Hello, I was looking for some feedback and suggestions from the TR family.
I am currently doing my indoor training on a dumb trainer, and an older Cannondale (CAAD3 I think R900).
My outdoor bike is a 2015 (I think) Cervelo S3.
My thought was to preserve my nicer bike.
I ride indoors about 3-4 times a week and outdoors once a week, on the weekends, from mide March to end of Sept.
I thought it would be more convenient as I didn’t need to switch out the rear tire on the S3 to ride indoors and then also if I had not recently washed my S3 I would reduce the wear and tear by not riding on a dirty bike.
I have not had any fit issues although I am sure the geometry is not the exact same.
I was thinking about putting a bit of money into the cannondale to make the bikes more similar in fit (e.g. new stem, bars, and I will need an adapter as the head tube is more narrow I think).
However, I also started to think this may just be wasting my money and instead use my Cervelo for both in and out-doors (using a second rear wheel with a trainer tire on it).
Not sure this matters but my hope is within a year to get a smart trainer.
Thank you for any feedback, suggestions, things to consider, pros and cons of each arrangement.
