Kickr Climb update

So after seven months my Kickr Climb died. Stopped working with either the remote or the app this week. For a couple of days if I had just my bike attached (no me), I could get it to declínate, but not elevate beyond about 6% before it started making popping noises. Now it’s mostly non-responsive.

Research after the fact suggested there are known issues with the belt failing and drive mechanism problems.

I’m very annoyed/frustrated/disappointed, especially as much as I’ve enjoyed it since I got it last October, and now I have a 7 month old, $700 paperweight.

On the plus side, it’s only 7 mos old, and I have faith that the Minions will take care of me. Put in the trouble ticket today, will keep everyone posted.

I’m sure they’ll get you sorted.

Thought I’d update everyone. Sent a trouble ticket to the minions w warranty info. They replaced it ASAP, had a new one within a week. Much appreciated!

I will say that I think my first one was ca. 2019-20, and this one appears to be latest model. The motor sounds different and louder when it changes gradient, but also beefier. So I think something has changed.
