Looking to get my wife riding on the trainer with minimum hassle, and my simple brain is struggling.
Kickr Core is setup with an 11-28 cassette, and my roadie lives on the trainer during these lockdown days.
Wife has an old Dutch-style cruiser with a 6 speed freewheel, I’m thinking that will be a pain to get working on the trainer - are 6 speed cassettes even a thing?
Not completely against getting a new bike, when lockdown has passed, she will be riding to work again which would help justify purchase.
Easiest would be a cheap roadie, but wife has no interest in drop bar bikes. I think a hardtail could be an option as she does enjoy the odd adventure race (run, kayak, MTB things) when she borrows a mate’s MTB.
Issue there is cheaper MTBs come with 7 or 8 speed cassettes, I guess easy enough to swap over on the trainer with a spacer, but who needs that hassle a few times a week?
Say we got a bit fancy and went with an MTB with e.g. 30T crank and 11-42 would there be a problem with chain length when on the trainer with 11-28?
Thanks for any tips! I feel like this is one of those things I’m overthinking
