Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

Rodby Innovation, http://www.rodby.com/english/eng_home.htm has informed that the RL2500E and their other bicycle treadmill products, are not available in the United States, as they do not have a dealer there. That seems a shame. However, it may still be possible, with some effort, to get one in the United States - stay tuned.

I think if Kostya416 can get the Lynx trainer price down to $2000 it may become the 'hottest' trainer around and would definitely cut into the TACX market. I have both TACX and Wahoo Kickr trainers and would consider buying one at that price! I agree that adding a mechanism that would raise/lower the front end of the bike should be somewhat easy to implement (but maybe expensive?). Afterall, NordicTrack treadmills have a range of -6% - 40%. I think the real question would be how much would people be willing to pay for this added touch of realism?

I like the 'silent' claim a lot.
But for the price I don't see much of a reason to choose it over a Tacx Genius (for videos, racing, etc) or computrainer (for those big-data fans)
The videos are cheaper than Tacx, but also much shorter. Most of the videos seem to be around 1-1.5 hrs.
My only gripe about the Tacx Genius is that it's loud while descending (it's quiet while climbing and somewhere in-between on the flats).

Just a note to say that Veloreality's (Kostya's) customer service is second to none. Still working on a tech issue, but the support provided is phenomenal.

That's what people say until they try it. After that the attitude suddenly changes ;)

Short quote from one of the customers: "the trainer is awesome, I sold my (make a wild guess here) next day". The other rather lengthy review is here: http://www.wheelingdandies.ca/reviews/ . You can skip software part which is also somewhat outdated by now.
