The Lemond Revolution is a high-quality indoor trainer with a great ride feel and it's built to cope with long hours of training. It isn't light or quiet, but I'll trade those two for the ride sensation and enough stability to cope with everything up to a full-on sprint.
I'm planning to buy one to help keep me going during wet weeks like this one (and the winter). I personally prefer the freedom of rollers but think a lack of resistance might not help my already poor climbing ability.
Any suggestions on which one should I go for? Any specific models to suggest?
I have recently gotten myself a set of rollers. I prefer the challenge and need to stay focused that turbos don't have. They are great fun.
The thing is I amn't totally sure what to do on them to best increase fitness.
Kurt Kinetic's Road Machine might be pricey but it’s ultra-sturdy and the consistency of the resistance allows you to get a good power measurement if you buy the compatible computer too.
Before you can get going you need to attach the resistance unit to the trainer frame. You don’t get printed instructions but you can’t really go wrong here – and if you really can’t work it out, just watch the DVD included or go online. It takes five minutes and you only need to do it once.
