- Easy to assemble
- The bike is great using it with the Bkool simulator
- Quiet operation as advertised
- Setup and pairing to the simulator is very straightforward
- I have tried the simulator both with iOS(iPad Pro) and OSx (Macbook Air) - both work fine.
- The bike is shipped on a crate and the delivery company will not take the crate back. So the buyer needs to find a way to dispose the crate. I am assuming small glitches will be fixed over time.
Looks like having this bike will necessitate a Bkool simulator subscription for reasonable usage:
- It is not possible to control the resistance of the bike without connecting it to the simulator.
- Bike does not support simulators any other than Bkool simulator. This is expected as it advertised that way - however what is disturbing is that there are no plans to support other simulators. Looks like this is done deliberately to lock the user to the Bkool ecosystem and charge them a monthly fee just to use the product. Apparently there are no plans to support Zwift (https://support.zwift.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360010836992-Bkool-Smart-Bike-on-Zwift-) for example.
In my opinion it is not acceptable to force the user into using a specific simulator and charge them monthly to get reasonable performance out of the product that is sold. I am hoping that the limitations with the simulators will be fixed soon.
Just to be clear, there is nothing wrong with the Bkool simulator and I enjoy using it. However different simulators have different strengths/weaknesses, and the user should be free to make their choices. I hope Bkool management decides to compete with Zwift and other simulators based on merit and not through forcing the users into their ecosystem.
The ANT+ plug was missing and I had to buy one separately (A few days later, I could finally got the Bkool one at the dealer's). The bike connects to the computer but do not send any data : the resistance does not work.
After 14 days and a lot of back and forth with Bkool and the dealer, they are still in the process of just confirming that the bike does not work : no attempt to fix it had been made.
A technician came, finally, yesterday to run a set of tests and constat, again, that the bike is not working. He came without spare parts and his goal was not to fix : anyway, the local dealer does not have any spare part and Bkool have not sent, yet, any.
This does not look serious enough to me : I was happy to buy a fun object, but, instead, I've got problems, disappointment and frustration.
I am in the process of giving back the bike and getting a refund. Silence from Bkool and the local dealer since.........
edit 7/4/18 : Brian, sorry to contradict you.
I bought this bike from a dealer found on the Bkool website when clicking on "Stores near to you". Bell's Bike Shop is listed as a Bkool dealer.
If you wish, I can send you a print screen of your own website.
