Hey, my girlfriend is planning to get started with virtual power, and I’m looking to get her a good setup. and wondering what a good trainer would be.
I think my cycling ops fluid 2 would be terrible, because I’ve noticed not only is the resistance different before/after warming up, but also changes during the workout from beginning to end of intervals, and in the rest cycle. So until she commits to a real power meter. She’ll need something that’ll give her consistent readings (given same tire pressure and trainer tension on the wheel, etc)
I’m guessing a mag or wind trainer is my solution, and wondering if anyone has had great/terrible experiences with any models, especially while using virtual power.
I’m not too concerned about price, there’s a lot of workout equipment on Craigslist and eBay for cheap from all our fallen comrades that realized fitness isn’t for them. Anything that retails for under $500 (so probably not going to start her with a smart trainer)
