I hate turbo trainers
They promise so much...
But you sweat, you make a sound like Concorde taking off and the claim that the whatever design feature that makes it 'just like riding on the road' is a load of b*****ks
However; my old one is knackered...
Some seem to promise that they will tell you how many watts you produce? So you can find out how many watts you are producing at any specific heart rate. I am thinking that more watts at any given heart rate means your training is working!
However when you read on they are not accurate so are useless. I have also noticed that some turbos say 'compatible' so you could work out the watts but you need more expensive tech which you cannot calibrate.
The question is; do I stick with a basic one with a decent flywheel or do I go for one with output in watts? The point of having the output (and other electronic aids) is to make the activity more interesting?
The trainer that looks most interesting to me is the Lemond system with a fan? No watts but looks like a good system to me, anyone got one?
