Been looking at turbos recently, but even ignoring issues of time, money and space (in our one-bed with 11 bikes) I fear we wouldn't stay on good terms with nextdoor for very long... :shock: :lol:

I had a fan turbo trainer years ago and it was really loud. Couldn't listen to music etc. But, the mag one I have now is really quiet. Used with a thin slick tyre is near enough silent. Definitely worth a look. Can't help you with space though, haha.

Put a quick ride in at Whinlatter this morning to see how the training is paying off (and take the Cinder Cone on first ride). Rode half the Blue loop to warm up and then hammered the North Loop. Got the North loop done in 45 mins. Well pleased. Just need to shift a few more pounds (aiming to loose another 8lbs and get to 11st) and keep racking the miles in.

Entered Half Enduro :)

Should have the Sintesi built for this, rim brakes and low travel suspension make for pain at whinlatter.

The Sintesti has disks and Judy 4's
