Tacx T-1820 anyone got one?

by Super Domestique   November 28, 2012  

Given the miserable weather I am slowly coming round to the idea of a turbo trainer.

I don't want to spend loads as I prefer to be out than indoors but at little over 70 quid at Merlin, is this worth the money?

Any owner experiences?

Hi Super Domestique,

I would advice you to go first to Cadence Performance in Crystal Palace (South London) to try one up there. And then you choose what to do.

Cadence Cycling Performance Centre - South London's best cycling community.

Hi,

Well, Cadence use Genius Multiplayer, the latest generation of turbo trainer from Tacx.

The Genius has a wireless motor brake with a computer-driven flywheel that generates high power at low speeds. This makes climbing of hills and mountains even more realistic.

I attach photos so you can see.

As i say, it is worth trying to see at least how it feels to use one.
