We love our CycleOps Fluid 2, and have gotten familiar with many of the other trainers out there over the last few years.
But the future for indoor training is what really excites us…take a look at this video from the guys at CycleOps and the direction they’re heading (we love their newish Silencer Direct Drive trainer and their upcoming Hammer model sounds amazing!). Well worth a watch!
If you’re looking for some Spring training tips to really improve your hill-climbing, then this is the video for you.
The video is from the impressive CycleCore (aka Graeme Street), who has some awesome training videos (another one we featured here).
The clip features THREE awesome tips for some high intensity hill climbing, including the Climbing Energy Ass Kicker technique – yes, check out the video below to understand more! And yes, his man cave probably needs a bit of work…
And yes, that’s an ass-kicking Kurt Kinetic trainer taking a beating in the video!
OK, there’s no getting away from it, some of us cyclists say some real *shit*. The question is, just how many of these are YOU using – go on, be honest!
We posted this video a while back and know that many of you enjoyed it, so here’s another one from the boys at CTXC, who’ll have your legs pumping in no time!
This video lasts for 60 minutes in total, including a 10 minute warm up and 3 minute warm down, so be prepared to sweat! The music will certainly keep you in the groove and the camera angle and street views will have you feeling as if you’re out there on the road with them!
Load this one on your TV/laptop, turn the volume up, and start pedaling!
Now this is a great motivational video from Melbourne’s famous Beach Road! The music is a-pumping for 45 whole minutes, and the excellent angle of the video makes you feel as though you’re there with the rest of the crew…what we liked were the quick sprints which had us overtaking the main group of riders!
Put this one on your TV/laptop, turn the volume up, and start pedaling!

We’ve recently switched over to Strava to keep track of our training sessions (after being firm believers of Endomondo), and have been enjoying their info and stats we compile as we cycle along our merry way.
Came across this video this morning and thought we should add it to the site, especially for those of you looking for a bit of inspiration.
We all have our own little cycling rituals, what’s yours?
We moved to Strava mainly because of Strava’s ability to track virtual training sessions, something we hope to really dig into soon!
We get asked this question a fair bit, and to honest, with the number of times we’ve explained it, the easiest way is to simply share a video with you. Visual aids always rock, right? And this video will also hopefully help our fingers out too, as we’ve typed out more than enough answers
The video features the skewer for the Kurt Kinetic Road Machine, but don’t worry, it’s pretty much the same process for all bike trainers.
As always, if you have any questions, feel free to get in touch!
