I've used a fluid trainer for many years. I have always noticed how hot it gets after 30 minutes or so. You can actually smell the heat at times. So today I decided to pull out the infrared thermometer and measure the temperature. Here are the results:
After 10 minutes
After 30 minutes (19.5 mph avg at the end)
I'm guessing the temperature was still increasing but I was out of time. Still, way too hot for comfort.
My trainer: TravelTrac 2000
Anybody else have data on how hot trainers can get?
