BXT Carbon road frame and hometrainer
« on: June 08, 2017, 12:35:15 AM »
Looking to upgrade my current, very old road bike to a newer, mabye carbon road bike.
I ride on the hometrainer alot when it's raining or my son is sleeping.
But how do these chinese carbon frames hold up, being fixed to a hometrainer?

They hold just like any other carbon bike, which is "if you break it, you are ready for the Tour de France green jersey".

Most modern road bikes are made of carbon now. People use them on trainers. Frames coming from China are just fine.

Do you personally have any experience with it? That's also what I'm looking for :)

I have been using carbon frame on turbo trainer for a few months already with no issue.

I am always seated and not looking to do any out of saddle effort

the rear drop out is attached to trainer so logic dictates the bike frame itself should stay with the side to side motion of the trainer :)
