    Hi,
    Concept 2s are the only ones worth getting in the long run. Best display, best resistance and the range is good. They're about 2 grand new (Australian) Used it is pretty much up to the person...

    Starting strength's novice program, it's pretty good and tough enough to keep me progressing while leaving enough in the tank to ride. It's (slightly) controversial around here, especially among the...
