Is the Bushido being discontinued?

Post by Balders » Wed Aug 13, 2014 1:03 pm

Hi all,

Newbie on the forum, I've been looking at changing my Tacx I-fortius for a Bushido, however have noticed over the last week this has been removed from the Tacx website.

Does anyone know if the Bushido is being discontinued as I don't want to buy something that is already end-of-life.

Thanks

Balders

I also noticed this recently. I have saved the original bushido & bushido for tablet web pages offline if you wish me to forward to you..As far as i am aware i believe there updating the pages.

Unfortunately this is also a time when a lot of the tacx team take there holidays so things take a little longer

Yes, I wondered about the recent change on the website. While the portability of the Bushido is a nice feature and the brake has good resistance capability, it also comes with some connection and reliability issues. So, if you don't need to be free from a wall connection, one of the other models might be a better choice.

Maybe Bushido has been deprecated in lieu of the new iPad based version? Actually, it seems someone made some hasty updates to the website code without testing before going on holiday as you can still get to the Bushido product page, there just are no longer any links to that page from the main Trainer page.

Im guessing they will probably move to doing the smart version with the BLT & Ant+ chip. Once they have a android app that works its seems almost pointless to have a bar computer that probably costs almost as much as some of the cheaper 7" pads that have many GB of memory & could even play RLV.
