    Here's a link to it on Tacx's website, they say it's available in December 2008 -

    looking forward for therealise of that, been looking at it over the last few days, taking some TT courses and riding will be interesting to say the least.

    Will be a seperate purschase for the trainers, looks like any of them that will work with the fortius software will work with it, imagic, imagic fortius etc

    The new HD RLV's look really good too. I've just ordered the San Sebastian Classic 08 from Tacx's website, the quality looks excellent on the extract on the VR forum.
