I was a happy owner of an elite direto (version 2019) until last week when a strange sound came out of it with some friction perturbing my rides. Customer service told me how to fix the problem myself (just untighten the screw, put some glue and retighten everything). Easy to say but impossible to realize for me, the screw was too tighten and I broke it and the belt broke at the same time, never understood why. Problem is that the trainer is 2.5 years old so I have no warranty.
With this I am looking for a new trainer to replace my direto but I am not ready to go with elite again. 2.5 years is too short for a lifecycle for me.
Which home trainer do you recommend me? I am using an apple 4k TV. Specs of elite direto were fine for me. I am looking more for a most realistic road feel.
Thanks for your answers.
