I'm in the market for a new direct drive trainer in the next few months and I'm really intrigued by the new Wahoo Climb. It's expensive but something I can get behind. However, I'm likely not to get behind the Kickr 2.0.0.1. That is to say, I used the original kickr a lot (loaner from former boss) and wasn't keen on it.

I understand why Wahoo can't make the Climb compatible with the old Kickr and Kickr2, but are any other trainers possibly able to support the Climb? Essentially it needs the ability to let the bike tilt up and down, possibly via thru-hole axle inserts for QR or similar?

I'm reaching out to a few.

Officially I'm sure Wahoo will say only theirs.

Thats a shame they can't make the older models compatible as i only bought a Kickr 4 weeks ago and would have bought the climber. Might give it to the wife and buy the new model.

Both Elite and Tacx told me no and that they don't know in the future and didn't design for this in mind. Both reminded me the Climb is not released yet. Not quite helpful, but maybe they'll chase Wahoo and build their own.

The thru-axle "adapters" might provide an opportunity for a bearing or something for regular QR bikes. But I'd have to see them in person to figure it out.

If they don't come up with a solution to make the older models compatible then they sure are going to alienate the market. There must be hundreds around the world that might want to buy the climber. Let's wait and see what happens.

Shane Millar and DC Rainmaker have both talked about the Tacx Neo possibly being compatible. It's all to do with the bike being able to pivot on the rear axle without coming into contact with the structure of the trainer. The Neo will pivot, but no one has tested (and probably won't be able to until the Climb is released to market) the clearances by the sounds of things.
