Familiarity: I've used it several times
I purchased the Neo 2 a couple weeks ago and it is my first smart trainer. Plain and simple it’s awesome. I can’t believe how smooth and quiet it is. It paired with swift incredibly easily and responds very well to changes in terrain not to mention the road effect is pretty cool.
Im not sure why people are complaining about the weight and lack of a handle. Yes it’s 50ish pounds but what do you want a flimsy cheap product? With the “legs folded up they work well enough as a handles. I travel a lot for work so just put it in old suitcase and drag it along. That brings me to coolest surprise features, it works without the power cord! Sounded cool when I was researching trainers but honestly didn’t consider it a benefit until I was traveling for work and forget the power cord
