I'm interested for a friend who's always complaining about this. What model do you use?

Hello Hugor, I am envious of your training cave!


I use a Calibra,which is very old. But I noticed from a cursory look on ebay there are some much better air conditioners than mine for around 100 dollars.

Different maths to me... fan of doom 200, AC is 350 (and you'd get the 440 dollar one just in case). Interested though, once I get over my current lack of interest in the trainer :lol:

I bought one of these yesterday. It's a massive thing, probably *too* big.

Anyway, I did a two hour sufferfest session today and with it on the minimum setting it is the first time ever I've been cold on the trainer. It is also the first time ever I didn't leave a pool of sweat on the garage floor. In fact I got off the bike dry.

Come winter, I think I'm going to have to wear a windproof jacket! :shock:
