I’v been on the Kickr G1 since it first came out and it hasn’t missed a beat, a real workhorse.
We have been switching bikes from mine to my wife’s for a couple of years and we recently decided to purchase a 2nd trainer. Reading the negative feedback on the 2018 kickr, and for the most part good reviews of the Neo 2T it seemed like a no-brainer to go with the 2T.
The 2T feels great on Z2 zwift rides and TR rides where I am riding under threshold, but I find it sucks on O/U workouts and Vo2 max workouts in erg. Feels like there is a brake on the (virtual) flywheel and feels like i’m pushing 10% more watts compared to the Kickr. I’ve used my Quarq to compare the 2 trainers and they are within 2%, when in resistance mode.
I’ve noticed the 2T in resistance mode doesn’t have the braking effect I notice in erg and spins freely if you come off the power a bit. Definitely not the case in erg! The 2T behaves totally differently in Erg, where I find the Kickr feels the same in and out of erg.
Anyone have the same experience? Any ideas on a different setting?
