Exercise Bikes

postby CorkSport - Derrick » 03/11/15 @ 15:33

I broke my exercise bike, had over 7072 miles on it for the 2.25 years I had was riding it. It was an old Voit 955 unit with a magnetic resistance

I picked up another used one on CL but it is kind of meh. Anyone have any suggestions on what brand I should look for on a newer unit? I prefer uprights so I can mount a keyboard/mouse platform on it for interwebz/gaming when I ride.

I've never rode on a trainer before, does it take long to get the hang of it without eating shit?

Start next to a wall, you'll eat it once or twice. They make contoured ones that are easier to stay on. The plus to these or turbo trainers is you can take your bike out on the road too, training and riding on the same bike is always a plus.

They also make front stands so you dont have to worry about sliding off the edge.
