Any smart trainers for sale
« on: 17, August, 2021, 10:27:06 AM »
Just wondering if anyone out there is selling a smart trainer.

Don't need anything too fancy but something that will work well with zwift etc.

Thanks
Niamh

I got this off RobH last year and never used it, you can have the same deal if you're interested Niamh.

I've just upgraded my Smart Trainer so I have my old one for sale. It's a Tacx Vortex Tour De France Version. Disclaimer, this is almost 5 years old. Iíve done +10 thousand km on Zwift on this, but Itís still plugging away. Iíve also glued this trainer (not as bad as it sounds, itís just a hack for making it quieter as it gets old https://youtu.be/RVB6qMHmFHQ). Iíve no reason to believe this wonít last another 5 years, but I want to price this so somebody can get a bargin and not have to worry about it being pretty old. I really donít want to put this in the attic with imminent lockdown
I live in Greystones, so youíd need to pickup from there.
Price: 100 Euro. Iíll also include the spare road wheel I have with a newish turbo trainer tyre on it. I paid 30 euro for the tyre and probably a bit more for the wheel, so youíre paying very little for the Turbo. This means you can whip the road bike on the turbo and swap the wheel (youíll need a spare cassette for the wheel) Youíll also need a Smart Trainer dongle to connect this to your computer, that isnít provided.
I can send pictures by whatsapp if you want to see them. The forum is always a big hassle to upload images.
