Thanks @mcneese.chad! I was a little bit brief but your answer is great as always.
My main gripes with Vortex are:
- Power floor (in a ramp test I have to shift down to keep up with the power!)
I am lost for what level of noise would be a noticeable improvement over Vortex and how different models compare to each other. I probably don’t need Neo-level of quiet (big fan is not silent, drive train neither) but quieter is better. As I do all of my workouts in erg mode I am inclined to try Cycleops/Saris. I would like to be able to use higher gears but as a climber I do most of the work in lower gears.
I did some price research and this is what I found is available:
- Neo 2 - 1030 euro
- Neo 2T - 1300 euro
- H2 - 810 euro
- H3 - 1000 euro
Obviously, I’ve read DCR, GPL and Tariq but the noise is better to hear than read
