    Ergo trainer users

    Can users of Computrainers or similar give me their opinions on training with the ergo function? How useful is it to set at say 320w for an hour and just ride away without having to keep glancing at a CPU and adjust your wattage? I like the sound of this as well as the option of not having to...

    FTP v LT v AT

    Powertap SL or SL2.4?

    I am investing in a PT, I wanted the wireless one because it would obviously look neater but is it as reliable as a wired unit?
