    Love this trainer .

    I havent been out on the bike since last november so Bought the trainer 2 weeks ago . . I had a quick 6mile spin using pc just via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The signal kept droping and pc kept freezing .Not good at all so just left it be. I orderd an ant+dongle and extension cable online. Then had to wait a week on that comming . My Wi-Fi signal wasn' great out in the shed so I bought 30m of Ethernet cable and a cheap router and wired them out to the shed . Problem solved .
    Set it all up and had another go . Done a short ftp test and I was busted half way thru but kept going anyway . I could feel the change in resistance from the off and really enjoyed it . Ended up with a ftp of 128. I know its pretty crap but shure i can work on it now . Really happy with it
