How do you like the road machine? I'm in need of the trainer and am trying to decide between kurt/cycleops. For what it's worth, I'm loving my new Specialized Toupe.

Race ride in an hour, but I think I'm gonna stay home, since my allergies are acting up and there are 45mph+ gusts currently.

I love it. I heard nothing but good things about the Road Machine and Rock and Roll, which is why I went with Kurt Kinetic. It's a very smooth ride, quiet (for a trainer) and folds down to a decently small profile if you have to store between sessions. One thing that's for sure (and I'm sure it's the same with all trainers) is that you'll need a trainer-only tire because it'll get worn down a lot quicker than riding outside.

You also have the option of getting the "Pro" versions of both which is just an extra 12lb flywheel which is supposed to make the ride even smoother and better synthesize riding outdoors. I didn't get the Kurt Kinetic computer (w/power guage) so I don't know how many watts I'm pushing, but I find the flywheel that comes with the Road Machine is pretty good for where I'm at.

I bought mine from Bicycle Outfitters Indy. I did a bunch of shopping around and they were always the cheapest around and they're an authorized dealer.

I have some teammates going up to Davis for the race weekend, sadly, I'm not going. Are you going to the UCLA race?

Wow a cycling thread on SF. I have been watching and learning for a long time. I assumed my first post would be clothing related, but I'll jump in here. I used to race as a Cat III.... 10 years and 40 lbs ago. Having kids and advancing my career have taken its toll. So I'm finally back at it trying to get back to enjoyable cycling. My racing days are certainly behind me, even as I continue to be a fan. Oh, 45 minutes on the trainer this morning as I wait for Spring. Maybe 12 miles

FINALLY a decent weekend to get some riding in.

39.2 miles - definitely need some new tires (no flat but wear is showing all of a sudden)

Got my C's upgrade, Cat 4 upgrade is currently pending, though I don't see why it wouldn't be approved. Anyway, fingers crossed!

Haha If that is actually you, I am very impressed.

I doubt we had a Red Bull sponsored rider on here... But that track looked like so much fun, I would probably die, but I would still love to have the chance to do it

That makes my CX races look like a pleasure ride in the country.
