- Quiet turbo trainer??
I don’t fancy rollers as I plan to use with trainer road or sufferfest. Quieter than the cyclops mag is a must, I accept it won’t be silent but I’ll be training at night when the toddler is in bed so something that sounds like a jet plane taking off if a no no. Are the fluid ones any better?Posted 6 months ago
In true STW style I think I may have just changed the scope. Having had a quick google I like the idea of one of the cheaper smart trainers and uploading gpx routes to it.
Thoughts / advice?

Elite smart trainers are well-respected and have possibly the most accurate power meter. Tacx were the first silent trainers, Wahoo the most robust road feel (flywheel weight). They have now converged on features and reliability. No issues with Elite, but I don’t think they are silent.
If I was spending again, I’d buy the new Wahoo KICKR Core. I’d also keep looking on their web shop for reconditioned versions (and hope). That’s where I bought my 2016 version and it’s been great (another 2 hr session tomorrow morning planned). From 2016 they came with a handle. This is a VERY GOOD THING, as they are all pretty heavy and moving them about is a pain.Posted 6 months agoFunkyDuncMember
Had one for years and used when Jnr FD asleep. Much quieter than others I’ve used. Gets very good reviews and feels ‘realistic’ in use.Posted 6 months ago
Thanks for the input everyone. I think I’m sold on the smart trainers, I really like the idea of uploading a gpx and it increasing resistance with elevation. Due to budget the noise is probably less of an issue now 🙄. I’m going to have to figure out the setup once I know how it works but I assume it’ll be the cheaper elite or Tacx T2240.Posted 6 months ago
