    Bike Trainer vs Spinner Bike?

    The ProForm TdF trainer looks interesting. Does it have a freehub to allow coasting? The price is a lot better than the Cycleops as well! On the other hand, the CompuTrainer simulator looks like is the thing to get! Price is very high... and shipping to Canada is about $200~

    Bike Trainer vs Spinner Bike?

    So preparing for winter season, what do you guys use to keep you riding going during off season? Bike Trainer is more affortable compare to a Spinner bike but some claim it harm your carbon frame bike and headset. If you twist your bike alot, this can't be any good to the frame either...

    question on a couple of bikes

    After all the threads posted by jrstudman81, it turns to this! Pretty sure a hybrid/fitness bike is not "just as good" as a good road bike, but I am not here to convince anyone :)

    Locks & Security

    I own a Kryptonite New York Standard lock and I admit it, I don't use it that much.... it is super robust if you need it! Keep in mine this bike lock is HEAVY!!! You just gave me an idea... If I want a more intense work on with my road bike, i'll just bring this lock along!!

    How much impact can a road bike wheel take?

    So I recently bought a new road bike and really want to make sure it will last! But with the road we have, the wheel is taking a beating... I have a Trek Madone 5.2 with Bontrager Race wheel... To my knowledge, they are entry level stuff... are they going to come apart one day?

    Need to train for MS Bike Tour

    Thanks again! All the tips is well taken :) Any comment on bike lock? Is a fair size investment and I hate to see it get stolen. Kyptonite New York lock seems to be the best out there, beside the very high price ($115cad), it is also very heavy!! The plan is to get a good U-lock and a...
