Turbo Trainers

[color=#cc3366]Can anyone recommend a good turbo trainer (not too expensive)? I think that one on a previous post with the video clip on Youtube is cool but unfortunately not a good idea for my rehab!!![/color]

    I've got an elite, which cost about £110. Beware though second hand ones might be worn, so sometimes going cheap does not help.

    Ebay tend to have last years models that have not been sold at a good price.

    Expensive, but worth the investment

    Hi Barbs

    I had knee surgery like you and got myself a Cycleops Fluid2 trainer from Evans .I agree with Jason's comments about second hand.Plus as the trainers are so heavy you are going to be paying at least £20 -£30 just for P&P if you buy on Ebay.

    I love the Cycleops - plus it came with a time trial DVD.

    How's the recovery going? Or are you still to have the op? Good luck!

    Hi there,

    I just received my new CycleOps Magneto from Wiggle (£99.99). Seems great value and is what they call a progressive trainer (the harder you pedal, the harder the resistance!) It was a doddle to set-up and apart from my girlfriend laughing as I unpacked it and leapt on the bike, it has been a great success. Like the Fluid2, the Magneto also has a training DVD included...

    Op is next Weds.

    Thanks for the advice guys - i was going to get a second hand one off ebay... maybe now i'll check out last season's ones off ebay and see if i can get any deals.

    I watched some friends competing in the London tri on Sunday, what a great event! Pity it was so hot without much warm weather before hand to acclimatise!!!

    I'm thinking of buying a turbo trainer, but listening to a jbst podcast about rollers got me thinking about them instead. I'm new to triathlon so would welcome any advice.
