Trainer advice needed - Multiple Choice
I need some advice. First some quick background: Iím relatively new to cycling; my primary goal is increased fitness (170 pounds lost over the past 18 months, 40 more to go). I like to have a trainer for lousy weather days or times when I just donít have time to get outside but still want to log a few miles. I have a Kurt Kinetic fluid trainer with an inexpensive hybrid bike mounted in it. I never liked riding that bike outside, and (surprise) I donít like it any better sitting in my basement. Lastly, my wife is interested in a trainer too, so Iíd like to either have something that is easily adjustable or two separate setups.
So hereís the question. If you had $1,500 bucks to spend on a trainer would you:
A. Buy a second fluid trainer for $300 and an extra bike to go with it.
B. Buy a Computrainer
and worry about a bike to mount in it later.
C. Buy a CyleOps Pro 300PT
D. Save the money for a therapist because I clearly need professional help.
