The future of indoor trainers…this is one video well worth watching!

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!

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!

How to insert the included trainer skewer into your rear wheel?

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!

Video tips for getting more power and endurance from your indoor trainer

We know that once you’ve got your new stationary bike trainer up and running, you’ll be biting at the chomp to get those legs pumping!

And if you’re lucky enough to get some training DVDs with your trainer (which some models do come with), stick them in the DVD player and start training! However, most of you probably won’t know how to really get going with your trainer, and more importantly, how to really get more power and endurance from your training sessions.

This is where this great video comes in – we recently discovered it on YouTube, and it really does provide some great tips (here’s another of their great videos here).

Included in the video:

  • How to elevate your heart rate and your overall working threshold
  • How to refine your cycling technique and increase muscular endurance
  • How to elevate your metabolism and energy
