OK, a couple of years ago I bought a roadie just for my trainer. That is my 3rd bike. But, I have been riding the roadie during the years as my "utility road bike" and love riding it outside. I also have a Lemond and a mtn bike.
So, I am thinking of getting another bike for my trainer "permanently" in the basement. I was considering a mtn bike, and wonder if anyone is using a mtn bike (with slicks) on a trainer and any reactions. I have a mag trainer. I.e, like this bike.
Used mtn bikes tend to be a lot cheaper than roadies, have trigger or grip shifting, and I would also appreciate more of an upright position, as, at age 66, things are getting a bit stiff.
Or, how about a hybrid?
