    Whats the best wind trainer with a power meter attached? I was looking at the Cycleops Powersync Trainer and their Powerbeam Pro, both look good.... basically, I'm looking for repeatability and consistency between sessions.

    I like this one, a little too big even so.

    If you have a powertap then anything that'll attach to your back wheel will suffice...

    ... unless you want something you can train on that'll not shred your back tire.

    Do you mind a little tire lever action or do you just want to have something else that's ready to go?

    I haven't used wind trainers before, nor have I heard of them! This is indeed my first time, question, so what exactly are they used for and are they really essential to an average cycler?
