i have been looking at the videos and it looks like the platform is causing the unit to react like the Neo. Any chance you have been able to put the unit on your own video and study it?

@liketoride - I asked my wife to observe me while pedaling seated and she says the platform doesn't move at all until I stand up. On exaggerate grinding efforts at low cadence and higher watts I do notice what you said and experienced on the NEO :shock: However, I typically don't ride low cadence mashing style. Like standing up though, I was able to "correct" the tilting of the rocker plate like I did when standing up as soon as I was aware that I was doing it. At high cadence and no tilting of hips or rocking upper body the plate works naturally without me having to "correct" the way I pedal on the rocker.

@Mcfarton - no Lightweights on Zwift yet. I was hoping to get 77 Composites UL rims with Berd Spokes on Zwift. Lol.

@Liketoride- I use a 4x6 100lb CrossFit style mat. It is heavy and the mat and the rocker plate will not move. I got the mat at ExtremeTrainingEquipment.

I always wanted to try this so decided to give first try with a $20 seatpost and $36 saddle. It's cheap Chinese carbon so not the lightest end result but still a massive weight savings from original starting point. This will be much lighter with an Ax Lightness seatpost and Dash saddle which I will try some other time maybe.

I snapped those pics while the resin is still wet. I figure I give it a couple days to fully cure before I take it off and weigh it. It's feels super strong as I tried to break it by hand but unable to.
