This is mine for now. The bike is a Ridley X-Fire Cyclecross carbon with Campy Centaur 10 full group and Campy CX crankset. The floor is concrete so no vibration. Pole fan is in the back and ceiling fan overhead. Tunes come from Pandora radio plugged into amplifier. Skype is on a laptop to the left of me with the mike on a made stand that fits the Garmin out front of the bars mount when the Garmin is not on. The wooden stand in front of the bike is where I place the bluetooth keyboard and other stuff. The space saving bracket for the front forks is made of mounting hardware for print systems that I got from work, very strong stuff. Pretty comfy area for me to get the work done.

C'mon man. How do you manage it without the fan? Here is the good one. Blows like in real life ;) 40" 4K monitor under it.

No bottle cages because I took them off after I had enough of drinking out of dirty bottles. This bike when outside gets used for gravel and single track dirt trails. It's a cross bike. I use a Camelbak hydration pack when I ride it, even when I'm on the trainer. :lol:

Wow, starting to think its time to upgrade our 37" LED Monitors. Of course that little 'Vornado' sty;e fan would not provide enough air flow for the wife and I. I have a 21" shop fan angled behind us and a industrial floor fan directly ahead of my bike.

It appears to be a projector displaying the image on the screen on the wall, so probably not 4k capable.

Judging by the heart rate (77) waywardcyclist is not nervous before the start! :)

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 sources (for trainer or entertainment) so the 1080p will do for now.

Phil, have you tried some 4K content on a projector? Just curious about the level of enhancement 4K brings.

And yes, the Mallorca Ironman course is really beautiful, especially 2/3rds of the way up the climb. I'm also a big fan of the Pro rides, the riders are basically life size which helps to make the time fly by. Belkin, Tour of Lombardi, Mallorca Ironman, Tony Martin, Robert Gesink, Mont Faron, Amstel Gold, San Remo, Corsica series, and San Sebastian were my staple rides last year (probably in that order). I must have done Belkin 15 times.

I'm going through updates now (I was on 4.13!) so I need to get up to TTS speed to maximize the Neo capabilities. I did Amalfi with the Genius two days ago and speeds were perfect, then the Neo yesterday still on 4.13 and the speed calculations were way way off. I'm sure 4.22 will set it straight.

I was actually in Klagenfurt a few months ago and did the Ironman Austria course and followed the Tacx gpx route JUST so I could buy the RLV this winter to compare times. Still haven't gotten the RLV yet, but it's a long winter around here. I actually got Kraichgau recently because it looked more interesting (especially since it was filmed the day of the event).

Also checking out VeloReality and am excited about some of the videos. Tudons was my 80 mile home course one (very hot) summer. I did a slightly different out in back from Alicante using Busot > Auges > Relleu > Sella but the climb up Tudons would be the same. Also Puig Major via Fornalutx is an all-time favorite that I would love to try out virtually.
