So… Ye olde bkool pro had finally bitten the dust. It has succumbed after ~25k virtual Km, no idea how many virtual vertical m or watts.
But it is toast. Looks like I’ve literally burnt out the guts.
So… I need a new trainer. I have my old mtb on there with trainer tyres. So I could use a wheel on model, but I’d like to upgrade to something that doesn’t have me shredding mountains of rubber every ride.
The mtb has an 8 speed cassette.
What trainers are you using, do you like them? Are they reliable, responsive? How has it stood the test of time? Noise? What is the vendor support like? How easy would it be to adjust for multiple riders?(My wife also suffers).
I’m doing up to 400Km / week, Max around 14 hours.
I found bkool support terrible, which is one of the reasons I ceased my subscription, and won’t look at their trainers (I’m aware they sold the trainer business).
Bkool was noisy, I expect most on the market today should be much quieter.
I’d rather pay a bit more and get something a bit better - we use it a lot, I want it to work well and be good for a long time, with a lot of hard hours in there.
I’m in Australia if that makes a difference for models etc.
