I have to admit, I was surprised with the time it took me to get my replacement Kickr…pretty speedy.
I received it and unboxed it on Thursday (2/7) allowing it to come up to room temperature. I swapped out my units on Friday (2/8).
Serial number 011847xxxxx…definitely a refurbished unit. I’m not sure how I feel about that yet.
On Friday evening, I did a 10 minute warm-up and performed a spindown in the Wahoo App on my phone. The one thing that struck me as odd was the temperature reading of the unit. It was 66.4 degrees after the 10 minute warm-up and spindown. It’s either a faulty temperature sensor or my old unit was running higher than normal. I suspect the former as my old unit would return a temperature of approximately 88.x degrees after a 10 minute warm-up and spindown.
Just to make sure the unit was really warmed up, I repeated the 10 minute warm-up and spindown again, this time my new unit reported a temperature of 67.2 degrees
We’ll see how this one fares.
All the best,
