Turbo Trainer: Tacx Booster weird noise

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Turbo Trainer: Tacx Booster weird noise

Guys... I don't think this is normal... Do you?

This is the replacement brake I got because the 1st one shipped with a damaged cable. Now, this one seems unbalanced and makes this weird noise :/

I have a bushido and it doesn't make that noise. One time I dropped it and it started to make a funny clicking noise somewhat similar to yours. Turns out the end caps were on crooked, so I took them off, replaced them, and all was good. Good luck with that, I don't think its supposed to be making that noise.

Thank you very much. I've sent an email to the retailer including the video. I don't think I can open it :/

Yeah, I didn't open it. It opened itself when it hit the ground, lol. That thing is heavy!

Yes it is heavy, indeed! That's why I took extra care not to drop it or hit it in any way...

It seems trainer shipping needs improving...
