    I'm a fan of the mid-sole foot position. But I can't find satisfactory foot retention for that foot placement on a 2 wheeled recumbent. I've seen people modifying shoes, but I'm not ready to do...

    After comparing my fat bike to my mountain bike with studded tires, I'm riding my fat bike more often than my mountain bike. I've never gone with skinnier tires than 2", so I can't comment on that.

    So is the warranty on the Kurt Kinetic $80 better than the CycleOps? Looks like the Kurt Kinetic might be a better trainer and have a better warranty.
