Hi everyone,
I put this in general discussion but wasn't sure if it belonged there so I put it here too. I want to start cycling but indoors exclusively, I'm just interested in fitness and not competing or racing or anything like that. The reason being where I live theres a lot of maniac drivers and when I used to ride outdoors when I was a kid I crashed more often than I'd like to admit, I'm a bit of a clutz. I used a cheap stationary bike for awhile but it broke down, and I've heard using a bike trainer is better than a stationary exercise bike, so if I was to get a bike only for use on an indoor trainer, would any bike be adequate? I would like to use it everyday or close to everyday, I'm guessing the weight wouldn't matter since I'm only staying in one spot, would it matter if it was a mountain or road bike? Should I get one with as many gears as possible to simulate various conditions?Any other considerations as far as design? How much would be an adequate price? As far as the trainer, I would like to simulate long distance rides as well as intervals, sprints and hill climbs if possible. I saw this trainer on ebay, http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...7154406878&rd=1 is this one good or is there another brand that is better? Any advice would really be appreciated from anyone who uses an indoor trainer, sorry for all the questions but I would like to get this right. Thanks
