Alright ladies and gents, just wondering what kind of fan set-up you all have while on the drainer...

That's nowhere near enough fannage for me!!!  Wow, I'd have to duct tape that thing directly to my forehead and hope I could crank it all the way to eleven!!!

How do you not overheat ??  I have three box fans.  2 angled in front and 1 directly behind me (the tailwind makes me faster Cool).

I actually don't have a fan, never have had one.  It is something that I have considered getting, I usually just open the door and let the sub-freezing temperatures cool me off some.  Definitely get some major sweat during Jorge's winter program!

I use none...Just let the sweat roll off. Helps me practice staying hydrated.

I've got one of these:


In the winter I cannot turn it on 2 even for multi hour rides or I'll freeze. In the summer, if it's over about 100 degrees I need it on 3 but most other times it's on 2.

Got it at Sam's Club. One of the best buys I've gotten. Prior to this one I had a standard box fan and literally left a puddle every time I rode.

I don't use a fan because I'm training for a warm weather HIM. But the trainer behind the sofa in the living room with TV angled just right looks awefully familiar.

"while on the drainer"

Was that a freudian slip?

We have a box fan, but our gym is in the attic and about 45 degrees unless you turn on the heat.  And that's not a euphemism for pedaling faster
