    Help for TACX Fortius

    I live in the great shopping desert of Montana. I would like to buy (I think) a TACX Fortius, but would like to see one before I up the cash. Anybody know of a shop in the Pacific Northwest/Northern Rockies that has one set up for display? I am talking Seattle, Portland, Denver, Salt Lake City, etc.

    Thanks

    Do your home work on this unit. I have one and the unit is great. The software is a nightmare. Currently shipping is version 1.3.1 of the Tacx Training Software and version 2 was recently released. Prior to 1.3.1 the software was very troublesome and 1.3.1 is a little better but not much. The hardware/software is great when it works and I love it. It's just not he most stable software I have ever seen. I ordered version 2 and hope it is better than 1.3.1.

    If your computer savvy you will do just fine. If your not you may want to wait and see what people say about version 2.0

    There is nothing worng with just loading up the Fortius software for now. I'm still using it and have never had a problem with it. Although I have been hearing that version 2 of the TTS is working for most people. Anyhow, the trainer is great and Multiplayer is great for online racing.

    Just to clarify. Fortius is software package that comes with the multiplayer unit and is pretty stable for most. Most if not all of the development cycles by Tacx is being placed on TTS which is what most people want to use.
