Smart bikes

Postby Conscience » 6 Oct 2020, 8:57pm

Hi there, I work with vulnerable people and feel it's not safe to go to spin classes. I am looking for a smart bike to use at home. I have tried a turbo, very quiet, but hard on my bike, despite tyres with correct pressure and well maintained chain and gears. Any recommendations? Will a smart bike improve my fitness enough to justify it?

What features are you looking for in a smart bike over a traditional exercise bike?

I have a Wattbike Atom. Love it. It’s a stand alone machine ie I don’t strap a real bicycle to it.

I use it almost daily. It ties up with Zwift and that has lots of brilliant training plans on it. Best thing I’ve bought in a long time. And yes. It’s improving my fitness.
