First post and a trainer question...

Hello all!

I'm new here and have a question.

I just recentaly purchased a Blackburn Fluid Trainer for my Trek 750.

Is there any way to keep track of distance and speed since the front tire is not rotating and that is where the odo/spedo is monitored? I just figure there has to be a way to keep track for logging workouts. Is there something out there for the back wheel???

Thanks in advance for your help.

I hope I'm not pointing out the obvious, but is there anything keeping you from mounting your computer sensors on the rear wheel? On my computer, the cable is long enough to reach while still mounting the display on the handlebars.

Some cyclocomputers are supposed to be set up with the sensor on the rear wheel.
Stop by your LBS and look at the different models.
