  1. Hi, in the videos you mention that you where still performing test to see if the previous version issues where fix. Do you have a eta ? I’m looking at the kickr or the neo 2t and find it not easy to choose one or the other. Price, maintenance, accuracy (both looks like they have issues. ) and silent.
