Buy and sell high-quality indoor cycles
The concept of indoor cycling came up in the 1980s, when the professional cyclist Jonathan Goldberg had the idea to mount his bike for training in his garage so he didn’t had to leave his pregnant wife during the training period. In the meantime indoor cycling became one of the most popular training programs for endurance and strength training in gyms. What makes indoor cycling special is the possibility for the athletes to motivate each other or get motivated by the indoor cycle trainer to perform to their best without losing fun.
Indoor bikes can be best compared to crosstrainers with a high gyrating mass. However, indoor bikes don’t have a freewheel or training computer with selectable training programs. There are some criteria to consider when buying a new or used indoor cycle, because a professional machine in a gym needs to be more resistant and high-quality processed than a home training machine for occasional use.
An overview of the most important criteria:
Gyrating mass and drive pulley: The most important aspects when buying a new or used indoor cycle are the fly wheel and the gyrating mass. A high gyrating mass serves to overcome the turning point between the upward and downward movement of the bottom bracket. Especially for high frequency training which is often asked for in indoor cycling courses, a high gyrating mass is necessary.
Braking system: The braking system of an indoor cycle principally works similar to a normal bike brake which is used by a rotary knob mounted at the handlebars. According to the intensity of the rotation, the cyclist can individually regulate the braking power and influence the braking effect. Additionally, indoor cycles are equipped with an emergency brake as they don’t have a freewheel.
Adjustable seat and handlebar: The processing and stability of the handlebar of an indoor bike is even more important than it is for an ergometer, because the athletes often ride out of the saddle to tread into the pedals standing in a weighing ride. The handlebar should also be well coated which provides a better and safer grip when sweating. When it comes to the seating position of the indoor cycle, the user should be able to hold the handlebar tight while seated. The handlebar of the indoor bike should also be adjustable for being adaptable to persons of different height.
Condition of the used machine: If you are interested in used training equipment, it is recommendable to ask for its condition. Overhauled and maintained machines from manufacturers or retailers of fitness equipment are of special interest, because they often provide an additional guarantee.
