It's this months cycling plus that has an extensive review of turbo trainers.
what website dude did you find that for 250 cant find it for less than 320 tacx flow
dude like i give a fxxx if ya got nothing to say on question i asked why try and be funny shame there are alot of people on this site that like to waste time on ripping into people that make mistakes or are not so clued up on road biking
I had a Tacx Sirius and upgraded to a Satori. The Satori is miles better.
Off the back of the C+ reviews I got an Elite Chrono Power Fluid Elastogel (snappy name eh?).
Good points are:
Easy to set up.
Fluid resistance means you increase resistance by pedalling faster/changing gear, so no cable operated adjustment
Increase in resistance feels quite smooth.
Althought sturdy, the arms which hold the flywheel are composite not metal, so it doesn't feel as solid as my old Tacx Swing
I use a powermeter and have noticed that the turbo 'drifts' over the course of a workout. That is, if I start off at 80rpm in a certain gear I'll be producing say 200 watts. Once the turbo is warmed up, the same rpm and gear will require 220watts. Not sure if this is unique to the Elite or if it affects all turbos.
The skewer is a bit 'industrial'
Overall though, it's a decent trainer. I wouldn't rate it as highly as C+, but wuld give it 8/10
