I recently read DC Rainmaker’s updated review of the Tacx Flux 2 and went ahead and pulled the trigger. It’s expected to arrive Friday so I did some further googling on it and there are a lot of complaints out there about the device. Has anyone had good experiences with the 2.1? Personally I’m not that concerned about road feel or being super accurate. I just want something that works reliably with TR and is in stock . Reliable is key here as it will be used by my wife who is just getting on the bike again after a ~ 7 year hiatus. Unpredictable resistance surging in ERG mode is going to quickly lead to frustration and rage quitting.
We chose the Tacx Flux because it’s advertised to work with 8 speed cassette’s and that’s what she’s got. Not looking to do any kind of upgrade until we have the funds to build her a gravel machine. The plan we discussed was to get the Flux 2 as it would allow for funds to be saved up for her new bike. As a fall back we’re prepared to exchange it for a Neo 2T but I’m starting to wonder if I don’t need to just cancel the Flux 2 before it gets here and get a Neo 2T from the get go.
Thoughts? Anyone having good experiences with the Flux 2.1?
