[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]
Ebay tend to have last years models that have not been sold at a good price.
Expensive, but worth the investment
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!
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...
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!!!
