get a quiet smooth one, some good CDs to, riding the trainer compared to MTBing sucks but it is a necessary evil sometimes and will make the MTB rides longer and stronger.mb3designs said:I am wanting to buy a indoor trainer with a handlebar mounted tension adjuster. What is the best one I can purchase for around $150.
I had the Minoura Rim for about a year and this past winter I purchased a Fluid that uses tire, I am much happier with the tire model. With the rim you can't stand and hammer, alot more resistance offered on the tire models as well.. You can even let a little air out of the tire to increase the resistance some more.mb3designs said:Which type is better rim or tire? Price Point has Minoura Magturbo 850's with remotes for $129.98 (tire) and $169.98 (rim). Is this similar to the Hypermag?
if the link worksmb3designs said:I have never used a trainer before, so I don't really know what is good and what is bad. I guess I should have stated that when I posted the thread. Normally during the winter I have time to ride on the weekdays, but since I am going back to school now a trainer is a "necessary evil." I would be willing to spend as much as $200 I guess, but that would be the max amount of cash I could drop.I am not sure which kind to buy, any suggestions?
