Heads up – May 19th, 2017! REI and Competitive Cyclist currently have 20% off sales going on, which includes trainers. They do this occasionally, and it’s a great time to pickup a trainer at 20% off. Notable ones include these brand new winter 2016-2017 models:
CycleOps Hammer (Competitive Cyclist Link: $947 from $1,199)
CycleOps Magnus (Competitive Cyclist Link: $473 from $599)
Elite Drivo (Competitive Cyclist Link: $1,026 from $1,299)
Tacx Flux Smart (REI Link: $720 from $900)
Tacx Neo Smart (REI Link: $1,280 from $1,600)
Wahoo KICKR2 (REI Link: $960 from $1,200)
And using any of the links above supports the site. Don’t forget the coupon code ANNV17 for REI and then coupon code ITALY100 for Competitive Cyclist. For those curious, the Tacx Neo is my go-to trainer that I use when I’m not testing something else. But if you’re looking for the best bang for the buck, it’s the Tacx Flux.
Note we don’t typically see new trainers announced till summer (at earliest), and then availability for new stuff is usually October-December (depending on luck). I’d have no concerns purchasing any of the above, they’re all solid trainers with wide app compatibility. Sale ends May 29th, but historically speaking these trainers often de-list after a few days, so quite honestly I’d buy it now (and return/cancel later if need be) before it disappears. Oh, you can get free shipping to your local REI store. Woot!
