Hi, anyone recommend a good turbo trainer or any links to previous threads.Looking for a fluid one really as I believe they are quieter than magnetic ones and direct drive ones are too dear,thanks
My Daughter in law had one of those and only got a year out of it, it was well used by her though.
I've got one of those and it's surprisingly quiet. It isn't really possible to get enough resistance to do out of the seat climbing practice of it, though, but it's smooth enough.
You don't have to use a different rear wheel. Some people choose to, and some don't. I've always used the bike exactly as it is set up to ride on the road. I've never had a problem with lack of grip or excessive tyre wear, which are the usual reasons given for having a dedicated turbo rear wheel.Just starting to look for a turbo trainer myself and wonder if someone could answer a question. Do you have to fiddle about with the rear wheel on them all?
What I mean by that is do you have to change the rear wheel to a spare extra wheel when you use the trainer?
Are there any that you can just clip your bike as-is into and start pedalling?
