I’ve been using the TacX Neo Bike for the last 2 weeks and I had a few issues for the group to see if anyone has experienced the same things.
The first and foremost is that flywheel is extremely hot after I complete a ride, almost to the point where it is too hot to touch. Is this normal or is this something I should be concerned about.
I’ve also noticed a sort of rubbing or swooshing noise (if that makes any sense) from the flywheel area when I’m riding. It’s different than the normal hum the bike produces while I ride.
The last thing is that sometimes I hear a fair amount of creaking come from the bike. I’ve tried to investigate, but have had a hard time really determining where it’s coming from or perhaps it’s coming from multiple places. A lot of the time it sounds like it’s coming from the crank area and seems consistent with my pedal stroke.
Does anyone have any insight into these comments? Are any of them something you’ve experienced or that I should be worried about or am I being overly critical?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
