Hi, newb here, I appreciate this is sort of a generic forum question but I’m after some advice before pulling the trigger on a purchase and signing up to a Zwift subscription.
I currently have a Tacx Satori which I don’t really use a lot, the drag from the rear wheel is annoying and nothing like real cycling (I mountain bike two or three times a week).
I was looking at buying a smart exercise bike but then I realised I could just sell my Satori and get a better turbo trainer, possibly a direct drive one with the hope they are much more realistic.
Reading up there’s lots to choose from, a cheaper Elite Muin but one review said it doesn’t do inclines something on those lines.
I guess that’s my question, what trainer will allow me to fully appreciate the Zwift experience without breaking the bank and feel like I’m pedalling through sludge lol.
The Tacx Neo is on a very small shortlist at the moment along with the Elite Muin but I’m a bit confused which way I should go.
Budget would be under £500, less if possible
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
