I picked up a wind trainer last week which I'm enjoying a lot. It has been rainy and cold (by NOLA standards) and getting dark much earlier so I think this will help me keep moving until the weather improves. I've done a few 10 mile trainer rides on it so far but I'm reading about the advisability of using a special trainer tire. I only have one bike with one back wheel.
Do I need to get a trainer tire? If I don't, do I have to worry about my tire wearing out sooner or worse, tire failure ?
