Wahoo Tickr Firmware Update 1.14.0

I’ve been having some trouble with a Wahoo Tickr that I just bought back in August, so I contacted Wahoo support this morning. I thought I was running latest, but that turned out not to be the case because they released a new firmware (1.14.0) a couple weeks ago that I missed. Updating is easy with the Wahoo Utility application, just put on the sensor (so it stays awake) and connect to…

Inside Wahoo Powerlink

Wahoo’s upcoming SPEEDPLAY based power meter was announced a couple weeks ago, but there wasn’t much detail around how it works. Fortunately, due to some improperly applied confidentiality flags in the FCC filling, Keith Wakeham was able to get the detailed photos and really dig into how they should work and where the limitations are.…

Wahoo Does Something With Speedplay

I’ve never tried Speedplay pedals, but I know quite few people who ride, and swear by, them.  They’re new, totally redesigned, and Wahoo is promising much greater reliably and durability compared to the original designs. That’s all good, but there’s also an integrated power pedal coming coming “Summer 2021”. This is a nice video overview, but for those who prefer to read their news DCR also has the skinny. UPDATE: DCR has…

How long should a device last?

Rechargeable batteries have a finite lifespan. This is an unavoidable thing. Of course it’s possible to manage that lifespan to extend it a little, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s going to die, and it’s probably something that is going to happen in 2-3 years. Knowing this, is it responsible for a company to build a device where the only course of action is to throw it away and buy…

Wahoo doesn’t want to let 2020 go…

Unlike the rest of us, apparently someone at Wahoo wants to hold onto 2020. But, maybe I’m reading it wrong, and they really want a do-over, but with better translations and stability improvements; which TBH doesn’t sound like a bad idea. All kidding aside, if you have an ELEMNT bike computer, go ahead and update it. They all should have one :).  …

Wahoo RIVAL, a fitness watch for triathletes

Just because the new Wahoo RIVAL is for triathletes, doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to do triathlon, to use one (bullet dodged AMIRIGHT!). But! Most of the value for this thing is really focused on those who enjoy getting wet when they’re not riding the bike. While I’m very much not in that demographic, I love it that Wahoo has entered this market. Although, there are some teething issues, issues with…

Why lie Wahoo? Why lie? SMH

You will need to get about four minutes into the video (embedded in the post linked below), to get to the place where Ray weighs Wahoo’s new Tickr & Tickr X (oddly enough, I couldn’t find any actual weight photos in the epic write-up though). And the spoiler is that Ray DESTROYS Wahoo’s marketing claims around the new heart rate strap’s weight and width. As he notes, it’s such a stupid thing…

Wandrer’g maps now on Wahoo ELEMNTs

If you’re playing the Wandrer.earth game, have a Wahoo head unit, and have been envious of the love that Garmin gets. Happy day! You now get unridden road maps too. Hey folks, several of you have requested the ability to do custom maps of your unridden roads on your Wahoo ELEMNT / ELEMNT Bolt. This is now available on the Wandrer site. The styling options are limited compared to the Garmin but…

Not for me thanks

Having ridden the Wahoo Kickr Bike briefly, I can say that with great assurance that I will never buy one. The main reason is that I already have a Kickr, and a bike to put on it. So when I consider what else I could do with that $3500… If I didn’t have that setup, the answer would still be “no” for two reasons. It’s a hunk of metal with no compliance…
