I've had my Magneto TT for about a month but find it difficult to know how tight to set the resistance wheel.
I did 50 mins the other day and after finishing, the bits of dirt I thought had been falling off the pike/pedals/shoes, turned out to be rubber off the rear tyre.
The instructiuon manual advises to tighten the resistance wheel until it touches the tyre, then turn the tightening knob 2 or 2.5 turns. This seems far too tight - can anyone else with a Magneto offer any guidance - thanks.
PS now my tyre has a lot less rubber - is it more likely tto burst?
If it's not slipping during normal use then it's tight enough - also I'd keep the tyre pressures pretty high.
I do one long-ish ride per week on the road, but heading for IM next year, I wanted to get into a routine of doing high cadence rides at home as well. I live in London so spend most short rides dodging buses or at traffic lights.
50 mins - taking it up a gear every 5 mins, so by the end I was quite sweaty. It helped me avoid Strictly Come Dancing in the other room though.
