    You're right about the domestic violence stuff. My BIL is a police officer (small country town) and they are preparing for increased domestic violence as more and more restrictions are put in place.
  2. There is always PerfPro. It's not free, but you get a trial period and it's desktop based. USD100 for the software. Drew (the guy who wrote it) is always updating it and it is about to undergo a big update (Beta is out). It's great if you want to do your own thing and don't want to pay a subscription. In my opinion it is really best if you want to do erg workouts (where the trainer controls effort - so 15min warm-up / 10min at 95% FTP / 5 min at 65% etc etc). You can ride courses though. Happy to help anyone with setup etc.
  3. Busy day for Ironman - SMH half cancelled. Sorry...'postponed'
  4. You'd think, given it's sponsored by Go Pro, that they would replace his GoPro 3(?) on his helmet!😀
  5. There is general consensus that it is not 100% See Patrik's post for example. As Peter said though, it's better than nothing and exposing the testing (or lack thereof). Cam Wurf has also put his up.
  6. It's the result of a lot of back and forth between Jan and Uli. Uli has been asking lots of questions of Jan around doping and Bahrain 13. To his credit, Jan is responding. It's all very civil.

    Tacx Neo 2

    True - the order is only placed... they may not accept payment in which case the great Tranny Tacx heist goes up in smoke.

    Tacx Neo 2

    From an Australian law site Wrong price Where all units of the same item have been priced incorrectly or are scanning incorrectly at the register, the seller does not have an obligation to honour that price. In these circumstances, the seller is within its rights to correct the error at the register by offering you the item at the correct price (provided this is done before your payment is accepted). A seller can’t attempt to correct the error or claw back any money after they have processed your sale and accepted payment, as the transaction (and the contract) is deemed complete

    Tacx Neo 2

    Just bought 2! Isn't there some sort of consumer protection around these kind of things? i.e. if a store displays at $5, the customer can buy for $5? Not sure if it applies to the web or UK though... Fat Pom?
  11. Thanks all, I appreciate the feedback. You obviously haven't been around here long enough😜 Seriously though, thanks for the detailed response, your feedback as someone who is knee deep in this is great.
  12. In the market to replace my Computrainer. The Kickr 2018 and Tacx Neo 2 seem to be the standard now. There seems to be some bad experiences around the Tacx Neo (1+2) with a loss of accuracy at high flywheel speeds and slipping. Are these significant? When would I see these issues? Do I wait for the Neo 2T? I know there is a firmware update in the wings. On the other hand, the Kickr 2018 seems to be a high quality unit, maybe a little louder than the Neo (not an issue for me) and accuracy pegged at 2% rather than 1%. I'd prefer 1, but really, 2% is not a big problem. I like the
  13. Same. Failed update and numbers were crazy. I ended up getting a new unit through the warranty process. Contact Quarq.
  14. Nice report, but I hope they don't see this, they trained hard.
  15. I'll take your Shiv and raise you a Ventum. Not just that, the official* IM Australia Ventum * I made that up...sort of
