Review in Triathlon Magazine

Mr McGarry Have been looking to buy a smart trainer for several months and after a bit of research plumped for the Fuego. Had considered the Wahoo Kickr but at £350 more couldn't justify the additional expense for what appeared to be a similar spec. Easy to set up after I'd watched a couple of the YouTube videos. I have an 8 speed road bike set up on it which works ok with the provided spacer. One piece of advice if you buy a new cassette for it then change the chain on the bike you are going to use. I tried a new cassette with my old stretched chain and it made a horrible noise so I put the old cassette that was used to the chain on and it was fine . Laptop Bluetooth found the trainer in a couple of seconds and paired up. I've done a few rides on Zwift and am impressed with the realism of the hills and how quickly the turbo reacts to them. All in all I'm happy with my purchase and hope it lasts the distance so that I can have years of indoor training over the winter months.
