Instant patches or proper glue? My proper glue ones were usually fine.
Looking to link up my dumb Trainer to Zwift or RGT (probably the latter because premium is free for duration of c-virus).
I have a power meter but it’s not Bluetooth, ant only. Does anyone know / have any experience with the product in the link below, and if something like this would make my dumbo trainer work with Zwift/RGT?
Why not ANT+ USB dongle?
It works fine for me.
I did think of that but ideally was going to use my iPad and not my work laptop (I don’t own any other laptop). Pretty sure my company has blocked all software downloads unless they are sanctioned by the company :p
Proper Rema Tip Top patches and glue. Two in a week now. "Wow I'm really getting on top of this effort... doh!"
Are they freshly glued? Maybe the higher heat is moving the patch before it's done its bonding job fully?
Is this fucked?
It should work, but I’ve no direct experience with it. I was looking into it myself, but Am sticking with ant+ key for now.
@6pt has one on order I believe.
They can be found for sale here in the UK too, if you want to avoid overseas shipping.
As per @TTM, I ordered one direct from NPE at the beginning of the month. Shipping says it’s made it as far as Chicago right now, so can’t comment on whether it’s any good yet but I would suggest that if you want it in a hurry order it from somewhere else!
Dunno, but perhaps you could look for a repair video and see if something is loose around the roller thingiebob?
Looking at this video, at 15s, it appears there's an allen bolt clamping the 'tyre roller' down. Maybe it has backed off and that's why the tube doesn't rotate along with the res unit.
I enjoyed the music.
I'll try and have a look tonight.
"25% more silent" :)
@hippy do you have this? I am looking for a wall mount-able fan
Looks like it really shifts big volume of air.
I have this, good and cheap-ish, but to be honest one isn't enough.
Two might do, but I don't see the hype about this fan.
Also, it/they won't be really effective if you plan to mount it/them further than 1m from you.
Yes we use them for work - they're perfectly fine and retransmit the signal as if it were a Bluetooth PM so would work with your iPad. Probably wouldn't work with an ANT+ FEC turbo to control it via Bluetooth though
Nope. Just came up in a search. I have a larger, slower unit that I think is pretty shit.
hmm the distance I am looking to install it away from is less than 1m .. I'd have got the Wahoo headwind but I want to save floor space, I can get two of those honeywell ones tbh
Give it a go then, they only angle 90deg from the base, so you might have to fiddle a bit to get them set up as you want.
is yours wall mounted ?
Sainsburys have big floor air circulators in store £40 odd quid.
Fans are dead, long live air movers.
Obviously all the good ones were purchased along with all the loo roll.
Maybe Cleva will get stock soon..

Can't really wall mount but it works sat directly against the front wheel.
Not yet, bound to move house soon, then it will
Yeah, this is the dog's. I have this and a big classic silver floor fan, but the Vacmaster is much better.
Good to hear first hand experience that it works. You don’t have any contacts to source from here in the UK do you?
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
