Does anyone use an aluminum frame on the trainer? I’m thinking about buying a spare bike to be my permanent trainer bike/travel bag bike/backup bike. I don’t want to spend a ton because it will be on the trainer 99% of the time, but will also be subject to airline handlers a few times a year. There are lots of good prices on aluminum bikes and they keep the weight down for the price compared to low end carbon frames. I’ve pretty much ruled Canyon out for various reasons.
I haven’t ridden an aluminum bike in at least 5 years and I’m worried it will really beat me up on the trainer.
Anyone have any experience here?
