So I’m about to buy a tacx neo 2t. My garage is detached from my house and has no electricity so as neo can be run under its own steam without being plugged in is a massive postive for me as I am able to use my phone as a WiFi hotspot with an iPad to run trainer road/Zwift.
Currently in my garage I have a dumb trainer set up with my old winter bike and Garmin vector 3 pedals. I like having a dedicated bike set up for training indoors. However I’m a bit worried about impact of leaving tacx neo in garage permanently as it is pretty cold in there and worried about condensation after I’ve trained in garage potentially knacking up the internal workings. Are my fears warranted? As just worried about spending so much on a trainer if I end up breaking it with where I store and use it.
My other option and alternative is to train in house but I would have to use my best bike ( I store it in house in my hallway) no way can I have another bike in house and I’m worried about sweat damaging this bike. I am a heavy sweaty even with decent fans. It’s full carbon and I’ll be honest my bike in garage I treat like crap with just a quick wipe down so would want to do everything possible to protect my best bike from bolts rusting etc. So any advice on this.
Finally I would potentially like to move between the two as although I’m aware neo is pretty quiet but wondering if wife would be able to watch TV in same room? If not and I was swapping between them both but one is a 11 speed and one is a 10 speed. I am guessing I’d have to change the cassette each time?
Thanks in advance
