No cadence or resistance or speed
You need to check the hardware of the Bushido Smart brake unit. To be able to read the speed the brake parts need to be locked to the midpart correctly. In the picture below you can see that the electronic part of the brake is not correctly fixed. There is a gap between the electronic part and the midpart of the brake. You need to press the electronic parts (just by hand push). Once this is done you can try to connect this to the App / Software and see if all is working correctly.
No lights / red light
When you ride on the Bushido, you should see LED lights appear and illumine on the right side of the trainer, starting with green – amber – to red.
Green: low resistance
Red: Hight resistance
If this shows no LED lights at all or directly shows red LED lights and resistance is max, then this means that there is a hardware issue. Please contact your (online)dealer where you have purchased the trainer from.
T1982 steering computer doesn’t work anymore
Unfortunately it is not possible to repair or replace this steering computer.
You can use the brake unit with the Tacx Cycling App for Android / Tacx Training App for Android that supports ANT+ (Samsung devices Tablets and Smartphones).
To be able to connect the trainer to the App you need a Micro USB dongle when you have an Android device. You can also contact Tacx Support by email for a solution on Windows PC (7, 8 or 10).
