To update my earlier post, it appears Garmin has yanked the anticipated Neo 2T sale at least until the end of the year.
are you saying the NEO 2T has been pulled from the market, and is not for sale? because i tallked to garmin yesterday and they said that they're selling it right now.
Oh geeez, no, sorry if my post came across that way! In fact, I just received mine yesterday!! I was referring to a holiday "sale" like a promotion or discount that was anticipated to be forthcoming and was recently told by Garmin that it will no longer be offering that promotion at least through the end of the year. Maybe, promotions will still be available through retailers. I don't know. I just know that demand is way up and supply is down. So, personally, I just decided to buy mine now rather than hope (1) for a holiday discount and (2) the product remains available when I try to take advantage of the discount.
okay. thx. i traded a number of emails with garmin yesterday. i expressed to them what appears to me a janky way that information about tacx gets information out. it seems we're all getting it from drew (tacx faqx), but thru the prism of garmin disgruntlement. drew is very ass-chapped about the sale to garmin, and he complains of the garmin "wall of silence" when from my perspective it's always been the tacx wall of silence. but this is, i presume, because i have a relationship with garmin and never could generate one with tacx, as hard as i tried, and drew has a relationship with tacx and never developed one with garmin. but i don't know. what i do know is that there ought to be a more transparent understanding of how to successfully own a product.
that said, i just this morning was given an unsolicited recitation from a dear colleague on a transaction involving a 2017 kickr that sounds like you couldn't switched the name to NEO. bearings. out of warranty. unable to change. crash replacement price on a new kickr. so, this appears just the state of things, and i think we probably need to recognize both the failings, and the successes, of our big industry players, rather than deciding to champion one brand to the exclusion of the other.
