As a follow up to my previous Tacx posts here and here, I thought you might like to hear that after 1 month of hiding the turbo trainer deciding what to do with it, I rode it again with the same problems as before.
Very disappointed, I wrote to the shop where I bought it again (Wiggle) and arranged to send it back. Their service was brilliant. They sent a courier to collect the trainer and took it for tests. After that they informed me they had sent it back to Tacx and a few days later I recieved a full refund.
So now I have decided to stick with my ‘dumb’ trainer, at least for the foreseeable future!
