    Checked eBay and £395 feels more realistic.

    Offers welcome if you can collect.

    Merlin have some good prices on Fox 34 Rhythm & Performance models.

    I'm tempted, but not sure whether to go for a Pike Ultimate

    Thanks for this, genuinely useful. Learning a new skill (like no handed rollers), no matter how pointless, feels potentially more motivating and gratifying. And if I hate it too, I've not lost anything.

    BUT I did pick up some rollers last year off here for £20 tho and I actually use them at least once a week and like them.

    I have a set of rollers that I barely use, but it would be good to get confident on them for race warm ups (mainly track at HHV). Do you use a powermeter with them, or just RPE? How structured are your sessions?

    Why?

    AI FTP potentially too high after a few weeks off due to sickness (although it did come down a fair bit). But generally I just can't motivate myself to ride in 10+ minute blocks indoors. I used to find TR a novelty and have used it successfully previously.

    Fuck that.

    Yep

    Has anyone 'quit' indoor training? Even with the roads covered in ice I can't bring myself to set up the trainer and do a ride.

    Did an easy TR sweet spot ride on Friday which I kinda hated and all I've thought about since is that I could buy a new MTB fork for what I'd sell my Kickr for.

    The worst is the anxiety that I should be training with it, as it sits dusty in the corner. I'm a member of a cycling club and when the roads aren't covered in ice can and do regularly attend mid-week training sessions, as well as sessions at HHV.

    Anyone else come back from this and enjoyed/been motivated to train indoors, or do I admit it's not for me?

    It's a nice bit of kit and a good price imo. But i'm gonna return mine as it's just an updated version of what I already have. Also the arms are weird and baggy.
