Tacx Blue Matic Folding Trainer

When the weather is wet outside and you feel the urge to get on the bike and rack up some miles, jumping onto a turbo trainer is the next best thing. It's not ideal, but it saves you getting a complete soaking and also saves you the time and trouble of cleaning your bike after if you did venture out.
The Blue Motion, Matic and Twist are the long-expected successors of the Cycletrack, Tacx’s first model ever that has been very popular for decades thanks to its excellent value for money.
The same can be expected of the Blue, because you get more for less: a powerful brake that manages the resistance and a robust frame with solid back legs. Tacx’s many years of experience have resulted in the design of this stable construction that can withstand all forces.
The Blue is suitable for everyone, whether you cycle a lot or just every now and then. A quick half an hour’s ride before dinner? With the Blue you can start immediately. The trainer has a simplified mounting system, which makes it easy and quick to assemble. A tool set for small and big wheels is no longer needed; even 29 MTB wheels do fit.
Magnetic brake with resistance:
The Blue Matic’s magnetic brake consists of two discs with six permanent magnets each. With the 10 position handlebar resistance lever you can change the position of the magnets in the brake unit in relation to each other. While training the resistance increases when you cycle faster and/or in a heavier mode. The maximum resistance is 700 Watt.

I hope this helps.
You can buy one separately or use a book like I do..
Alternatively - what's the best way of reducing the wear of the rear tyre when using the power trainer ? I've been told to reduce air pressure a bit, or have a sacrificial tyre...
They work fine though
