People what's the word on wind trainers?. I have a Trek 5200 and would like to some training in doors when the weather is bad. Would just like to get a good workout, have heard that Blackburn make a good model. Any other recommendations where you can get them and price also.

Thanks

I have a Cateye, the one wind trainer they make I think. I like the base, it's pretty stable, but I don't like the wheel retention that much...

Loud, yes, but it's not like it's quiet when your riding on the road.

Lots of resistance though, and my legs gte tired VERY quickly - my best efforts at pace (~22mph) can only last maybe 30-40 mins on the trainer.

However, I would much perfer rollers at this stage, after the trainer.
