The bike is hung with shimano 10 speeds, but a block is not essential (due for replacement?)
I have old tyres and tubes.
Blisters - I use the same wheel and tyre as I use outside.
I have just bought one of these and a £17 tiagra cassette from Chain reaction. May have been a waste of money but someone told me they'd melted their non turbo tyre on a turbo hence specific tyre and wheel.
i just use an old tyre - works fine and saves you some money
I've got a couple of spare tyres, and patched up tubes. The cassette can be the one I'm surrently using (new one for the road bike). The wheel is a bit of a challenge.
I've got a front wheel going spare!!
Blisters - have you tried your existing wheel/tyre on your turbo yet (I'm assuming its new to you) ? I have a cheapish Vittoria Rubino tyre on my wheel and the turbo doesnt damage it. I use the same wheel and tyre outside as on the turbo and even leave the turbo skewer on the bike all the time, so it ready to turbo or ride outside immediately.
