    Smart turbo trainer

    Hi all, wrong time of year I know, but my old trusted turbo trainer has died, so looking for a new one. Thought a smart ( preferably interactive ) one would be good as I have been using Zwift. If anyone has one for sale, or that they don’t use then I would be interested. Thanks

    Any advice or tips most welcome, if anyone has experience of doing this? The turbo trainer in question is an Elite Roteo/Volano. Whilst using it last night, it appears that the belt may have slipped of a couple of ridges & then split :sad: I've found a replacement belt for about £20, but...

    Appreciate this may be better in the indoor training section but thought I'd give it a whirl... When is a turbo trainer tire done? Looks pretty spent to me and efficiency is poor (as its not for the road I don't mind that so much, just more training). But just looking some opinion and pointers...

    Non-spikey flat pedals for turbo trainer.

    Any recommendations for some flat pedals that won't chew up running shoes. Just taken delivery of a Qubo Power Fluid TTand whilst I am happy to use it with a set of SPD's I'd rather use my running shoes that I wear on the treadmill so that I can swap between one and the other without hassle.

    Turbo Trainer. If I've got a power meter, do I need a Smart Trainer?

    Am looking to buy a turbo trainer and trying to work out if it's worthwhile forking out the extra for a smart trainer? I have a power meter on my bike which I believe is one way of "upgrading" as it were a basic trainer to more of a smart trainer level. What are the benefits of smart over basic?

    Turbo trainer bike?

    Other than making sure a bike fits does the weight or components matter on a bike fitted to a turbo? Other than making sure the rear derailleur is 9,10 or 11 speed I assume the only thing better components will do is give a smother gear shift. Looking at a Wahoo kickR so wheels don't even...
