I should add this is where my wife usually works from home but the Wi-Fi isn't quite strong enough for all the video calls she's having to do so I've grabbed it whilst the weather is crap again here in England!

slight side track, but I am curious. Why go with Shimano components, but Campagnolo wheels?

Because I love the Bora wheels. Simple as that! Also I don't care about the whole Shimano/Campag thing.

V-Nice setup, might be a bit of a strain to see the screen when you're on the aerobars though no?

What do you think of the Kickr Headwind, worth the price of admission?

Seems like there might be some head banging as well given the proximity of the lead edge of the desk in relation to the TT bars.

Hey, sorry for the late reply. I usually adjust the height of the screen to below the table for longer TT rides on Zwift.

Regarding the Kickr Headwind: I wouldn't buy it again. I don't really make use of the features (lower output at lower HR etc) because the low modes are more or less useless to me. Even the top end is just not powerful enough. Like with climbing on a bike, I think more watts is the way to go here. A €60 Fan from Amazon (I have that next to the headwind) easily outpeferofms the headwind. The Amazon one alone would be sufficient, but since I have the headwind anyway, it now cools my legs..

Always mindful of health and safety in my pain cave and protecting the 4 ladies in my house (and thinking a KEEP OUT sign was a bit rude).....Image

FYI - sold my kickr for far more than I paid - given lack of supply, increased demand etc.
Was gathering dust.

Don't underestimate how important having a permanent setup is lol. For me, need to be able to jump on and away you go. Cover etc, all the hassle (although all first world probs) were a barrier.

Will wait until new place / spare room etc. dedicated joint, and get quieter system etc. Probs Kickr Climb v. 2, etc. Kickr bike? hmmm
It's all about the adventure :o .
