Trainer question... again.castrello

Hello everyone...

Have a Tacx trainer (1560 swing) and my rear tire is slipping as soon as I add the recistance (like on the 4th position and higher). Why is that? I have enough air in the tire, but can the rubber compund be the answer...? I use a really bad tire (not bas as in worn, but bad as in "wont to get rid of it so that´s why I use it on the trainer"), a IRC paperlite.

Try deflating the tire to half the recommended pressure so that you have more surface contact area with the flywheel barrel. It worked for me!
