that's reasonably priced
I'm not after a fancy gadget one that gets hooked up to pc's, but one that's quiet and doesn't wake up the house?
Any makes/brands I should look at?
I've got this one and it works for me.
I bought my Tac x i Magic from http://www.bike24.net/ which was not only a good price, but free delivery from Germany. Great service too.
(They sell cheaper, non singing/dancing turbos too)
Mister W does the Tacx Sirius need putting together?
KK, it says yours comes ready done, is that right? Plus how do you find the noise level?
I'm concerned about the noise as I'll most likely be doing this when the kids are fast alseep!
It comes all ready as far as I can remember. I use mine in the living room on an old rubber mat, it's not too noisy at all and doesn't disturb the kids. I have to set up and put away the turbo for every session and it's easy really, takes me 5 mins now. I also bought a riser block (is that the right term?) for the front wheel. Perfect!
This is the block I've got
I bought both from Wiggle and they came the next day!
TR no, it's not for a MTB.
I like your improvisation there Garr. Had to laugh as my yellow pages has been seriously thumbed through and notes written all over the solicitors pages. BTW the one today is definitely the right one, he won't be intimidated and gave straight advice.
Simulates steering KK! ;o)
My Yellow Pages gets used for nothing, so at least this way it's not wasted!
Glad to hear that AFL. Remember, no holds barred. If you want the best for your boys, take everything you can.
I have the noisiest turbo on the globe - when I used it in my old flat I used to put a note on the door to tell people that I would be stopping at a certain time! It was proper noise polution. Now I live in the country I can do what I want!!
Thanks to ever put up the German website - I'm going to get the lights that they are advertising for Christmas from my folks. Last year they thought they bought me a very expensive shirt - re-cycled into bike kit. Mum still asks why I never wear it! Although I think she has her suspicions....
