Is there some sort of a converter to figure out positioning from a bicycle's geometry chart?

They have a fit wizard app that you can take a photo of your bike and use that as a guide. There is also inputs available if you have results from a professional bike fitting. I just did some basic adjustments to do a quick 30 min workout before the babysitter had to leave yesterday. Iíll spend more time getting the fit right this weekend. I might try the photo method with my gravel bike first.

I knew Wahoo was coming out with a Peleton clone but never saw an annouced price, $3500 *whistles

You can buy the bomb diggity Kickr and still have plenty for a proper road bike for that scratch.

I think that was a joke because of the way the seat post is mounted, not the actual effective angle.

That's a slick looking rig!

The benefit is that it's a permanent setup and has accurate sensors in it. It may be expensive, but that doesn't mean you don't get value out of it.

Nogger stepped up and got what everyone actually wants.

And it should hold value well. All of the other direct drive trainers have held value well so I expect this one should.

I considered getting a new road bike like a Caad13 and a Kickr core but I went on just one actual road ride all of last year. And my gravel bike with road wheels was well suited for it. I didnít see a reason to get a road bike that I wouldnít ride on the road. At that point, I figured a permanent setup would be better. This also makes it easy for my wife to adjust quickly for her to use it.

That Wahoo looks rad! I ordered a Peleton Bike+ recently, should arrive in March. It was cheaper than a trainer + a trainer bike and DCrainmaker testing showed really consistent power tracking with some options to sideload Zwift.

That's what they should have started with.

The classes are what they are, but that's an actual training bike.

We just got our Peloton+ or whatever the newer version is called. I really like it and the classes. I am hoping with consistency this winter I will come out of the gate this spring/summer doing longer rides faster than I have been able to this past year.

I thought about doing a peloton in April, but then I remembered I didn't much care for actual spin class or stationary. Have been balls out in the dark at 40F all winter and aiming for 2,000 miles outdoor this year.

We are thinking of a smart bike trainer. A stationary bike like the Wahoo, Wattbike, etc. That would allow us to both use the trainer and just quickly adjust it, rather than have two road bikes in the home gym. Probably wait until next fall/winter, as I am still riding outside and it will likely just get warmer here from this point out. And next year, who knows what trainers will be available, and they should be a bit cheaper....

There might be cheaper options by then. I was glad that I was able to get the Wahoo bike through REI and as a member, I get 10% back in dividends.

Hello!
The ATV market has been growing solidly, and that trend is expected to continue in the next few years. Much of this is due to the increase in recreational off-road activities and adventure sports. Check the rear ATV boxes here: https://atvbox.eu/rear-atv-box/

This pandemic is really cramping my MTB riding, but holy cow the Creo SL is a fun road/gravel bike. Before, I would do weekend 40-60 mile rides and feel pretty dead the rest of the day. Now I'm doing 50-80 mile rides and feeling mostly awesome the whole time. Such a fun bike...

...but I still want to move somewhere with better trail access. Park City full-time one day!

I ordered the Bowflex C6 stationary bike since I need something low impact to maintain some cardio.

Iíd ride in the cold if there wasnít snow on the trails. I hate winter.

Say you're doing polarized training and this is a way to up your zone 2 percentage to stick with the plan.

Tell her: "Yeah, you are right. I think I am going to start hill climb motorcycling."

I ride a lot of bikes in the Spring/Summer, but never as much as when I got my ebike. I ride that thing everywhere.
Tell her it's a for your mental health, then **** on the floor to prove your point.

Finally joining the 1up rack gang.

I've got a trip coming up where I'm renting a pop up (see the yota bro thread) - It will take away the ability to use my hitch rack. The pop up has a little basket in the front I'm hoping can hold the kids bikes, I'll put my wife's and mine up top.

Other news, I got my daughter a new bike yesterday. It's a Trek Roscoe 24. My son has one and it's been really good so we got a new one. Full rigid but 2.8" 24" tires so a bit more cushion/traction. His has been real solid and she's super stoked about it.

I have a Scott 24Ē bike coming in the next month or so for my 8 year old. A friend of mine had it for his daughter and is moving her to a 26Ē bike. Iíll get it to the powdercoater when it arrives to freshen it up. Need to buy a drivetrain and other cockpit bits for it, too.



I still might buy a plus bike similar to what youíve done specifically for MTB.

She was so stoked. Itís a nice light blue color but the fork had an issue so they warrantied it right away before sale and itís black. Sheís like ďitís one of a kindĒ in the cutest way possible to the salesman.

Sheís 9. I like my kids on bikes that are a bit smaller for them so they have the strength to maneuver them. Thatís part of why I wanted full rigid and I will never buy another bike without disc brakes again, they are just so much less trouble for kids who are rough on things.
