Turbo training in an apartment????

Does anyone have experience of using a turbo trainer in a flat/ apartment?

Does it make to much noise or vibration for the people below etc?

    get the queitest triainer you can find.

    plce it on an absorbing mat like an old spnge camp/yoga mat.

    make sure your neighbours dont work shifts or adjust work outs accordingly


    find a local triathlon club, bike club that do trubo sessions at local halls etc.

    i used to train in th kitchen and blame the washing machine once when questioned about the noise.

    is there anyone who does it and gets away without being bothered by anyone?

    I do it, I'm on the top floor and I have wooden flooring... I made sure I got the quietest trainer which was a Cycleops Fluid 2, I use a mat and I don't do training at silly o'clock. Absolutely no probs so far.
