Why is this such a good deal?
- Full disclosure - this is not the newest Bushido. The Bushido Smart is listed here
- If you don't plan to use a tablet or smart phone and only plan to use the trainer, you'll get the same workout and save more than $300 dollars in the process!
What can it do?The Bushido is a self-powered trainer so no electricity needed, and it can be used inside or outside. Outside may seem unnecessary for some - but not if you've ever been at a race and wanted to warm-up.
If you get or have a USB ANT+ dongle, you can connect to a PC and use the trainer with the Tacx PC software. A kit for this is currently available.
Even if not connected to a PC or other device, you'll still be able to track heart rate, watts, speed and cadence and control the powerful brake from a wireless handlebar control and display unit.
The handlebar control has a graphical display and is programable for training sessions with controlled slope and power options.
A heart rate strap is not included, but the trainer is compatible with ANT+ heart rate straps, including the Bushido ANT+ strap.
A skyliner front wheel support is included to support your front wheel.
Can I use the Tacx Bushido with my thru-axle bike?Out-of-the box, the Bushido is designed for bikes with quick-release skewers, not thru-axles. In most cases you can replace your existing rear thru-axle with a specially designed thru-axle that has end caps to fit in the trainer. There is no standard size for a thru-axle, so you do need to check a few measurements to find the proper one for your bike. We suggest the Robert Axle Project Trainer Axles. They have fitments for the widest variety of bikes and can replace your thru-axle for both indoor training and outdoor riding.
