Thinking of getting a turbo trainer to keep fitness this winter. Lost all riding interest last winter when everything came a mudfest.
I have never had a TT before, but I am guessing that it is quite boring, and that you don't want to do more than an hour a time on the bike. For me my main motivation is likely to be keeping an eye the various performance data - time, heart rate, cadence, speed and power plus of course watching my favourite soaps!
Was thinking of getting one of the more expensive TT's with a built in computer such as a Tacx Flow. Then it it occurred to me that I should be able measure all this data on my Garmin - with the exception of power - can't afford a power meter. Plus the Tacx data does not seem to be downloadable.
So why buy a more expensive TT?
Anybody got any experience or wisdom?
