I’ve been thinking about upgrading my 2016 kickr to the silent version but having trouble justifying the cost, as mine has been a workhorse to this point (I’m sure it’ll crap out today bc I posted this).
While wahoo says the new version and old version aren’t upgradable, based on my breakdown, what makes it silent is the different belt with the longer parallel grooves vs the little teeth. Thru axle aside, it seems that the only differences to make this silent are a different main (large wheel) and a different internal metal sprocket, both with the proper grooves.
So, has anyone ever attempted to replace the internal sprocket/larger wheel with some new parts? I’m sure some of the gearheads here could either figure it out or have done it before.
