  1. Ray mentioned that this isn’t the time to buy a trainer unless you get a solid deal. I could get a new Dorito for 530€. From what I can see the Suito (trainer that I was planning to buy) isn’t that much better than Direto. Would you consider the Direto at this price or recommend waiting for Eurobike? Much thanks

  2. I don’t think the Direto sale will last till the Eurobike and I’m really tempted to buy it since I don’t really expect the prices to drop to this kind of level at/after Eurobike. Any other reason to wait that I might be missing?

  3. I just listened episode 87. Part of the talk was devices working together, handing off workloads when a device battery is weak. I have a different idea. So I listen to the podcast by casting the audio from my mobile to my hearing aids. This is a new experience for me and i really like it. Many of our sports tech items make noises to notify us of goals, or to take a drink etc. But with the wind in our ears etc many of us cannot hear the notification. So how about a Bluetooth audio channel on watches and bike head units that we could pair with a small speaker that we wear on our glassed, headband or helmet strap. We could still hear what is going on in our environment plus hear the notifications from our sport tech. This could lead to notification improvements like a voice that says, drink now, or your varia radar says car back.
