Hi everyone

Does anyone know a company or could recommend someone who rents out turbo trainers that I could use with zwift or similar ?

I can’t really afford to buy one out right,with the gyms now closed and pending isolation I could really do with one to get me through the doldrums :(

If anyone can help taht would be awesome

Taaaaaa

Matt :)

    If you can afford it buy one, if renting is possible over a longish period it would probably cost you more.
    £200 maybe even less if you can sniff out a bargain (Decathlon?) will get you a Tacx T2240 wheel on smart trainer. I used to have one and never had any issues with it.

    Ebay is another option, or even Facebook marketplace (find one local for cheap then sell it on later)

    They're not available for online purchase - only from stores and there is zero stock of them in South of England. I know, I've tried to get one.
    You can fool some of the people all of the time. Concentrate on those people.

    Maybe Halfords, they have a few different brands.

    PM sent.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

  • I recently hired a direct drive turbo trainer from Turbo Trainer Hire- they deliver nationwide or you can collect from them (based Redhill, Surrey). Highly recommend hiring as a 'try before you buy' to see if turbo training is for you!
