Recently taken up Zwift as a way to keep fit and thoroughly enjoying it so far. Having ridden nearly 400km over the last couple of weeks I am now debating upgrading my current turbo trainer. I am currently using an old CycleOps mag trainer which whilst it does the job, doesn’t give me a variable resistance and has a nice strong vibration with it that I’m sure isn’t doing my arms any good!
I had a look around at mid-range turbo trainers and from that I can see, for something under £250 I’m probably looking at the Tacx Bushido or Vortex.
The reviews on both seem pretty good from people that actually own them but middle of the road from professional reviewers. Is this because they aren’t (understandably) as good as the top end trainers the professionals are using or are they just not that good in general?
Has anyone got either and uses it on regular basis with Zwift that would be able to give any advice?
