Thanks mate. I Used one og these. I live in Denmark (EU) comes from a local bike shop. The bike hangs in the pedal. Looks neat and is stable too:-).


#207

Like the Mount for the Bianchi They are from a local bikeshop here in Denmark. But They look like this. Works Awesome. They have room for an 80 mm deep wheel, But Thats the limit.image

Wow that room is green. :frog:


#211

I’ve got a real softspot for that shape of S-Works Tarmac… Lovely colouring too.


#212

Moving on Tuesday, this is the temporary setup for today’s abbreviated Eclipse. :rofl:


#213

Wow, I have questions about that ergometer!

Does TR control resistance of the ergometer?
Hows does the inertia compare to other trainers/outdoor?


#214

Some people have excuses, some people just do. Well done. :clap:


#215

Yes, TR controls it using ANT+ FE-C. The feel is what I like the most about it, I’d say it has a very road-like feeling. But I haven’t ridden any modern direct-drive trainers, so I can’t really compare it to those.

The bike is actually mostly use for test facilities, but I was lucky enough to have one lent to me to support my efforts of making this model and the more cheaper models ANT+ capable.

I’m amazed* at the amount of people that have garages, spare rooms and spaces for workouts that aren’t full of random crap.

*jealous


#217

serious crosswind!


#218

My garage used to be a room for my car and random crap spread out around it. I had a vision of a workout space that I would enjoy using and spent weeks researching how I could make it work and all the products that would suit my needs. Then I spent a week pulling everything out, throwing away junk, installing shelving and storage to organize things better and create the space I needed. Finally I was able to put in the workout equipment and I love the result. I can still get my car in the same as before, all the random stuff is more organized and accessible and I created a new “room” that gets a lot of use.


Rough plan I drew up in the planning phase. Final result surprisingly came very close to the plan


#219

@Adamjowens I’m amazed at the number of people who have garages that don’t have cars in them, but I think I am in the minority.


#220

Car goes in the garage, it’s just that including it doesn’t show off the paincave space as well.


#221

As a sub topic here, what does everyone do for climate control?

or am I the only southerner? Right now I’m keeping my inside garage door open and using fans to duct air into the garage from the game room, but I’m looking at a split ductless unit here in a few months.

Anyone?


#222

@mellowdave I’m in NC and just use two Lasko fans. In the summer I do my workouts in the morning before the sun heats up the garage too much, the temperature is between 75-85 in the hotter months when I workout.


#223

I’m in Texas… training in the garage is pretty much a non-starter for me. My wife and I are talking about building a finished shed (electricity, insulation…) in the next year or two, but otherwise I’m not training in a shed either. :stuck_out_tongue:


#224

My long term plan (next summer at the earliest) is to do the same, but then my current space is just going to become a bigger game room for th kids, so it will still need AC. Honestly, summer isn’t too bad with the AC coming from th house, but I guess since we never really get acclimated to cold here, I freeze out here when the temp drops.


#225

@julianoliver - how much height does your pain cave have. Would love to squeeze a rack into my garage, but not sure I have the clearance.
