Cycleops is offering you a free Joule Cycle Computer and Speed sensor combo worth £120 if you trade in your existing turbo trainer and buy a new one from its range. Don’t own a turbo? We have a sly scheme (see below) to take advantage of the offer anyway.
The deal is this: you need to take your existing turbo trainer – it can be from any brand and be in any condition – into a participating bike shop between now and 30 November 2015 (while stocks last) and buy a new CycleOps turbo: Magneto (£225), SuperMagneto (£300), JetFluid Pro (£325), SuperMagneto Pro (£335) or Fluid2 (£285).
As well as your new turbo trainer, you’ll get a CycleOps Joule cycle computer (ANT+ compatible) and a speed sensor worth £120. The Joule computer is designed for cyclists who use power measurement as the basis for training.
But what if you don’t have a turbo trainer to trade-in? Well, there’s nothing to top you from getting one cheap and trading that in. As long as you pay less than £120 – the value of the free Joule Cycle Computer and Speed sensor combo you’ll get – you’re still onto a winner.
The obvious places to buy a cheap turbo trainer are ebay, Gumtree and Freecycle, or you can check out the road.cc classified ads.
Go to ebay and there are plenty of turbo trainers with a starting bid price of 99p, and ‘buy it now’ prices from £29.95.
Another alternative is to use the comments below this article to buy/sell turbo trainers. Does anyone have one they want to offer for sale?
All of the CycleOps turbo trainers listed above are compatible with CycleOps’ VirtualTraining virtual bike training software to make your sessions both more effective and more interesting.
We’ve reviewed the CycleOps Fluid 2 turbo trainer (main pic) here on road.cc and we were really impressed. We concluded, “Great turbo trainer… build quality and performance justify the price tag.”
The Magneto – CycleOps’ £225 turbo trainer – offers progressive resistance, and the fact that the resistance is provided by magnets means that it’s quieter than most other trainers out there.
