I have been reducing the pressure for on the trainer: Blizzards at 110 for the road get put down to 80 on the trainer. What pressure do you use? I also have an adjustment knob which I just notch up until there's no slip on a sudden sprint.fossyant said:You've got the pressure too high (tyre/roller) - I can run Michelin Pro Race 2's on my turbo without any problems - and they are light race tyres.
Is that the turbo one? And do you use it on the road as well?steve Austin said:the orange conti tyre is what i do. its a pig to fit as its very tight. but whirrs less and rolls better.
Ah! misunderstood thee. I've been trying to work out what the best combination of tyre pressure and tyre roller pressure should be. I had been using road pressure but was getting slippage hence lowering the pressure. It's probably the last 100 miles which have buggered it then. Still, before that I was getting a flat spot over the tyre so I was thinking of changing to a turbo tyre anyway.fossyant said:Nooooo.......... pressure of the roller on the tyre - tyre pressure should be the same - make sure the roller just touches, if it slips a lot then tighten - expect a little slip on a big acceleration but that's it - don't go too 'tight' as that's where the heat is.
I use road pressure and allow for a little slip.....
