turbo trainers
#11
have invested in a non-static turbo for road bike with a spare wheel and a turbo tyre - been away on business for 8 day trip so will try out over weekend

I took delivery of one of these and set it up over the weekend.  First ride today and it seemed pretty good - not too much movement but enough to let me know I was on a bike.  It was the first time I have got my heart rate up for 2 months so was hard work but I think some time on it will pay off

Got a decent deal too - an extra £15 off so including a tyre and a front wheel block I only spent £130

True - bet you wouldn't be seen dead on one of those  Wink  But seeing as I can't ride outside at the moment its the best way to ensure I don't expand too much!

Out of all the trainer i have tried rollers seem to be the best option if you have space.

They will simulate balance and also dont place the strain associated with conventional turbo trainers.
