Just picked up a Tacx Satori turbo trainer which I plan to use in the conservatory at home. I understand you can cut the noise down by using some kind of mat.

Does everyone pony up for one of the proper turbo mats (typical price £40-60) or are there other things you can use that get you most of the sound-deadening benefit without the cash outlay for a bit rubber?!
