In preparation for those wet winter days I'm considering my options for inside cycling fitness. Last year I hired a treadmill which significantly improved my fitness but wasn't great on the knees. Having not used either before, any suggestions on whether I'm better off getting a spin bike or a trainer?
I will do what I always do - keep riding! Will be upping the singlespeed mountain biking get power and strength back in the legs. CX as well.
i would love to get rollers. my trainer sounds like a 747 taking off and drives my wife nuts!!!
Sounds good, deal :-)
Shall we do the transaction next week, so that I don't share my cold germs? Either PM me on here, or get Corinna to PM me on bookface.
Fair call, cool - I'll be back in touch when I'm no longer harboring the viral beasties!
Hey Gemma if you don't care about resistance on your rollers buy mine (7 months old @ $180), I am upgrading to get resistance so if you guys are cool I can buy Alasdairs. Let me know if this works
Yes same here, thank your for your reply
Im about to get a spare rear wheel for using on my indoor trainer.Think I had the roller a bit tight & wore out a rear tyre on 2 weeks.Im getting it fitted with a trainer specific tyre
Don't forget The Suffer Fest Videos to relieve the boredom of indoor trainers
I just went and had a look at these online.
Does anyone recommend them? I can see some indoor training coming my way in May/June and was wondering if they are worth it?
Also, what variations of Apple i<things> have people tried them on? I have an iPad 2 I could use at home but if using at the gym I would want to use my iPod Nano (latest model with the touch screen).
Will the on-screen instructions display OK on these?
