Thanks for the feedback. There are no specific exclusions for Wahoo on the receipt itself and that is what the clerks go by. I wouldn’t have posted it if I hadn’t bought it earlier for myself at this price. My receipt from the store is attached. Hopefully that is enough research for you? Maybe this deal is only for folks who actually find the too good to be true deal, score it and then take the time to share for the benefit of others. I’m more than happy with my purchase at the price mentioned previously, and I hope others can get to the store in time to get it. Happy Holidays.

Comment on Garmin Forerunner 230 & 235 In-Depth Review by Bob Tue, 01 Dec 2015 00:05:28 +0000 Sorry, I was only speaking of my experience. Th 235 might be fantastic, I’ll never know, and the 225 has been a great watch for me.

Comment on Hands-on with Garmin’s new Edge 20 & Edge 25 GPS units by carl wells Mon, 30 Nov 2015 23:54:57 +0000 Hi,
Can I confirm that there is no way to view ‘current lap’ time on any of the data screens during a ride? That would be a deal breaker for me. Everything else looks great!

Comment on Garmin Forerunner 230 & 235 In-Depth Review by Brenton Barnard Mon, 30 Nov 2015 23:47:51 +0000 Hi Imre, I wouldn’t be concerned about how tight you need the 235 on your wrist. I’ve had the Garmin 910, 920 & 225 + (Tom Tom Cardio Multi sport) and would have to say the 235 is the most comfortable out of all. I also find I don’t need to have it as firm on the wrist as my 225 and the bonus being not having to use that damn chest strap.

Comment on Hands-on with new Wahoo Fitness KICKR SNAP by Bruce Mon, 30 Nov 2015 23:26:23 +0000 Steven Lengua, appreciate better research and less rumor before posting. If you take the time to go to the Performance Bike website and actually read the Terms & Conditions of the coupon, Wahoo Fitness is among the excluded brands.
If it looks too good to be true, then in most cases it probably will be…

Comment on Garmin Forerunner 230 & 235 In-Depth Review by Earl The Patriot Mon, 30 Nov 2015 23:19:50 +0000 I don’t know how you define “fairly tight”, but I would describe my usage as extremely tight. Six holes from the top tight. Strain to get the clasp locked tight. Takes a bit of contorting to take the watch off tight. If I get hit by a car going 60 I might lose my arm but my arm won’t lose my watch tight. Imprint still slightly visible three hours and a hot shower later tight… And it reads my HR with perfection.

Comment on My Winter 2015-2016 Bike Trainer Recommendations by v Mon, 30 Nov 2015 23:01:26 +0000 i meant Tacx’s trainer line that was before Smart line, those with real flywheels, not virtual flywheels.

T2020 and T2080 look similar, you are right. But i’m still not sure they are the same with previous (2013-2014) models despite they have the same name (T2020). Maybe Tacx just didn’t change name, who knows :) It’s better to ask at support@tacx.

Snap is here at least from June 2015: link to :)

> and the Genius is already available for years

i’m not sure it is the same Genius they sell now as T2080.
maybe they did their homework a bit better this time :)

> Just saying that an issue with the Snap is more acceptable than an issue with the Genius

Take a look into Neo’s thread and comments there :)
Where issue is more acceptable, with Snap or Neo? :) Owners of Snap will say one thing, those who risked with Neo will probably have another opinion.

What i want to say – acceptable/unacceptable issues do not actually matter, it’s a virtual thing from end-user point of view. Whatever smart trainer you buy nowadays you should be ready to have issues. On the other hand each of us just hopes not to have them with his/her particular purchase :)
