Im a triathlete and been using trainerroad for about 3 years now. I tend to use the trainer a lot more in the winter months. Over the last couple of winters I have noticed I get a slight knee pain which gets worse as the winter progresses and then running seems to make it worse once it has started. It does not hurt while on the Turbo.
I have a basic set resistance on back wheel trainer, I’m guessing the constant resistance and non realistic road feel could be causing the pain? My question is has anyone else suffered from this and would getting a smart trainer with a flywheel and more realistic road feel resolve this? I ride a lot in the summer on the road and don’t get any problems.
