Tacx NEO Bike Smart: Unboxing and Building 🔧 // Part I

In this video I’ll cover the logistics of the process (56kgs is apparently too large for my local courier to handle!?). I’ll then turn the Lama Lab into a snow dome. Then I’ll do my best to clean up and attempt to assemble the Neo Bike Smart. It’s quite the journey for what should have been a simple process.

My pain points:

  • The box isn’t suitable for the device.
  • The instructions need to be a little easier for the general user.
  • Three different bolts for the same purpose (affixing the legs)!!??
  • The crank length options is fiddly work.
  • Adjustment stiffness… fixed with WD40… :/
