Tacx T2086.12 upgrade for Genius trainer

Post by armitageshanks » Thu Aug 09, 2018 12:47 pm

I recently bought a Tacx Genius from a local classifieds website. I had researched the wrong version of the trainer (Genius Smart instead of Genius).

The unit I have purchased has the old ANT+ technology, which works with Tacx Trainer 4 software (which I cannot use, due to having a MacBook and not Windows!). I can use a speed and cadence sensor to connect to zwift and bkool however the reason I purchased the unit was for the auto resistance offered by the Genius Smart.

I understand Tacx offered a hardware upgrade (Tacx T2086.12) to make the unit 'smart' for 180EUR however this was a couple of years ago. A few web searches has resulted in being able to locate a unit, but at extortionate prices (around £400-500) or it not being available anymore. My question is does anyone know where I can locate one of these units at a reasonable price, or have one to sell second hand?

Thanks in advance.
