Just a question i was hoping somone could answer. Decided to spend some quality time with my trainer last night instead of going out on the road. I have noticed this before, but it seems that on the trainer ( Minoura 850 rim drive) the work out is harder than when riding on the road.
By this i mean that the it seems i have to work a lot harder with my legs to hit a target heart rate that i have set fior the work out ( nothing high, only 150 bpm) that on the road i could cruise around and achieve no worries at all.
does anyone know why this is? is it a trait of rim drive trainers vs a normal trainer?
