Is my trainer louder than expected?
When I get on the trainer it is very loud, the stand seems to fall back slightly on to the unit (and therefore the tyre presses more firmly on to the unit), causing a loud whirring sound getting louder with increased rpm. If I get off the bike and move the pedals manually the sound is the same but much much quieter (more the volume I was expecting). As a reference to volume, if I cycled on it you wouldn't be able to watch tv at all unless the volume was very high. This doesn't sound normal from others experience, any suggestions?
