What is proper trainer tension?
Check it out, after many years I'm on a trainer this winter. Tonight was my first night...eh..eh...boring.
Any how, I have an adjustable, magnetic-drag, rear mounting, folding style and I'm not sure how tight the roller should be against the wheel. Is there a rule of thumb as to how tight? I find it spins better with less tension and feels more like real riding, but could that be bad for the tire, I dunno?
What do you think, eh?
So boring in fact I followed up with some dumb-bell leg exersizes, squats, and extensions (if that's what they are called). What an improvement in the mirror.....I guess all that Kick-A$$ riding I did this past summer paid off..
I miss summer
