How do I calibrate my turbo trainer?
Took a search for this on here, and couldn't find anything.
How do I calibrate my magnetic turbo trainer so its similar to riding on a road? I thought that if I road at 20mph on a flat road, then stopped - timed it, and set the resistance to do the same thing from the same speed, that that would do it - but it's nothing like it. It's only a tiny amount of resistance, and nothing like riding on the road.
It's just a cheap 'Tranzx' trainer, with a magnetic fly-wheel and a control on it to adjust from the handlebars (of a road bike). But I've got hold of lots of Spinerval DVDs - and am now just training in the garage with Troy helping me out. And I'd really like to get close to how it feels on the road.
Or am I on to plums?
Thanks in advance.
