I’ve been searching for a direct-drive trainer for a while… The best thing out there to-date is supposedly the BT-Advanced Training System. Noisy, but delivers a punishing workout from what I’ve heard. Until I live in a house with my own garage and no neighbors attached, I need to have a quiet means of training. Seems like the Italian folks at Elite may have come up with the solution – The Elite Turbo Muin. Direct drive fluid trainer and supposedly so quiet you can probably hear your neighbors eating their dinner. Thanks to Bob at ProNet and Rudy at Oschner, I was put in contact with City Velo in Denver who have one of these (hopefully magical) trainers on its way to me. With some luck I should have it before Christmas. If it lives up to the hype and allows me to do brutal workouts, I’m sure I’ll be cussing it out in no time! I’ll post more photos and a review once I’ve got it and churned out some miles.
