Has anyone successfully used the current Specialized Venge (Disc) with a tacx Neo?
I have the “old” Neo and bought the adapter kit for x12mm thru axle ( T2835 ). I installed everything according to the manual/available videos.
But, when i try to put the venge onto the trainer, i cant seem fit it properly.
I can still move the bike left/right and it has some play at the thru axle mount (hard to say, but i think only on non drive side).
It seems like the conical end piece is a bit too small… the skewer itself is tightened/hard to close…
Has anyone an idea if I did something wrong or what to do?
It might need a different mount for the specialized thru axle. On my tarmac sl6 it did not mount correctly on my tacx neo with their axle kit. I emailed them and they said yea, you need a special holder and they mailed me one.
The conical end piece is too long so there’s play even when tightened. The solution was that they sent a replacement piece that was cut shorter and it was all gravy after that. Don’t tighten it too tight, you’ll mark up your paint job
No, I don’t think I used the spacer? I don’t remember what came with the neo, but this is a pic of all the parts I use for the thru axle. In the second pic you can see the difference between the conical end pieces. The one on the bottom is what came with the kit and the one on top is what they sent me when I told them I was having problems.
FWIW I had similar issues getting my 142x12 adapter to work with a Genesis Vapour CX.
It was using the flat piece not the tapered, and I ended up spacing it out with a thick washer, ground down to the correct diameter. Not ideal!
Same issue though, the inner section that passed through the frame was too long.
I had to use the spacer ( a black ring as shown in the youtube video it came with my friends neo 2 it is not supplied if you buy the adapter in the shop) with my venge ( otherwise the Disc calliper would touch the NEO) and i shortened the large conical piece by 0,5 cm so it goes far enough in the frame to tighten it .
Thomas and Group. I have a 2020 S-works venge and I just picked up the tacx neo 2. The issue I am having is attaching the threaded plug on the outside of my frameset on the drive side. The thru axle threads and the frame material are preventing the plug to thread into the frameset from the outside. I checked to make sure the threads are correct by threading into the frame from the inside (similar to a standard thru axle). Any recommendations from the group so that I can set my bike up on this trainer. Otherwise, this purchase may have been a complete bust.
