Recommend a direct drive trainer

A light bike doesn't replace good fitness.

I got the cycle ops silencer, any question please ask..

Considering the cheapest powertap hub runs around $799 I really doubt they would sell one with ANT+ for the price.. but it's sort of a bummer it doesn't measure power.

I bought the lemond this year and I don't mind riding the trainer anymore. Before I used regular trainers or rollers for years, rollers are ok but hated the feel of the regular trainers. The direct drive are so much smoother and don't have that riding in mud feel. From the looks of it lemond has the watt box coming out soon to keep track of power on any ant+ device. The only bad thing is its alittle loud, it doesn't really matter to me because I use it in the basement and always have headphones on but living in a apartment or condo could be a problem with neighbors.

This has been referenced before, but really I'm surprised people forget about it:

You can dramatically reduce the 'loudness' of the LeMond trainer by a very simple adjustment which is just simply taking off the cover.
