Got my new trainer in Friday afternoon. It is a direct drive trainer, you take the rear wheel off your bike and mount the bike to to the trainer. Had to borrow some special tools to put the gears on it Saturday. Rode it for about 15 minutes Saturday night using my old trainer's software to control the resistance. Put the new trainers app on my laptop Sunday morning and rode 9.5 miles. Although the route was fairly flat and easy, I pushed it more than normal. It was all I wanted today. I'll try to put up a pic or two tomorrow.
I took it to my room after Sunday mornings ride. When I went to move the old trainer, I noticed one of the pieces that I had glued back together had come apart, so replaced it just in time.
Enjoy the new trainer, mbuster! I didn't know your old one wasn't direct-drive. That's what makes taking my bike off the trainer such a pain -- replacing the quill with a wheel and kind of realigning everything. Not something I wanted to do often.
I went to ride my bike yesterday with our granddaughter and found the front tire is leaking air. I'll fix it tomorrow. It should hit 70 here on the tundra, so it would be nice to get out and about.
I've been biking for a few years now, mainly because I didn't think my knees could handle running.
Yesterday was prep day for my 10 year colonoscopy today. I learned I can run ...... but I think I'm gonna stick with biking.
Doing a two week special safety project job at the place I retired last year. Got in 12,700 steps and 8 floors today. I kind of miss getting the stairs in, should get a lot more in as I get around the boilers for the project. Glad its temporary, I don't miss it that much.
