Great price! Thanks OP. Heat added. Works with TrainerRoad and Zwift too. (edit - just noticed you already said that!)

Picked this up having seen it independently. Hoping its not a pricing error because its a cracking deal.
Just my luck, I literally just found this on Amazon and came over to post it here then realize someone has already done it.
From what I've read it's a great entry level trainer.

Considering getting one myself, just trying to put together a list of things I need to get going on Zwift
I went a head and bought it along with the Wahoo HRM, ANT+ Dongle and a GYM Mat.
Looking forward to hoping on Zwift
Now suggesting it will take 1 or 2 months for delivery. Hopefully mine will turn up Friday as promised.

There was over 10 available when this went up, 5 left when I bought mine half hour ago. Guess they all sold out.
We should still get ours within a few days
Great trainer - I paid just under £300 for mine and don't regret it.
Is it zwift controllable for hills ?
What do you need to buy on top of this to use with zwift??
A
I bought one of these second hand with a spare turbo trainer wheel (which saves you wearing out your good bike wheel!). I connect to Zwift via MacBook Pro and there has never been any connection issues. This trainer recognises hills and increases the resistance according to gradient. It does not however motor assist so does not give you any extra boost on the downhill sections.. this doesn’t bother me. The trainer recognises speed
& virtual cadence. Get your self a Bluetooth heart rate monitor which will allow Zwift to calculate your Power. Great kit.

Cheers for the additional info. Do you need any extra kit to connect to your MacBook Pro? Also any recommendations for the HRM?
2 month dispatch time is horrendous!

I went with the Wahoo HRM. Get's decent reviews and doesn't cost a fortune. I also bought a GYM/Yoga Mat to put it on and from what I've been told, get a training tyre. Last much longer and are a lot quieter
Great price for a great bit of kit, heat. I've had one for a couple of years (couple of thousand "kilometers" on it) and still going strong. Mainly used with zwift, but also bigringvr.
Thanks for this - I was on the fence about a smart turbo trainer but at this price it seemed a great entry point. Despite training for competitive races I can't justify spending £1000 on the Neo right now (as I'm sure many of the rest of us can't). I may reach the limits of this but what I don't know I won't miss (having never used the Neo or similar).
So annoyed I passed up on this. I keep checking back but it seems fairly static at £303.
