Re: Tacx Vs Zwift

Hi All I completely agree with watsupwidat. I do use Zwift but i get bored with it very quickly. If the price was to stay @ £7':00 pr month i'd probably keep it but when the price goes up for me to £14:00 pr month I'll close my account. I rode 50km of Training with the Schlecks rlv today......It was...

Re: TTS4 VR vs Fortius

Hi Alex Many Thanks..........Yes that's the one. I couldn't remember uploading but obviously my mate David did !!! @ ms6073.........Slight uphill start but basically you ride easy until you hit a red icon, then go as hard as possible, easing up at a green icon. Ride easy until you hit the next red i...

Re: TTS4 VR vs Fortius

Hi ms6073 Strange you had issues with Metropolitan. I've found the roads there virtually pan flat. We've used this course for our 4mins hard 2mins easy sessions. Riding through the park can get a little sticky but i stay away from there. I'll upload "5 times round" to Bikenet and let you know. Cheer...

Re: TTS4 VR vs Fortius

Hi ttelmah I know exactly what you mean by a lack of inertia on some VR courses, but I slightly disagree with you re sudden gradient changes in gps/real life rides. Have you ever ridden the Fred Whitton Sportive.........The approach and start of Hardnott Pass you get no inertia and come to a grindin...

Re: TTS4 VR vs Fortius

Hi Tom Sorry to hear you don't like constant gear changes. I assume you haven't ridden many CX or MTB events !! I would suggest you stay away from Downhill Valley ( lots of ups & downs ) and Montagne ( mountains with descents )....... Also stay away from Lap based training in Valeggio !! The best VR...

Re: TTS4 VR vs Fortius

Hi All @ Kostyap...........My understanding of TTS going down is the shutting down of Tacx servers. If i disconnect from the internet i can still use TTS and all my RLV's...........Is this not the case ??? Re other various points made Velodrome ........I like Velodrome alot. A gang of us use it in m...

Re: Fortius Motorbrake/cadence meter

Hi Joost You could check the sensor wires for continuity. I've never done this, but i've heard the end on the sensor comes apart revealing the two wires. If you have a multimeter you can check that the wires are intact between the sensor and the small plug. Sometimes giving the sensor a good "flick"...

Re: Fortius Motorbrake/cadence meter

Hi You say it failed after 5 secs.........I assume it's the first 5 secs and therefore doesn't work at all !! Check that there is actually a magnet in the holder ......They have been known to fall out !!! If it has fallen out a small fridge magnet works fine. To check the actual sensor, when passed ...

Hi Been ages since i used Fortius software so can't remember exactly where .pgmf & .rlv go.Take a look at the cyclingrlv site, then click on the installation tab........that should help. I can remeber that Fortius software also installs a demo rlv. Can you ride this demo ? If so then just do a searc...

Re: Neo vs Bushido

Hi Mark Just out of interest, are you using the same bike on the turbo as outside ? If so are you using the same rear wheel ? The problem with roller trainers is that the wheel must be perfectly round, and roller tension just right !! Pedaling on my Fortius feels no different to outside. Pedaling wa...

Re: TTS3 not working since updating TTS4

Hi Steve Re HR belt not working. You need to be wearing the belt and be close to the head unit with the red led flashing. Whilst the led is flashing open TTS and go to device manager and scan for HR belt. TTS should then find it and you can then add it. Sorry for suggesting this if you've already tr...
