After a new turbo, choice of the following
Tacx flow

Elite supercrono forte

Had a flow before so are the other 2any better

    I have an elite and can not fault it.

    Also not too noisy which is a plus for me living in a flat!!
    2015 Specialized S-Works Tarmac - Ultegra Di2 (7.0kg)
    Kinesis Aithein - Ultegra mechanical (7.3kg)
    Kinesis Maxlight Xc130 - xt/ xtr (11.3kg)

    spin to win!

    I have a Tacx Flow and am happy with it - If I was replacing mine, I'd be looking at the Lemond trainer which does away with the rear wheel.

    Cycleops Jet Fluid Pro or Fluid2. Do you have a power meter? If not spend your money on a cheap wired PowerTap and a cheaper turbo.

    I wouldn't believe the power 'measurement' on an Elite turbo having owned a Supercrono fluid which is just a joke when it comes to the consistency and repeatability of the displayed power.
    More problems but still living....
