I use a combination of the bike gears and the resistance until it feels like the right resistance. And McG, if you get to use it near the sofa, you're lucky. The family are tiring of the burst eardrums

If you put turbo trainer into youtube you will see lots of folk falling off. I would take that as a how not to tutorial.
