I just dropped $170 on this trainer. I'd only been planning on using it for 40 hours this winter (since it's not the cold but the lack of daylight that's keeping me off the roads).
Am I stupid to use my beloved Trek 2000 on a trainer? I've been told that using bikes experience excessive wear when used on trainers, but my wallet is not quite ready to go out and buy a whole new steel frame just for use on my trainer.
For the amount of time that I'll be spending on this trainer, how much and what type of wear will my bike really experience?
