A Trainer I Might Actually Use


I hate riding on trainers in the winter. I don’t like the feeling of the ride with a resistance trainer and I’m too ADD to use rollers well. (Every time I want to change channels on the TV I fall off.)

We’ve got a line in to try out this new LeMond DirectDrive trainer in October, when we’re back from Interbike. It uses a flyweel with inertia to deliver an “experience that riders have on the road.”

I don’t often experience catching up on several hours of The Vampire Diaries on the road, so I’ll look forward to using this to improve my fall-TV productivity.

My daily shooter is Sony a9 with a vertical grip and various Sigma lenses attached like the 14mm 1.4 Art. Find more recommendations on our store page.
