ton of options out there, unfortunately.
I could see a demo program of sorts, but that would also include some of the same shipping costs so it’s not an instant solution either.
