I have a basic turbo trainer with garmin sensors and I’m kind of outgrowing it (power tops out at about 400 to 500w so I can’t sprint on it, I get filtered out in Zwiftpower races, etc).
I’m a bit nervous spending $900 or so for a direct drive trainer when that seems more than I need or can afford at this point. Was wondering if anyone found a decent smart trainer in the 200 to 300 dollar range that might be a good stepping stone for me? I’m in the US so would love a seller from there to help cover any potential warranty issues. I found some good prices in Europe but was told the warranty wouldn’t be honored.
