I have a mag trainer with my steel bike mounted sitting in front of my flat screen. I'll go on you tube and find a video or a GCN video and ride to them. It's still boring as heck.Cyclops is your friend! My threshold for cold changed drastically after pedaling for 15 years in AZ. I used to avearge 150 miles a week in that consistent climate, but I absolutely can't handle cold anymore, so my Trek Carbon Postal and I spend crappy days inside. The Cycleops trainer is great, mine is over 20 years old and, although it isn't as good a workout as out on the road, it beats sitting on the couch watching the game. +1 on Performance gear, good bang for the buck and thanks for posting the ISM seat info, looks like a good idea to help keep the boys happy.
The 520 is what I initially looked at but then I noticed the price diff was not that different for a base unit. I found an 810 base unit for 259. I already have ANT+ sensors, and I don't use a heart monitor so that would be good for me. To be honest all the computer really needs to do for me is cadence, mph, and distance and be able to be downloaded. I guess I am kind of a computer geek and the other data is interesting.All this talk got me looking into a computer, what are you opinions on the edge 520?
No I've not tried ski gloves and at this point because of my annoyance with these gloves, I think I will just ride the trainer when the temps are below 40 or so. I say that but I will either end up with new gloves or some good liners.Have you tried snow ski gloves? they worked for me in the past on really cold days.
