Smart trainer in freezing temperatures

Hi everyone, I'm looking to get my first smart trainer. However the only available space I have is out in the garage. I live in northern Maine so during the winter months it will be below freezing and even sub zero. I plan for n using some sort of space heater to warm the area slightly when in use. Will these temperatures have any ill effects on the trainer both during use and when not in use?
That could kill the electronics
The Tacx Neo just weighs a tonne, literally.
It must be the most heaviest object I own and not easy to carry around.
*Apparently its 22Kg. But in my opinion it feels heavier to carry around.
I carried mine, in the box, back from Evans to work. Just under a mile. I didn't then use it for days because my body was utterly done in.
Facebook? No. Just say no.
Personally I'd be going to the websites for the machines you are interested in and see what temp range they can cope with.
Wow. I wouldn't even contemplate that! Especially not in the box! I carried mine from the bike shop doorway into the carpark and that was far enough. You must be some sort of Schwarzenegger-esque to have pulled that off. I would have failed and called a taxi...
The only heavier items I own are probably my motorbike and washing machine.
I would say the same. Always need a fan in the garage and wouldn't consider the need for a heater. Always layer up with clothing and make sure it is easy to remove through the session.
