Apparently, it all started with a new indoor cycling platform headed by a chap named Eric, a want by some enthusiastic people to make indoor cycling racing ‘esports’ become the biggest thing since the Tesla share-price and a chap named Niels who had a snazzy smart-bike https://www.virtuprocycling.com/Product/ElitePrivateB2C. Eric and his platform went one way and Niels went the other. Now we know what Niels and his team have been up to! Enter Veloton
Some have argued that this is vaperware, i.e. software that will never appear. We understand that even though the platform’s launch was delayed, Veloton have serious backing and intend on launching with a splash. Let’s give them the opportunity to do this and the challenge to ensure that it meets the needs of us, the indoor training fanatics.
Thanks to Niels and Tam at Veloton, the Titaniumgeek has been given beta access to the platform and we started as we normally do by trying to break it. We connected with a non-supported turbo to see what happened and Veloton took it in its stride and the Elite Direto XR connected wonderfully.
All the info is in the video and please have a watch. We pose some questions at the end and already, the comments feed on YouTube has gone red hot!
We will continue to beta test Veloton and will keep the content flowing.
