    First turbo trainer advice

    I have previously eschewed turbo trainers in favour of real riding on the basis that on a turbo I get bored. However recently I am revisiting this view, what with things like Zwift, BKool etc to add interest and with less time available for me to get out due to work and home situations. I am...

    Turbo trainer advice please

    Hi all, I’m looking for a turbo trainer that can be used for my bike but also my wife’s. She’s recently been diagnosed with a brain tumour and is now post op and on chemo, but she wants to get back on her bike to lose some of the weight the chemo has piled on. Obviously stability is key for her...

    Smart Turbo Trainer with a folding bike - will it work?

    I'm considering getting a turbo as life-stuff means I don't get much time to ride at the moment ... but space is a bit of an issue. However, I do have a Dahon folder which I used for bike commuting in the before times - it's not doing much at the moment. Are there any friction (i.e. cheaper)...

    Cheapskate winter turbo trainer setup

    Last winter I went out in all weathers, but despite my best efforts to clean my mountain bike after every ride the salt spray got into places that I didn't want it to. This year I decided to take things indoors, but as cheap as I could get it. £10 for the turbo trainer, not the finest piece of...

    Do you have a bike specifically dedicated to the turbo trainer?

    I use the turbo trainer. My partner uses the turbo trainer. My bike has thru axles. Her bike has quick release. So far it's been a constant swapping of bikes and adaptors. It's an almost everyday thing. Huge pain in the butt. I'm thinking of putting my old gravel bike on the turbo and that's...

    New Turbo Trainer Dead?

    Hi guys, Trying to avoid sending this back as they’re currently out of stock everywhere. Sounds as if the resistance unit is clicking. But haven’t stripped it back to make a proper diagnosis. Any ideas on a fix? View: https://streamable.com/1s6p3x View: https://streamable.com/6zdaaq...

    Smart turbo trainer for £100 posted (or less).

    I’m after a turbo trainer which will simulate gradients on the likes of Zwift but have a very limited budget of £100 including postage. Are there any generous CCers willing to offer me a turbo trainer? I’ve had a “dumb” one that connects using speed sensors but I grind to a halt on the hills...

    Parts bin Shimpagnolo turbo trainer build.

    The first thing I would say if you are considering a similar project, is don’t bother! Unless like you me you enjoy the process, just buy a used bike, it’s far cheaper. I’ve been thinking about this for a while, my son is fed up with everyone using his bike on the TT, so I thought I had enough...
