    Tacx Bushido T2790

    This model is controllable via the Tacx app where rides can be created and pre-programmed or set workouts from Tacx can be used.

    This trainer cannot be controlled by 3rd party apps such as Zwift (Zwift is rubbish anyway) but I have always used it with Trainer road workouts and either pre programmed the ride profile to replicate the Trainer Road workout or adjusted the power resistance with a couple of clicks on the app on my iPhone as I’ve ridden the workout.

    The Tacx app also records data from the trainer and saves your workout, with a direct upload link to Strava, Training Peaks etc etc.

    Alternatively you can just increase or lower the power via the app on your phone/tablet as you're training without having any other application open, allowing a bit more freedom from the need to have a TV or computer, or the £12ish a month it costs for trainer road/zwift.

    PROs:

    • No Wires, No Batteries; can be set up anywhere indoors/outdoors/race warmup etc
    • Controlled by Phone/Tablet, No need for computer, cables or sensors
    • Can create your own completely custom workouts/warmups using the tacx app/utility
    • Very strong resistance unit
    • Wheel on; no messing about with indexing and removing wheels, no risk of snapping frames
    • Folds away very compact and very easily transportable
    • Free from the cost of subscriptions while still allowing the creation and riding of pre-designed workouts

    CONs:

    • Not usable with 3rd party apps (Zwift is terrible anyway)
    • Wheel on; not direct drive

    Think I've got a Schwalbe Insider turbo tyre spare i can throw in as well.
