Currently I’ve got a Tacx Flux 2 and I didn’t realise until the recent podcast how inaccurate it was in ERG mode. So knowing that I’m looking to replace it, I can return it to the place I bought it from but I’m not sure what to replace it with. I’d like to buy from the same place (I’ve got a 20% off voucher) so I’m a little limited to models, in terms of wheel off there’s the cycleops h2 and elite direto.
I was all ready to order the h2 when I thought about maybe going slightly backwards and getting a wheel on trainer. It would allow me to be a bit more flexible where I do my training and give me brownie points with the wife if my bike isn’t permantly in the dining room. Also with the money saved I could get myself some power pedals.
As all of my turbo riding is “training” the feel of the trainer doesn’t matter so much, but other than that I can’t see any big downsides to going wheel on + power pedals. Is there anything I’m missing out on (aside from tyre wear).
