  1. Glad it has survived, we will be back next year as we really enjoyed the event this year.
  2. Love mine, I've had no issues since I bought it at the end of last year. It's very quiet, my drive train and my heavy breathing is the only thing I hear. I had Kickr V1 for many years and I could not tell the difference ride feel wise. Bought it when pushy's had a 15% off site wide so great value for money. I do all my training on it so it gets a lot of use.

  4. I had the same issue, rang them, then sent a photo of the HRM and proof of purchase. Had to return the original strap they then sent a new one.

    Froome GONE

  6. Is your Ant+ stick reasonably close to the Kickr, I believe that if you have them too far apart then you may experience dropouts. I have a Macbook Pro with an Ant+ stick about 1m away from my Kickr and I have no issues on Zwift.

  8. +1 upgraded my Kickr V1 to the Core during the black Friday sales, so far I'm very happy with it and it makes no sound.

  11. For all of us that can't afford to buy one we can always try and win it via zwift:
  12. For most of us that is a lot of money to spend on a bike, but triathlon is filled with a lot of very successful people especially in the older age groups, to a lot of them $14K would be like us spending $2K on a bike. I don't think they will have any trouble selling the first 500.
  13. I think I read somewhere it goes around the bottom bracket and up the down tube. Not sure how difficult it would be to take out and reinstall for cleaning. Takes a little effort to suck the fluid out of the current bladder so unsure how hard it would be from the back of the bike, but maybe gravity makes it easier.

    IM Oz Vs IM Nz

    I enjoyed both races: Swim: NZ - the lake is amazing to swim in crystal clear water, if the wind is blowing it can get pretty wild on the lake, mass start which is not a problem as it's wide enough not to get beaten up. There is a long run to transition from swim exit. PM:- I enjoyed the swim including the weir crossing which is something different, rolling start which I enjoy, gets very shallow in some sections Winner - NZ Ride: NZ - undulating for the first part out of town but then flat in the valley, road surface mainly country chip mix with not a lot of pot holes from memory, wind can get up on the second lap of the bike most often a head wind on the way back to town PM - worst road surface I've raced on thus far, lots of pot holes and country mix in sections as well Winner - NZ Run: NZ - challenging run course, it doesn't look like it from the profile but it's an undulating run with lots of twists & turns PM - flat run with one hill, I found it easier than NZ Winner - PM For spectators you can't beat Port Mac especially on the run were they can see you multiple times per lap when running around the Caravan Park. Lots of support from locals at both races but I feel there is a better finish line atmosphere at PM, it was a lousy afternoon/evening in NZ when I did it so that would have reduced the number of people at the finish line. You can't go wrong with either race.
