Hi, I need help! It's going to be winter soon and I want to move my biking indoors. I want to
continue biking on the same bike I use outdoors. I've seen this item before, but I have no idea what
it's called. I'm looking for this 'thing' that will jack--lift--the back of my wheel up so that my
bike remains stationary and I can bike indoors. I am sure someone knows what i'm talking about. A
website or the name of a product would be great. Thanks!

It's called a trainer. Every cycling-based website will have them, but you should check some out in
a shop. The price difference will be minimal, and you will get to choose what is good for you. Bring
your bike, try the trainer out in the store.

then you can make use of some of your old phone books by using them to level out the front of yout
bike so you don't slide off the saddle.
