On the contrary, let's imagine that is the newest technological development - a helmet with the function of cooling the head. :)
Or maybe a heads-up display...

Re: purchase multiplayer license

Write an email to support@tacx.com - they will provide you with a free license. Multiplayer will be free from the next TTS4 version, however I don't know when this will be released. This is the smartest move I've heard of from Tacx (assuming it is true) in a long time. I for one, cannot wait, this ...

Re: identifying RLV`s by numbers

This definitely needs to be made a sticky post. Any mods around?

Re: Australian User of TACX NEO

Hey Romper, looking at the photo posted by Alex, any Dick Smiths or Jaycars should have a suitable cable that will plug straight into the power pack and you will be good to go.

Cheers,

Hi Curve, would that be Maidstone in Kent or Maidstone in Melbourne?

Re: Can I use a Mac Mini?

It probably depends on which features of TTS you want to use, and which version of the Mac Mini you bought. I have a MacBook Pro 2012 which is similar to the lowest spec 2015 Mac Mini, except mine has a faster processor. I can run any RLV without problem, even the highest bitrate downloads. I have r...

That definitely explains why TTS4 reports my output at 200W, when I know for sure going up some of these hills I must be pumping out around 800. :shock:

Re: Raid Pyrenees I

I managed to grab a little time today and popped over the Col de Peyresoude. I have to say that it is truly awesome to be able to ride the same cols as the riders in Le Tour, although in my case, at a considerably slower pace. Only one more hill to go and then it is on to the Tourmalet. See you all ...

Re: Raid Pyrenees I

Sorry lads, the helicopter hasn't moved much since I got part 2 as the weather has been really nice of late, so I have been out on the road instead of the trainer. On top of that, Winter baseball season just started, so weekends are taken up with training and game day craziness. Will get back on the...

Re: Boot Camp

Hi Jack, If you are running Windows in bootcamp, then you actually boot into Windows which runs directly on the physical hardware. As such, it has full access to all the resources of the computer, in this case 16Gb. If you are saying that you are limiting your windows system to 4Gb, are you sure you...

This is going to make a great cap on the 13/14 indoor season (@ least for us non-Ozzies) That sounds like you might have received Part 2 already, and I am guessing that the picture above is from your...

Re: Genius brake unit, dongle, or software problems

I've had my genius for about a year now, and other than a problem which I at first thought was the genius, but turned out to be a faulty PowerPoint of all things, I have not had (touches wood frantically) any issues to report. I have the standard Tacx Ant+ dongle on a powered USB extension cable so ...

It looks like 2 may be on sale at the shop! Although it still says "coming soon", you can now add it to your cart....so I assume it's available. Awesome news. I have been waiting on this since I finished part 1 last week. Just ordered part 2, hopefully it is ready for shipping right now and it gets...

Re: what films do you want?

Top 22 roads. Some of these have already been filmed as RLVs, but I would love Tianmem Mountain Road in China - absolutely amazing engineering feat and looks like quite the challenge.

But for RLV not just iOS.
