    I've got two :o

    A tacx bushido and an elite direto. Direto is direct drive, got a good deal on it at a demo night and it's a nice unit. Simulates up to 15% and 2200W, not that I get anywhere near that.

    The bushido is wheel contact and also very good. The best thing about it is that it's totally self powered, no plugs or anything :) That lets me take it with me if I'm away somewhere or cant be bothered breaking down the winter bike.

    How is the Bushido, btw? It's a toss-up between that and potentially getting an Elite Real Turbo Muin, but they're two completely different approaches (and the Bushido actually comes with all the bits it needs to)...

    Easy to set up, use and is it relatively reliable (i.e. consistent)?

    Sorry, been away working, didn't see this.

    It has been pretty good. Needed a firmware update to work properly with zwift but that wasn't a problem. The tacx videos are pretty good too, if a bit pricey.

    no weights today, just 23k on the turbo last night. Weight is being a bit stubborn shifting. Body seems to be adjusting to the higher calories PT has me on. Lost about a kilo over the last 4 weeks so not terrible, just was hoping for a bit more.
