How do people rate the Tacx Sirius turbo trainer? Looking to buy myself a turbo trainer to use over winter when the weather is not to good and wondered what ones people tend to use?

    There is an article in this month's Cycling Plus that rates loads of turbo's. Probably worth a couple of quid on the mag before you dive in.

    The Sirius is just fine. I have one (plus a Flow converted to iMagic) and it's well made and quiet in use.

    If I had a criticism it would be that the resistance control requires a fair bit of force to move the lever, so it is tricky to flick quickly to change the level. This may be similar on other turbos with mechanical resistance control - I don't know as the Sirius is the only non-electrical turbo I have tried.
