Background-Mainly a runner but looking to get a fluid trainer for the winter. I have an old Trek 360 in the basement that hasn't been used in about 15 years and needs to be tuned up. I'm not looking to ride the streets at all, just stay in shape. So here is my question...
If my Trek can be fixed, am I better off buying a very low end, low end or medium end bike since weight and components won't matter as it won't be moving or riding it anyplace? In other words, would a 10 speed Ross or entry level road bike work as well as a 21 speed $1000 Specialized or Canondale? You get the point.
my answer would be a big yes on that. I sure as heck wouldn't go out and spend a bunch of $$ on a bike that your just going to use indoors.
Just to confirm, as long as the bike fits on a trainer, the "quality" dosn't matter
