Does anyone have experience with the LifeLine TT02 Fluid Trainer? I need advice on the set up, or potentially I have a faulty device. I use a road bike on the trainer, same bike that I ride on the road.
Essentially, I find there isn’t enough resistance. I can spin out on my maximum gear, something I could never do on the road. I can get to the big ring and smallest cog, up to 120+ rpm cadence. To get any kind of workout I’m having to work in the higher end of all available gears.
In terms of trainer set up, I am tightening the roller until it touches the tyre, then tightening further from there. I’ve been experimenting with different levels of tension against the tyre to see if that impacts performance. I started with just a quarter turn more and worked up from there. So far I’m applying up to 2 more full turns to the screw that applies roller tension to the wheel. I can’t make it any tighter by hand. I’m confident the tyre isn’t slipping which makes me wonder if the trainer is faulty.
Has anyone encountered similar issues using the LifeLine Fluid Trainer?
Thanks in advance
