Think it depends on the trainer. Mine was (have just taken down) I'm the conservatory but wasn't particularly noisy

I ended up not using it again as my family can't bear the noise. Maybe I'll have to put it out in the garden.

When I used my turbo on a hard wooden floor it was quite loud. Some sort of mat (old yoga mat, rubber gym floor mat, I think there are specific turbo mats that Halfords etc sell) will deaden the sound to a degree, but it does depend on the model you're using.

Got something to say?

So I am fancying a turbo trainer, maybe. I don't have a clue what I should be looking at though...
