What i'm wondering when I see your setups and see how it turns out during my work-outs on the trainer : what do you do with the (lots of) sweat dripping on the floor/ trainer matt / carpet? It's a pain to clean / dry after every work-out. Or does the fan prevent that extra sweat? I don't have a fan, train indoors (19 à 20°c), but with a big sliding window wide open (currently around 15°c outside at the moment), and still have lots and lots of sweat dripping on the training matt, onto the floor, under the training matt,... :evil:

I imagine that some people will still sweat buckets, regardless of the size/number/CFM of airflow while on the trainer. Even though our trainer sessions are less than 1-hour, I cannot imagine riding on the trainer without a fan, and from my experience, even with the climate control set to 68 degrees, despite the airflow from 3 floor fans in the room to help reduce sweat as well as improve evaporation, my wife and still raise the ambient temperature 2-3 degrees in the 'trainer room' (spare bedroom) during the course of the workout.

I always ware an assos skinfoil top which soaks up the sweat, keep a towel on the bars and the fan certainly help also to get the sweat to a minimum.

Tons of sweat, even with a bunch of fans. I have a trainer thong on the bike, and a towel under the frame of my rollers. Both the thong and towel go into the wash (along with bibs) immediately after every trainer session. It's a lot of laundry and my wife is oh-so-delighted... (not)

Fan pointed at my chest, headsweat (bandana), towel over the bars, and no jersey. I get no dripping sweat.

Nice Fit Man! I think the beard will cause some drag unless you braid it like a poney tail. :)

Elite Real e-Motion B+ rollers (FE-C control)

incoming..... Wattbike Atom

99% of my training is TrainerRoad on the Elite rollers.

Mac MINI with dual monitor. Soundbar above monitors; Rapha B&O headphones for late-night work (no, I didn't buy them... I won them from The Sufferfest in 2016!)
How well does the rollers work with the third party apps seeing as the max slope is 5 %?

Why do you need 2 monitors? How are you using then?
