Hi i have recently bought a turbo trainer for my disc brake 10 speed 700x 35c bicycle. The shop told me that i am better off getting a second hand wheel to have my trainer tire on so that i wont have to keep changing tires which seem reasonable enough. But as it is a spare wheel i dont want to spend any more than i have to (trainer was expensive enough haha) i have 2 questions.does it have to be a disc brake wheel i put on? As the turbo tells me not to use the brakes as it could brake it and does it need to be a 10speed wheel as well? Seems like if it is my pockets gonna get a lot smaller ha help appreciated
