It used to be the case that indoor trainers were expensive and noisy affairs that only the truly dedicated racing nutjob would entertain having in their home. Things have changed. Trainers are sleeker, quieter and just plain better. Indoor trainers are not just the preserve of hardcore racers any more. Any cyclist can benefit from the structured training and stats they trainers can offer. A simple set of rollers may be all that you're looking for, to keep you warmed up at an event or to help you recover back into fitness and form after an extended period off the bike. At the other end of the spextrum there are all-singing all-dancing turbo trainers that can connect to your various devices - heart rate monitor, power meter, smartphone, PC, tablet etc - to give you access to a previously unhead of level of stats and analysis. You can even hook up to one of several virtual reality racing simulators and race people from all around the world from the comfort of your own home. Well, we say comfort... once the red mist descends you'll be foaming at the mouth.
