For 3 months, I haven't had the ability to ride with any consistency. Illness, moving to Europe, waiting for my bike, a bunch of snowfall after my bikes arrived, and then waiting for my Tacx trainer conspired to make me a real dough-boy.
I was thrilled to receive my Tacx Satori Trainer in the mail today. Low-RPM/High Power resistance, stable base, reasonable price, all the accessories you could possibly need (towel, sweat guard, bottle, carrying bag, headband, and wristbands), and it's ORANGE!!!
Now, I have no excuses. 7 weeks until the Tour of Flanders ride and I need to get after it... Fortunately, I've got the right tools for the job now.
