Nathan if the variable resistance unit is cheaper then I can understand why you went for it. By complicated I meant an extra complication in the trainer which is not required and just gives something else to go wrong.
I still can't see why anyone would need variable resistance. On my turbo I just go up the gears for a high power low cadence interval and pick an easy gear for high cadence spinning.
If I were you Nathan I'd just switch it to the maximum setting and coil the cable and adjuster away. You know it makes sense.

Gregg, you would need to try a variable and non variable turbo, made by the same company, back to back in order to appreciate the difference. Level 3 on my trainer is equivalent to the non variable trainer in its "fixed" state. On that trainer you change gears to alter the resistance - I understand that. However, on mine when I'm in my hardest gear on level 3 (normal), I can then increase the intensity even more, by switching to level 4 or 5.
What I'm saying is my trainer goes all the way to 11!

Good for you Nathan enjoy it. I didn't realise you were a power monster.

I don't think I was suggesting that. In fact I wasn't talking about me - merely trying to explain the difference between the two types of trainers. Let's just leave it here so as not to hijack this guys thread. Someone might come along and offer some helpul advice, which was the intention of my original post.
You don't get the point of variable resistance. I'll not lose any sleep over that, as I'm sure you won't. Shake hands and agree to disagree etc etc

Nobody seen that? All his amps go to 11. Most amps go to 10, so it's 1 louder!?
You are right, max resistance + hardest gear = pain!

What I meant was its the wrong way to go about turbo training
