I wouldn't bother, you'll use it about three times, hate it, get bored and not use it any more.  All in my experience anyway

Si,

I've got one you could borrow for a couple of weeks to see if you like it? I bought it when I did my collar bone and am hanging on to it in case i need it for anything similar again.

I'm not back in Shef properly until just before new year though. If you buy one make sure it's magnetic or fluid resistance, the fan ones are very noisy.

A bit like buying a new bike then  :D

You can borrow mine to try over christmas if you like as we're away for a week or so.  You do realise that none of your bikes will work on it and you'll have to get a new one!

tis true mind mate, ride mine about 3 times then go on any proper ride at all and there is no comparison.

even riding from hillsbo to crookes 3 times there and back in the rain, in the dark with no lights at rush hour is better than turboing.
