They've already confirmed it wont be backwards compatible and I'm a little pissed I bought a "new" kicker for the increased accuracy etc under the impression there wouldn't be any native thru axle compatibility in the near future from Wahoo.

Thats how the companies operates during the product cycle, they wont tell a thing about upcoming products. I wanted to buy a Tacx Neo, but then i realized how *f##k* up is their solution for thru axle support. A fricking QR which is pain in the arse to install/unistall everytime you need to mount or dismount bike from the trainer. And also Tacx wants you to buy their expensive adapter kir..
So I will go with Elite Direto as they did the proper thinkink and thru axle is supported out of box with your own thru axle which can be quickly screwed in.
Unfortunately new Kickr is too noisy to consider it as an option :( Neo would be the best but I would be so pissed about the QR solution which would just have driven me crazy.

I don't know anyone still running tubes on a mtb, but I'm all for having a smaller spare to carry around.

Hence, another great example of a solution for a non-existing problem.

This thread must be the least interesting Eurobike thread in the history of ww. Are we tired of new bikes and components or what..?

Eurobike is losing its "charm" as all main new products have already been presented.

If this is Eurobike, I wonder what Interbike will be like this year...

maybe if we are lucky enough, the industry people decided that interbike should be the centre of the season's attention and not eurobike, and give us all the new and exciting products and tech there!...here is to hoping!

Perhaps we should conclude that product launches don't really need the old fashioned communication channel of 'event/fair' in the era of the interwebs.

For companies, events/fairs are expensive, labour intense and very time consuming. Furthermore, the PR value is highly unpredictable.

Just sending over a sample to influential bloggers like DCR / Shane Miller is cheaper and the ROI is probably much higher (assuming the product isn't rubbish).
