Kurt Kinetic Kurt Road Machine Indoor Bicycle Trainer
If you already own an outdoor bicycle, an indoor bike trainer is a great alternative to buying an exercise bike.
Most serious road bikers or triathletes use a bike trainer when they cannot go outdoors.
Your regular bike simply mounts on the bike trainer with the rear wheel touching a roller that provides resistance.
Bike trainers generate resistance either through air resistance or fluid resistance.
In the case of the Kurt Road Machine Indoor Bicycle Trainer, the roller spins a small impeller in a closed chamber filled with fluid. The faster you bike, the greater the resistance.
The Kurt Road Machine Indoor Bicycle Trainer uses a magnetic system to spin the impeller rather than an actual drive shaft. This eliminates the risk of leaks, the biggest complaint about bike trainers.
The Kurt Road Machine Indoor Bicycle Trainer is very stable, has a heavy flywheel for smooth performance and can accept any kind of bike, including tandems and mountain bikes.
