I have a CycleOps Power Trainer with an extra trainer tire that I put on my wheel before doing indoor rides. The extra time to change the tire back and forth is getting tedious- so I want to buy a cheep wheel and set it up just for my trainer. Then I can just swap wheels.
It’s a cross bike, but I have it setup with road tires and ride it mostly on the trainer, in Saturday morning group rides and a few tris a year.
The current cassette is this Shimano 10 speed cassette. SHIMANO CS-5600 10 Speed Cassette (Silver) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007Y5HD6S/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_S2TjCbJP80H1M
I live in Florida so the hearing while not ideal doesn’t ever seem to hold me back.
The cassette is old and the chain is old.
A few questions:
- should I get a new chain and cassette for my outdoor wheel and then put the old cassette on my to be purchased indoor wheel?
- should I get two new cassettes? Again I wouldn’t do this for gearing only if a better cassette would make me faster.
- is a wheel like this ok for indoor riding? Something cheaper? Sta-Tru Silver Shimano 2200 8-9-10 Speed Cassette Hub Rear Wheel (700X20) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004YJ2KWE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_4.TjCbQADS0P4
