Looking to upgrade to a wheel-off smart trainer from the simplicity of a Kinetic Fluid Trainer, and wanted to get opinions from those who are sharing a single smart trainer with another rider, as I will be doing with mine.
Are there certain smart trainers better for those of us who would switch bikes and riders frequently?
Both bikes we typically use will have 10 speed 11-28 cassettes, and I intend to put the same on the trainer, so not expecting issues there, and both bikes use QR skewers. The frames are very different in size, though I haven’t figured that that would be a complicating factor.
Am concerned with:
- Calibration - would prefer not to do this often, and not each time we switch bikes (which can be quite frequent in winter)
- Ease of transfer - easy mounting and dismounting, especially for her
- Anything else that might require additional effort, work, set up changes between bikes based on the trainer’s mechanics or technology.
