Which bike for turbo trainer Tacx Flux S?

Postby Smurfy14 » 5 Jan 2021, 9:42pm

Evening all,

Looking for advice please.

As a complete beginner, I'm unsure which type of road bike to match up with a Tacx Flux S Direct Drive Smart Trainer.

It has a this specification: Compatibility: Bike & Axle: Race: 130mm; MTB: 135mm; Cassette & Wheel : Shimano & SRAM: 8 t/m 11 speed

Would a Carrera Virtuoso Womens Road Bike 2020 with a Shimano CS-HG50 8 Speed, 11-28t fit?

Please help

Yes but I think you will need a spacer for the 8 SPD cassette not to be sloppy on the hub. Should supply one ... poor do if you pay £100s for a trainer and leave out a £1 spacer....

But you can pick one up for a £1 from any bike shop or off the web .

Others with more experience should confirm this.

Cheers James
