The new bike have an updated shifters to change gears with the precision and feel of electronic shifting. Shifters are programmable for SHIMANO, SRAM or Campagnolo.

The other major update with the new bike is the addition of two additional crank lengths. The new bike comes with 165, 167.5, 170, 172.5 & 175mm. Adjusting crank length is as easy as installing your pedals in the appropriate crank length slot.

Garmin also slightly tweaked the adjustment knobs and measurements display on the bike down to the millimeter.

Other than that, the new Tacx NEO Bike Plus delivers similar specs as the original NEO Bike and the same +/-1% power accuracy measurement, same road feel simulation, and same flywheel technology.
