I've had a turbo trainer for about a year now and have never set it up yet. Due to an ongoing cold, I want to use this to train lightly until my chest clears up and in a slightly warmer environment (garage).
Anyway, I have an old ht frame and enough parts to set this up as a dedicated training bike.
So my question is, do a need gearing or can I set it up as a fixie and use the turbo resistance to suit intensity? Obviously geared would be better, but would non-geared be ok to get me away?
