Subject: Which Bike Trainer and bike combo
I want to do some biking. I live in Bangkok where traffic is deadly! There is a cycle track at the airport and I plan to go there weekends, but have to get a 40 min taxi there and back so can't go every day.

I want to get a bike trainer, which one should I get? I would like it to be a smart trainer and would like to try zwift. Should I get the Kickr core? It's available here in Bangkok but need some guidance on if I should get that one or another? Price wise, that's about as high as I can go.

I am a total beginner, I need to get into some exercise to try and get fit. There are a few series of triathlons here and some for beginners like sprints - 400 m swim, 20 km bike and 5 m run.

I want to train for these as a challenge. I can run outside (traffic, noise and pollution are terrible but doable) or get the train to a park. I can swim in a pool but need a trainer set up at home to cycle.

Can you please advise on which trainer plus bike to get? The bike I was thinking about a cheap option from decathlon - something like this:

Thanks for the help!

I have gotten info about price for the kicker and an 11 speed cassette.

What cheap bike would go well with it? Preferably a cheap bike from decathlon that is compatible? Like an entry level road bike?

The Kikr core is an awesome trainer. Personally though I would rather spend a little more on a bike that I could use for a race or outside riding and a little less on a trainer. If you need help picking out a trainer is by far the most useful resource for me. His reviews and buyers guides answer any question I can think of and then all of the ones I never even thought of.
