Thom_y: Your creative use of your stereo room is awesome.. You should get a helmet cam and film your summer riding to re-live during the winter practice sessions... or get a winter place here..
When I had a bigger place I practices on my Kreitler Rollers (They will fix your pedal stroke or you will die trying) in front of my Magnapan IIIa's... the only problem was when I got tired I would slide off (20mph) and put skid marks on the floor because of breaking to prevent running over my system!
If you are into euro motorsport racing.. Speedtribe (http://www.dance51.com/speedtribe/dvdtrailer.html)is worth getting on DVD.. great CD to listen to and the DVD is qued to front242... amazing cool effects with the camera...
