    Trainer miles?

    Well, I rode twenty minutes on my trainer tonite for the first time in years. My post-Thanksgiving resolution is to ride more this winter - both inside and outside. How do I count these trainer miles??

    Oh.........I remember.......never mind.................

    Trainer miles are top shelf stuff, you get the worst of both worlds. Count'em! , unless you did them on a bent, then take the total and divide it by 4 since you could eat dinner or perform simple medical procedures on small pets while riding. Next time HTFU and get in 45 minutes.

    Well I'm going to have to count by "HOURS", as my 20 dollar, used Weslo "Pursuit 650" Resistance Cycle, didn't come with the "monitor". Thinking about trying to adapt one of the ultra-cheap "wire" bicycle computers some how. Still at least it's letting me spin and simulate hills, even figured out how to adpat some "metal half-clips" to the weird pedal's! For $20 bucks, 2 hours worth of disassemble, cleanout, regrease, reassemble, it let's me spin while looking out the window at the "ice rink" that are our streets!! With the Dec. temps having been below zero at night for many days, it's gona be a Looooooooooooooooooong time before my bicycle see's the road, RATS!
    Take care, RIDE SAFE, have FUN!

    I'm not a fan of trainers nor am I a football fan. Tonight I'm going to ride my trainer while watching the woebegone Cleveland Browns play the Pittsburgh Steelers on TV. How's that for suffering?

    Or...I could hang by my scrotum from a sharp hook for two hours.

    Toss up ~

    Louis, You could start at my house, I won't be using the trainer tonight. Bring your pedals, it's all ready to go. I'll provide the beer and snaks.

    Go Stillers'

    A.Jet, do you have a sharp hook on your wall just in case I decide to "cross train"?

    Wowzers, that's a nice set up.
