    imho if you *really* are going to use the turbo a lot, consider getting a kurt road machine (heavy flywheel for great road feel), but it's more than 200 quid unless you can find a used one

    on the other hand, unless you *really* are going to use the turbo a lot, look for a used cycleops fluid turbo on ebay, there are plenty, presumably many are from people who found they just don't want to use the turbo so much

    for on-turbo entertainment, the sufferfest videos are quite good, there're several to choose from

    my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    Its worth a look on Evans Cycles if you're going to buy in the next 3 days. Using code "MM15" will get you 15% off the listed price.
