    Indoor Trainer Setup

    My boyfriend has set up his bike on an indoor trainer. For Christmas he wants some sort of gadget that will allow him to mount the front of his bike on some sort of "block" and remove the front tire. Anyone know what this gadget would be called so I can do some online shopping for one? thanks!

    Edit: I found it.

    I am guessing that he wants to raise the front wheel to simulate climbing. This bracket can be screwed to a block of wood or a short step ladder to raise the front wheel. Some cyclists make risers out of scrap wood. A groove is cut in the wood for the wheel to fit into.

    Another option would be to get him one or he might even need two climbing blocks . There are three levels on the Cyclops block and they can be stacked on top of each other to simulate steeper inclines. This would give him more versatility. Kurt Kinetic makes a block with four positions but I am not sure if it can be stacked. A lot of bike shop stock them this time of year or you can order them from Performance, Nashbar, or Colorado Cyclist or Amazon.

    What is better than getting your heart rate up and saddle time?
