I'm looking at getting a home trainer, since there's a long period with shitty weather every year. Last year's round of crap weather almost destroyed my winter (steel) road bike. I haven't got it fixed yet.

I have found the Bkool (Connect Sport) on sale for 415 EUR (that's 570 USD). On the other hand, I have been offered a (used, from 2012) Tacx Bushido for 360 EUR (495 USD), which I can probably get for 340 EUR.

The big question: Is it worth getting a home trainer? I will be going to the gym, so I suppose that I won't loose too much balance/upper body fitness.

Next question: Which home trainer should I get? Has anyone used both the Tacx Bushido and the Bkool?

Thanks a lot :)

Do take into account that if you are using the PC interface that the T1991 ant stick does not work well with version 4.9. The garmin ant stick has the same problem. Tacx sent me a new cabled USB2 ant "stick". Huge and indiscreet

I actually cancelled the purchase, because the software doesn't work with Mac....

So now I've got a subscription for the gym at the university instead.
