Tacx Satori (noise level?)
I was in need of a bike trainer (first one I have ever bought). I went down to 3 of my local bike stores and all of them where pretty much out of stock.
One store had one trainer left (the tacx Satori) which they gave me a deal on I guess 320 bucks Canadian. That;s all fine and dandy but when I took it home it was incredibly loud. At first I thought it was because my tires where semi slicks that that was causing vibration. So I put on my full slick and started again, it did reduce the noise, but that's not saying much. It sounds like a dentist drill, the faster I go the louder it gets. I really can't even concentrate (I hate the sound of dentist drills!! Makes me cringe)
Is this normal with this trainer? I bought the "floor" model so it was already assembled and everything, could this be a problem from improper assembly? I don't know what to do, I really can't use it this way.
I hope this store will give me my money back, I doubt they will though. Is this a defective unit or is it normal with his trainer?
