TURBO TRAINERS

Hey guys, I am planning on buying a turbo trainer for the winter sessions. I started doing my research and I feel dizzy already with the amount of TT available.

I would like a recommendation from one (or more) fellow triathletes.

The most important thing is noise reduction, and I am not looking to spend a fortune on high tech gadgets. I want a good, sturdy TT that will help me train and won't get me kicked out of the house.

I can go as high as GBP 150, but if there is one for GBP 80 that does exactly the same... why pay the difference?



Any suggestions?



thanks,



Fredrick

    is the turbo trainer I use. I looked and looked and looked at all the models on the Internet and then went into my local bike shop (Hackney, London) and this was the only model they had. They let me set it up with one of their Specialized Allezs and try it out, and it seemed just fine to me. Been using it now for 1.5 years and steadily improving my cycling times all the while. Not fancy, not top-of-the-line, but does the job for me. £89.99 is what they say it costs.
  • I just recently bought a Tacx softgel Sirris here: http://www.wiggle.co.uk/ProductDetail.aspx?Cat=cycle&ProdID=5360020040&N=Tacx%20Sirius%20Soft%20Gel%20Folding%20Magnetic%20T1435%20Trainer

    I bought this one because i really wanted the cycleops one and after posting on this forum and hearing it was the best but then i read a review in 220 saying that the tacx was just as good but cheaper.

    There we go :)

    I've had a Cycleops Fluid 2 for nearly a year & it's great. Very quiet too.
