I do quite fancy one of those things where you race on the TV against others on your turbo. I know they are pointless and a lot of money but I would be interested to know which ones are good/bad/recommended, all the same! You never know. I do find visual stimulation on the turbo is the best distraction and I reckon it might be fun? EG is there a wireless thing that links to your Garmin via a laptop or whatever?
I've seen a couple of those as well; but they fit firmly into the 'fancy pants' category of turbos I think. I can only imagine what KK would think of them.
Now I'm just going through that impatient stage of saving up a bit of cashola for the buy. I figure that while I'm still boshing out 3/4 hour rides, staying on the road is not too much of a problem, since waking up at 6am means I still get quality time with Mrs AD and A-herself. Once I start getting above those length rides though, and want to pair them up with brick runs, its much harder to tell the Mrs that I wont be in until 2pm. So - big tick for turbos + Star Wars for me.
