Do I have to buy a trainer tyre?
I'm thinking of buying a turbo trainer but don't want to faff about changing the rear tyre every time I switch from trainer to road. Can I use a trainer with just my normal tyre or is the performance compromised by not using a 'special' trainer tyre?
As I understand, you can use a normal road tyre on this trainer, however due to the heat generated when using the trainer a standard tyre will wear out very quickly.
I bought a continental turbo trainer tyre for use with this, however I have 2 bikes, one for use on the turbo and one for the road so I do not have the problem of needing to change the wheel.
