Hi all. I'd like to do HIIT every day for fitness in the morning. But the problem is, I live in an urban area. And to get to a place where I could do my intervals safely would take me 30 minutes of riding. Which really cramps me for time in the morning, and a lot of what interests me with HIIT is that it only takes 20 minutes to do it.
So I am thinking of getting a trainer. Now I have an old 80s road bike converted to single speed (not fixed). I've never used a trainer before and don't know a lot about how they work. Here's the one that I'm looking at: http://midtownbikeco.com/page.cfm?Pa...ils&sku=WT3325 . It says it has 5 resistance settings, but it doesn't say how wide they are. I'd like some variability in resistance, which I worry about since my bike is single speed. I'd also like to do the spinerval DVDs, can I even do those on a single speed bike?
Also will I have any problems with 27" non-quick release wheels?
If I got a cheap geared road bike from walmart (which would never leave the trainer ) would that work better?
Or should I just get an exercise bike?
