Turbo trainers.

Hi.
Ive recently broke my wrist and was thinking of buying a turbo trainer.I was wondering if I will be able to hook it upto a maxle back end and will my dh tyres roll on the rollers or will they vibrate because of the nobbles.

Any info youve got please.

    My turbo trainer clamps to the wheel, so it doesn't matter what tires I have BUT you want to get yourself a fan, maybe two. It's hot as hell without the wind to cool you down!

  • I used a turbo trainer over the winter, I started off using my fairly nobbly mtb tyres, it worked to some extent but made a lot of noise and wasn't doing the tyres or the trainer any good so I purchased a turbo trainer tyre and it improved it 100%, much quieter and smoother.

    Continental Tyre

    Tacx Tyre

    I personally have the tacx tyre but that was only because no where had the cheaper continental tyre when i was ordering.
