Been riding for decades, never rode an indoor bike, never wore a heart rate monitor, never took a spinning class etc. So I when it snowed in October this year I bought the Kurt Kinetic.
Do I get a computer with cadence and a heart rate monitor to attach to the rear wheel? Which one? (Just the basics.)
Any good articles out there to get started? The Kinetic came with a Spinervals video but it seems like it was made for indoor cycling pros or something and assumed knowledge of RPMs by heart rate and various related buzzwords of the genre. Not helpful...
During the winter, I'll watch cycling races on the tube or on the laptop and
pedal away on my roadbike. It's done wonders for my cabin fever.
The Road Machine is the best trainer available.
Just make sure you get a "Trainer" specific tire.
It'll make things a whole lot easier for you.
I bought the KK Wireless computer and just use the computer.
I cut the cadence wire (I don't need no stinkin' cadence).
I have never used the heart monitor.
Other than that, it's an nice piece.
