my first turbo trainer arrived yesterday and i gave it a bit of a spin last night and was really impressed. I'd read such negative comments on this forum that i wasn't sure what to expect. The set up was really easy and it's so much easier than getting all kitted up to go out late in the evening. Can't wait to give it another go tonight. I suspect they can become a bit boring under certain conditions (and it's not the same as being on the road), but with a decent dvd on to watch, i'm sure i'd be entertained. Why do they get such negative comments??
