Weather here is not good enough for bent riding, so I'm considering again purchasing trainer while waiting till roads are covered by snow.

Any good experiences and suggestions to meet "requirements" below:
- outdoor training in shelter (no rain, little wind), around 0C/32F
- should work for both 700c and (mtb) 650 tire sizes
- don't care much about simulated tracks and/or high-tech load control
- plus counted for small storage size and/or reasonable cost.

I'm also afraid a bit about loosing some stability if this winter season is not going to be "dry" to enable outdoor biking.
So is it even viable to dream using drum trainer (both wheels) with (M5 CrMo) lowracer ?

I'm (or used to) well used to use 19mm slicks in TT bike @ winter doing two-hour trainings in shoveled snowy pedestrian roads, likely able to pedal lowracer in trainer too .

you can use either a Kurt Road machine or a Cyclops Jet fluid trainer.
either one of these will give you a good workout.

Thank You
