    The poll could have included ďdo not use an indoor trainer, always outside bike milesĒ (or similar wording). Having said that I have a 1Up trainer, the last time I rode it was Jan 9th 2011. Since then I made a commitment to ride a bike everyday outside and to date have yet to miss a day. I couldnít give an honest vote on the poll with the choices givin.

    My indoor training is outdoors during the winter months. It's hard for me to get on an indoor trainer, but not impossible. If it's snowing and I am not feeling lazy, I might get on the indoor trainer, might. It's hard, I tell you; it's hard.

    My plan is to build my own indoor velodrome. However, I am still waiting to win the lottery

    That's my plan.

    That said, Anchorage already has an inflatable dome sports arena that allows us to ride road bikes on the track once a week. Some people ride pace lines, some do TT training, and others just do whatever. A good session during the winter months can attract 20+ riders. To be honest, I don't think a velodrome would attract enough riders to keep the lights on, much less the heat, but since I'd be filthy rich, I wouldn't care so much. I'd bring in a track coach, have a bunch of good rental track bikes, and build the scene from the ground up.

    It's good to have dreams...

    I just do something else -- or possibly nothing at all. Its good to have a break from the bike for a month or two. Indoor trainers are just too painful.

    My heavy commuter is even heavier with studded tires.

    Did you keep the setup? Sounds like you have much more fun on the CX out on the trails than on the trainer.

    That would be my greatest concern that I'd get bored and would have sunken a lot of money into an expensive clothes hanger.

    Yep, Iíll use my trainer but Iíd really rather ride. Itís 25 degrees right now and Iím heading out with my MTB to do a beach ride.
    To date, philosophers have merely interpreted the world in various ways. The point however is to change it.

    I kept it for a while but didn't use it much.I think if I had a dedicated space to keep it set-up I might've just hung onto it.I had no trouble selling it on last month...just as it started to turn cool here.

    Odd thing now is I am thinking about one of those smart trainers and Zwift. Just doing some research now to see if it's worth it and of any possible benefit to me. This time change has made it too dark to ride after work. I'm trying to keep an open mind on this. One thing for sure is I don't want to spend too much money on a setup.
