    Hello;

    Anyone with a good wind trainer program or idea shout out. It's cold and dark here and I get my computer face time training on a cycle pro. No hills though. Just put it in 8th and crank.

    Peace,

    I have a Mag trainer, and some software that I never got working. Anyone interested in giving it a try?

    [edit] the software, not my trainer

    Expound a little

    Tell me more, and most importantly, what does it cost?

    I got the software and sensor to evaluate. You hook the sensors up to your trainer, and race on your PC. I'll have to make sure that I can transfer the license to someone. Obviously, you'd need to provide a bit of feedback.

    I've got a computrainer program. It sucks. Lousy graphics and no hills. OTOH, it was cheap and worked with either of my plain trainers. Personally, I'd rather do a training video. I think I even got one a few years ago, if I can just find it...

    I think mine was RacerMate. It was a cheap program. That was both the good point and the bad. Ii included a pickup for the rear wheel, and I could use any old mag/fluid/etc trainer.
