|Hello once again...
Seems like i post a lot of messages everyday.
anyhow, wife, not really a rider, but an onwer of a low leval mt bike asked for an indoor trainer for x mas! This was the last thing I thought she would ask for. She thinks it would be "nice" to ride together inside this winter.
I thought this was a great idea. i get a xmas present out of the way by getting what she asked for AND I kinda get a new toy.
SO, do the rim driven trainers wear down the rims? And which models seem to work the best?

|I'm confused about what you describe as a "rim driven trainer." Every trainer I see advertised is driven by the tire, not the rim. Am I just out of touch on this product type? Is there actually a trainer that somehow clamps a drive wheel on the rim and doesn't touch the tire? This seems a flawed concept.|

|OK, but it still seems like a poor concept (nm)||Kerry|

|if you have an old back wheel, could even buy a cheap wheel. it would save the cost of new tyres every few months|| |
