Training & Nutrition - Indoor bike trainer
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I'm talking about the ones you ride on your bike for; not the indoor cycling machine.
if i were to buy a set of rollers or a rear wheel resistance unit, used, what would be a reasonable price?
i'm check this here out. think it's a good deal? i know nothing about trainers, but i know i want to stay in shape over the winter.
still debating buying a set or rollers, or buying just a trainer (watch tv at same time), or just buying a membership at the gym and get a total workout (but then have to deal with monthly fees + commute).

It's within the medium price range.Make sure you get good music,'cause it's kinda boring but it's a real time saver.
Never heard of a Rad but seems Amazon sells it new for $116. Personally, I'd get a Kurt or Cycleops.

I own a kurt kinetics fluid trainer and I think it is a very high quality trainer. It is designed so it will not leak.
But trainers are boring. I found the book "Workouts in a Binder" by Dirk Friel helps the time go by eaisier and keeps me motivated during the Wisconsin winter.
I don't own a set of rollers, but Kreitler is the brand that most serious cyclists swear by.
A used kurt kinetics would run about $150 - 200.

I have a 1 up trainer and I love it. It's as quiet as can be. And it's not a fluid trainer so no worries about leaking.

The Kurt Kinetics are very quiet and are guaranteed to not leak. By their design, it's almost impossible for them to leak. I really like my KK, worth every penny. Plan on having it for a while if you go with the KK.
