New Cycle Turbo Trainer

I got it from halfords because it was on offer for £90, about £100 would be ok. Solid piece of kit, though it took me a while to get used to riding on it. You have to prop up the front wheel to get to a comfortable riding position, currently phone book, yellow pages and a readers digest diy manual high! There are plastic blocks available to buy that raise and steady your front wheel, I will have to invest I think. Its pretty quiet too, you can watch tv while your on it and only have to turn volume up slightly, my washing machine makes much more noise! (One of Steves mates owns a trainer that has a fan instead of magnets, he said its like having a helicopter in your house!) I like the 5 levels of resistance too, gives you something to go at, combined with the combination of your own gears. Really easy to set up and use. Dont apply your brakes whilst your riding, or you can damage the roller and your tyre. It makes you clean your bike more often, if your bringing it inside the house, which isnt a bad thing either!
