In fact here, read this: https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2018/10/tacx-flux-s-trainer-in-depth-review.html#comment-3017044 Funnily enough DCR had to get a replacement for his review, seeing as the first... had the exact same belt problem everyone has had. (lol)

There have been some manufacturing changes since it was originally launched almost three years ago, but they were already present in the 2018 version of the Flux before they changed the name to Flux S. It's the same device barring the legs, as evidenced by the tons of people - me included - that have had both named models fail in exactly the same way. People have even taken them apart on the FB group and found the exact same construction.

Planet X do some great quality helmets for much less than this. They do a very highly reviewed helmet currently for £15. Also the factory door price of helmets is very low, starting at about $3 for certified helmets it's only plastic and foam pretty much. It's fully possible to have a high quality fully certified helmet that retails for £10 or less although such helmets wouldn't be sold at LBS's I'm sure, it would likely be a lower margin, higher turnover retailer. https://www.planetx.co.uk/c/q/clothing/helmets

johnnystorm

At £35 this is about as cheap as a high-street bike shop would sell an adult helmet for anyway.

bonzobanana

Just remember even though it has all the tech inside, once you drop the helmet against hard concrete or you have a minor accident where your head is knocked it still needs to be thrown out and replaced. It's one only use, once it has taken any reasonable impact to the shell of the helmet, the foam compresses internally and that is your one use gone. You often can't see this externally. Even if you treat it well and it never gets an impact it should be replaced after 5 years because the foam and plastic degrade as they age. If you have young children cycling I've seen it recommended you buy 2 helmets at a time so always have one in reserve. Helmets don't have to be expensive though, any helmet sold in the UK should be fully certified and safe. In this instance it is better to buy cheaper helmets and replace quickly when necessary rather than spend a lot and then resent throwing the helmet away when you should.

w0nky

Yup, lights on back of helmet to improve visibility v sensible and also well worth updating an old helmet.Trying to use a handbar switch for this and do hand signals while moving through busy traffic seems hazardous in itself. I think this would be most valuable when u just need to pull slightly out into lane to overtake a parked car etc. Got the Kids the equivalent crivit kids helmets with red light on rear. They are smart and clear at reasonably short distances. I don't think the light is strong enough to really make a difference at any significant distance or replace a substantive bike light.

Gareth79

Late reply, but you can do it relatively cheaply if you trawl eBay/Gumtree and Facebook groups and buy used components and then trawl the retailers for everything else - the prices for parts do vary significantly. I recently built a bike with Dura-Ace Di2 and paid £70 for a 2nd hand 9070 rear derailleur, £180 for a pair of new-old-stock 9070 shifters, then Amazon has some really good prices on the junction boxes, Wiggle is cheapest for cables, battery was from Ribble. I did buy a new front derailleur because I wanted Ultegra (the steel cage will be stronger) and strangely they are quite hard to find 2nd hand, but Condor had one for £130. I'd not advise buying a 2nd hand battery unless you know it has been bought recently, but IMO all the other components are durable and would be no problem to buy used.

daern

Fair point. Missed the context :)

Whitedot

He was answering a question of whether pros are using it.

daern

Yes (to some extent), if you're running 11 speed Shimano already, something like this may work: https://www.vanillabikes.com/products/shimano-ultegra-8050-di2-upgrade-kit There are a fair few caveats here - frame routing of cables, battery location, brake caliper compatibility etc - but if you can be confident that you can make it work (or pay someone to do it for you!) then you should be able to get up and running for less than half of this full Dura Ace groupset, although clearly this is only a partial groupset and relies on your existing drivetrain. Bit more expensive for a similar 11-speed SRAM eTap setup: https://www.wiggle.co.uk/sram-red-etap-11-speed-groupset/ As of now, DI2 allows you to configure any button on any shifter to do what you want it to do (you need the bluetooth adapter though!), so you could shift sequentially using only the left shifter, but I don't think eTap lets you do this today. This may be academic anyway, as the shift mechanism is so light with both systems, that you might find you'd be able to shift as you do today with the lighter electronic action. None of the options are what you would call cheap though and if you're running 10 speed Tiagra today, you'd also have to budget for a switch to 11 (or 12!) speed, unless you are willing to hunt for the older 10 speed di2 stuff on the used market.

iainmartins

Are there any cheaper ways to get wireless electronic shifting on a road bike? I have difficulty using my right hand , struggling with the combined brake and gear shift on my shimano tiagra .

The Raleigh brand is owned by Accell of the Netherlands and they treat it pretty much like garbage. The bikes come from low end factories typically Bangladesh with some higher end bikes getting assembly in Europe but Accell put quite a high margin on them as the Raleigh brand has nostalgia for many people in the UK so they can be slightly exploited and are prepared to pay a small premium for the brand. Some of their entry level bikes are about Halford's Apollo brand quality but the pricing is much higher. I doubt 15% will do much for value. Some smaller independent bike shops stock Raleigh for their entry level bikes. You might even be able to negotiate a 15% discount with the shop anyway. Looking at this folding bike. https://www.raleigh.co.uk/stowaway-7-stw720bk It's £400 on the Raleigh site so could be discounted to £340 but I've seen it for £250 in Halfords frequently and occasionally £200 with discount codes. It's just a generic folding bike from the far east with the Raleigh brand slapped on. At £340 you could buy a Carrera Intercity which has far higher quality components. Go Outdoors do a decent Claris equipped folding bike for around £300. Take off the Raleigh brand and that folding bike is worth about £170 approx.

Both the cheapest and the most expensive helmets have to go through the same tests to meet the required certification. Some of the higher end helmets might do that in a more stylish way or might achieve it with a lighter weight or maybe be more aerodynamic but it's the same tests. With bicycle frames it is the cheapest heaviest steel frames that often exceed the their tests by the highest margins. You'd never know that listening to most cyclists who seem to think you can reduce a weight of a product by a huge margin and still have greater strength and durability just because it costs more. Saying that you do get products with fake certification sometimes and while I like poundstretcher it seems like the type of shop that is always sourcing the very, very cheapest goods that would be more likely to have fake certification. There may be a clue to the actual manufacturer on the packaging or paperwork and then you can check online to see if it is a good manufacturer and approved/accredited by CNAS or similar Chinese authority. Good fully certified helmets come out of Chinese factories for only $2-3 possibly less. At £7.99 that would be a fair margin but if they are struggling to sell them they may be selling at cost or even below. It's only a bit of plastic and foam and fairly simple to manufacture. It is not expensive to make a high quality bicycle helmet. It's not what a product costs to make it's what people are prepared to pay that counts. People who are obsessed with their own or their families safety can be manipulated to spend much more money than they really need to.

Been meaning to get a new helmet for a while, this'll do nicely. Thanks OP!

bonzobanana

Remember bike helmets are controlled by strict certification. They have to pass a series of tests before they can legally be sold in the UK. The factory door price of helmets can be only a couple of dollars and still exceed those test standards. They are only plastic and foam materials which are exceptionally cheap materials. The most important thing is take time adjusting to get a good fit and replace the helmet after every substantial impact to a helmet. I have Cannondale and Planet X helmets and find if anything the Planet X helmet is better despite the full retaill price of the Cannondale being something like £70 and the Planet X £30 and I bought the Cannondale for £10 in a sale and the Planet X was £4 in their recent buy a voucher and get a free helmet offer which basically meant the helmet was the cost of the postage £4. Just making the point a good helmet doesn't have to be expensive, don't assume this cheap Tesco helmet provides reduced protection compared to more expensive helmets.

Excellent trainer for that price. I have one and have used it for a couple of years with no issues. Lever on handlebars to change resistance from level 1 to 10. This together with the gears on your bike give you a wide range of resistance to use. As above, requires a Ant+ dongle to use with laptop. On newer phones you can download the Zwift App and connect using Bluetooth. Great trainer for anyone who wants start out on Zwift.

muhasib

Some of the models in the Samsung 'A' range also have Ant+ sensors, namely the A70, A50 and A40 that I have seen the specs of so far.

Whitedot

Almost any trainer will connect to Zwift, so many claim to be 'smart'. The key bit you want/need for the full experience is two-way communication so that the game can adjust the resistance automatically. Got to be careful with some of them (such as the Muin linked above) which say they're smart and work with Zwift, but which is a little misleading as it only works one way.

daern

One note: Unless you've been pretty anal about monitoring chain wear, if you just change a heavily worn chain without touching anything else on the bike, it will almost certainly not work properly. This is because chains wear along with the other parts of the transmission (chainrings, cassette) and if you've allowed the chain to wear too much before replacing it, a new chain will no longer mesh properly with the existing worn components. The normal symptoms of this is poor shifting and chain suck (when the chain is pulled up into the chainset when shifting, or just pedalling). My experience is that if you let a chain go beyond 1% wear (i.e. it has stretched more than 1% from its original length) then it's unlikely to work with your existing drivetrain unless you swap more bits (cassette and chainring(s) normally). I typically change chains between 0.75% and 1% and find this to be the sweetspot between cost and wear, but I also know people that ride the whole lot into the ground and then replace the whole transmission in one go. Personally, I don't like this approach as if you ever snap a chain, it can be almost impossible to get a replacement working in the field. You're also more likely to have a mechanical failure running more heavily worn kit. Mileage-wise, it's almost impossible to compare usage between different users. I've changed MTB chains at < 1000 miles when used in crappy, horrid Yorkshire conditions, but have had road chains last for many thousands of miles between changes when only used in the dry.

flity7

Great price. I paid £100 more last year. If anyone thinks this is “Poncey” well this is defo not for you! Attach your bike onto the trainer, link it up to your laptop, download a platform such as Zwift or Bkool and then find routes depending on your ability or the amount of time you have to train. Great for your long weekend ride when it’s hammering it down outside and equally as good for your mid week shorter sessions. Recommended.

buliztik

What he/she said (y)

Boobooj

It's a smart interactive turbo trainer. So if you use an application like zwift the resistance of the trainer will change as you go up and down inclines etc. It also fairly accurately tracks your estimated power (allegedly within 2%) and will allow you to track and do things like FTP tests and interval training. Cheers
