    Show us your Pain Caves / Zwift holes...

    I'm thinking of getting on to Zwift this year, only thing is, I have nowhere ideal to set the rig up. My Turbo normally sits in the spare room and gets taken down if we have guests. There really isn't much room for the screen, so don't know where I will put the monitor.

    Sticking an Ipad on the bike isn't ideal as im short-sighted and would prefer a nice big screen, say 32" minimum.

    Let's see your rigs then, people. I know some people have some proper custom setups in their garages etc.... post-a-pic!

    My pain caves are my own personal Calvary, I don't want to share them with anyone else except non-cyclists to show how fooking hard I am and for them to read Rule#5 for themselves.
    It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, its how times many you get back up that count.

    I just set mine up in the Living room.
    Turbo is left there all Winter and I just bring in either mine or the lads bike as we need them.
    Last Winter the lads bike was permanently set up in the Living room from October to March.As he had broken his arm(bike crash)we thought it was a good idea to leave it there so he could use it as and when to rebuild his confidence
    He loves Zwift and this year will be able to use my Smart Turbo as his new bike will be 650c as opposed to 24" wheels

    Think you need to let the wife in there to tidy up a bit BHJ. That's a bit messy.

    it is supported Mart...it's on a tool box with a bit of 3x2 to make the height ...and it's well study.
    the ride was weird because it was comfy....my outdoor bike the Cipo is a mean ride...real sporty and not made for comfort..bit like a Lamborghini ...but I've got use to it, and then wham pina not so hunched over ,even the crank feels like it's too far forward...strange but fun

    I know the front drop outs are on top of something. But how else is the bike supported?!
