Waypoint Messages

When on a film on the Mac OSX version of TDA, I cannot see any messages about the flagged waypoint like in TTS. For example, in the Rome film, there are many flagged buildings that the route passes by, but I do not see what they are (unless I look on the small map and it happens to be labeled). Is t...

Can't use metric units?

I'm using the Mac OSX version and in the Cloud under Subscriptions & Settings have Metric selected. However, TDA still displays in miles, mph, etc. Oddly, KOM distances in the lower left box and on the KOM distance on the bottom progress bar are listed in meters, km, etc. I'm guessing if I change my...

Re: Tacx Ironman - blew up with white smoke

I just ran into the same issue. My Neo broke this week so I used the Genius for the first time in a year. After 1h30m the failure occurred. I'm very intrigued by Bartalon's experience. Which capacitors where blown? Was it obvious they were faulty. I've taken out the motor (drive side) and was able t...

Re: Tacx Neo T2800

[A]re you sure you have the 'Sawbone' issue? ... the issue was typically observed right out of the box or within a very short period of time after starting to use the trainer.. I'm fairly certain. Now, I admit my trainer bike is neglected and abused with a drivetrain that's been on it's last legs f...

Re: Road feel at the front

I have to agree with mcorn on this. Mcorn has been a value to this forum and clearly has valuable insights on Tacx, past, present, and future. Personally, I agree with Mcorn. Front vibration is not a valuable feature. I think a more valuable feature would a gimbal effect - so when you lean or put po...

Re: Tacx Neo T2800

So after 11 months (5-6 months of active use) my Neo has developed the "Sawbone" illness (loud vibrating noise that rattles the whole bike). It seems to come on slowly and has gotten progressively worse over the last week or two. At first, it was only on big descents but now I can feel/hear it at -1...

Re: Show us your junk!

Haha, well that's higher than usual, fussing around with getting the Neo hooked up (my arms are huge now), mounting, dismounting, TTS setup (computer is in another room), and running up the stairs to grab a camera is a workout all in itself. They do make 4K projectors. I don't have any 4K content or...

Re: Terrible noise from my Genius

I ended up doing the Epoxy Fix to try and quiet my Genius. Hope it works! Here's a step-by-step for anyone who wants to try the same:

Re: The noise from my Fortius Brake roller is caused by

I guess there isn't enough forum activity in the (northern hemisphere) summer to get a response so I took a deep breath an went ahead with the epoxy fix on the Genius. Fingers crossed. I posted some nice step by step photos as I went along. Let me know if I interpreted this thread and the process co...

Re: The noise from my Fortius Brake roller is caused by

What is the success rate of the Epoxy Fix with the Genius trainer? I know mcorn tried and apparently it failed after a few months. Does the sleeve and PU differ from the Fortius or are they the same? My Genius is very loud (88db minimum while soft pedaling uphill, 102db max). The sleeve doesn't appe...

Re: Terrible noise from my Genius

Glad I decided to search for this issue. I thought my Genius was getting a little loud so I decided to measure it. 100 db max 92 db avg 86 db min This was on a recovery ride where I was pedaling easy with no hands while I did the recording. 86db on a 5% grade slope while soft pedaling makes me think...

Re: An open plea to TACX

I think this is a sensitive issue because it involves all the stationary trainer players in the market. The OP brings up a video based program 'Sufferfest' (and if I'm correct) it's available on Strava, DVD, etc. Does sufferfest kill Tacx, their hardware trainers and software programs? No way. Not i...

Is my Genius getting louder, or am I just crazy?

I've been riding the i-Genius for 2 or 3 off-seasons now. Due to health issues I've only been able to use it for ~ 150-200hrs. However, it seems to me that the resistance unit has gotten slightly louder over that time. I used to be able to hear a pin drop (or my quiet fan) at 1% or on flats, but now...

FTP Test Results

I did the 20min FTP test and after the test was over, a message said it added the score to my profile - but now I can't see the results of the test or the catalyst charts. Luckily I remember what the message said, otherwise that would have been a painful 20 minutes for nothing :)

Re: Show us your junk!

Very nice Jon! I like your thinking. Good screen size too! I also shot at a wall for many years (after having a drop-down screen, but the wall solution is nice when you move around a lot) and once tried a different paint but it wasn't projector specific. I've been checking out the W1080ST ( US price...

Re: Show us your junk!

Edgar did you get the BenQ W1080ST? (one of the few short throw 1080p projectors out there)
How do you like it? What's your screen size & throw distance?
My redesign is hitting some logistical snags that might require a 2nd projector.
