Re: WTB T2086.12

I ended up ordering it from the HollandBikeShop for a very reasonable £211. it took about 5 days to arrive to the UK. Fitting it was a simple job and after updating to the latest firmware I now have a Genius Smart and am connected to Zwift :D

Re: WTB T2086.12

I think I might finally have found one, https://en.hollandbikeshop.com/bike-computers-trainers/tacx-cycling-trainer/tacx-parts/tacx-elektro-brake-unit-for-genius/ This looks like the right part, they say it is ANT+ FE-C and BLE and the price is good. Can any Dutch Tacx users out there confirm if thi...

Re: WTB T2086.12

Might be worth a risk for $44 but that online site has no physical address and the price seems too low.

Might be safer flushing $44 down the toilet!

WTB T2086.12

Hi,

I am on the lookout for a T2086.12 unit for my non-smart Tacx Genius.

Tacx have apparently discontinued this part but if you see one in an online store please could you PM me. Alternatively if you have one to sell I would be very interested.

Thanks,

-R

Hi Lieuwe,

Please can you tell me where you bought the T2086.12 unit from? I am very interested!

Have you bought the unit and done the upgrade yet?

Thanks,

Re: T2085 Genius upgrade available?

Thanks for your help anyway mcorn and Alex, both of you have proved much more informative and helpful than the dismissive and unhelpful attitude of Tacx support. mcorn, I agree that it is perhaps better for me to purchase a new trainer as other parts of the Genius may well be worn out as well. I was...

Re: T2085 Genius upgrade available?

I emailed Tacx support again to ask about obtaining the T2086.12 and disappointingly received the following reply True, this was possible before. But the relevant parts are no longer available separately. So in short, it looks like the Genius is a dead product as far as Tacx are concerned. A bit dis...

Re: T2085 Genius upgrade available?

I understand that they have to end of life products eventually but it is a bit frustrating as I know the parts are actually still available in inventory at Tacx. Surely if a product fails at some point in the future they can upgrade the customer to a new version of the product at the same price poin...

I had this reply from Tacx... We regret to inform you that the T2085 is no longer in stock and will no longer be delivered in the future. The electronics that have to be delivered for this purpose are no longer available and are only used for service purposes to support the product. Which is a bit a...

Re: Tacx Neo T2800

Hi Dennis,

Have you tried it on any really steep stuff like the Amstel Gold or Mortirolo RLVs?

Would love to hear how it feels on steep low cadence stuff, my wallet is getting twitchy!

Re: Garmin Vector Pairing and Power Values

Pardon my ignorance, but is it possible to do the same with the Genius. I have a Powertap so would be interested in seeing the power data from it in TTS even if it is not in the control loop to change the resistance.

Thanks,

Allen

The same thing happened to me, I received a new unit in the end. It is a bad design.

Re: new brake software 1.1.307

I am in the same position, as a winter on Tacx Genius user I started using my system again today and 1.1.273 is reported as the latest FW. Having heard about 1.1.304 and 1.1.307 I am wondering if it is worthwhile doing a manual update?

Re: ELITE RealAxiom vs tacx I-Genius

In fairness, I don't think Tacx realise what an asset Phil is.

When I was buying my Genius, the RLVs were a major factor in me choosing to go with Tacx again!

I don't even push the pedal, rather just give the rear wheel a sharp turn with my hand. That is usually enough for the motor to start and spin up the wheel.

Update the Genius motor brake FW to the latest 1.273. It is now a much better product in all regards after this update.

In complete agreement.

The Genius is a whole lot better with the latest FW. Much more realistic feel, more accurate reported power and general feel. Very happy.

Just in time for winter in the Northern Hemisphere. :D

The online update worked for me last night and the motor brake was successfully updated. TTS now gives the option to align the motor brake which I did after the update and prior to the calibration. Riding an RLV last night the brake now feels more realistic on the flats and downhills. Where as in th...
