Indoor Bicycle Trainer

nbrooksNovember 8, 2006


Just wondering if any of you own an indoor bicycle trainer? I am specifically thinking about the stands that hold regular street and/or mountain bikes for indoor use. I am considering getting one for my husband but am not sure. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

My husband bought one last winter for his recumbent bike. He put over 500 miles on his bike while watching NHL games on TV. I probably contributed to 25 of those 500 miles. He loved it and when his bike went out of the house for the summer, he bought a recumbent stationary bike so I don't think he'll be using the trainer this year. I should have him put it on ebay.

I love my recumbant stationary bike. I am pretty fat and out of shape, but I do about 9 miles a day. I have to use it to keep my blood sugar under some sort of control. I would guess that the trainer you are speaking of would work quite well, but I don't know if it offers the varying degrees of difficulty like the stationary bikes.

I have the device that you are referring to. It is small, attaches to the rear wheel and have tension control, although I find that shifting gears on the bike works wonderfully also. Mine cost about $150 but works very well, is solid and does a good job.
