So here's a question, and I am pretty sure I already know the answer but thought I'd get a thread going anyway, is there anything for us big fellas to watch out for when shopping for trainers? I'm going to be in the market for one (as I suspect are many others) here in the coming months, and figured I'd throw this out there before there. Seems fluid trainers are generally preferred over mag, etc etc. But.. is there anything those of us with LBS (Large Bottom Syndrome) need to watch out for?
Second question, again I think I know the answer, but are there any special considerations for a bicycle that will (essentially) live on the trainer? I'm guessing the ever-troublesome area for some of us - wheels - will no longer really be a consideration, as on a trainer wheels won't be subject to much (if any) shock or weight. Frames, yeah I would think that even if it's going to live on a trainer, a CF frame will still not be the best plan for a super-clyde.
Personally, I was looking at this.. *holds breath and looks around for road cycling members..*:
I had thought about getting a Trek 1000 because, well, I like the paint job! But then I realized... if it's not going outside...... you get the idea . For the price of the Trek, I can have a bike AND a trainer.. so that's a win-win kind of thing.
