Re: The Audio-Talk Cycling thread.

My Elite Drivo 2 smart trainer arrived today so I've been assembling it and working out how to use it - I've just installed the free Elite software to start so I can work out the basics before I take out a Zwift subscription (They do a free trial period but I don't want to start it until I know what...
