First-time Home Trainer Buying Question

Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone here was willing to share their indoor training setup as I am trying to buy my first serious trainer and would like to get the most out of the experience.

One main question I have is how to calculate cadence and upload the information to Strava; is it worth messing with a smart trainer that "Bluetooths" cadence to a bikecomp (I use a Garmin 1000), or would buying a cheaper trainer and attaching a 3rd party cadence sensor accomplish the same result?

Looking forward to seeing what you all do when the temperature gets too low, cheers!
