  • Well I'm using a JetBlack Fluid turbo £149 at present, it does the trick, an hour every day, gets me sweating like a pig alright, more than happy with it, more so than the geezer using it.

  • I read you should only use an old bike on a turbo trainer (serious cyclists) as it damages the bike overtime, so be careful.

    Hi

    I see u have a jet black fluid. What are your thoughts on it? Is it the only one you have had?

    Thanks

  • matterai, yes it's the only turbo I've owned the good thing is as its a progressive trainer it automatically adjusts the resistance when you change gears or increase speed, so no need for cable etc. It says it is super quite and smooth, as for the smooth I can agree with and it is possible very quite but seeing as I have it in my shed on a wooden floor it is a bit noisy reverberating through the wood, on a concrete floor I think it would be quite.
