We just received the new 2014 Alias Sport which is a pretty cool bike for a lot of triathalon-leaning ladies out there. This is a road bike that has optimized geometry for riding in an aero position. You can easily remove the aero bars and swap the post to achieve a classic road riding position. Check out the video for an in-depth explanation of how this all works. Think of this as two bike in one. Pretty cool!
Now that you have your trainer all sorted, you need something to measure the efforts you are putting in. There are a ton of options out there, but your smartphone is a great tool. There are add-ons that allow you to measure things like heart-rate, cadence, and power. A standalone unit, such as a Garmin Edge 510, is a great option for both outdoor and indoor training.
Join us for some indoor cycling on Thursday evenings through the Winter. Think of this as our weekly group ride, but indoors. This isn’t really a spin class, but just a chance to socialize and do some riding together. Each week will be a little different, as different individuals will lead the class. We will have some music and videos to keep you motivated. And probably candy. Because that keeps me motivated.
We have been receiving a lot of new product lately, but probably the most exciting thing to come in, is the new Wahoo Fitness Kickr trainer. This trainer is an electronic unit that is controlled by your iphone, ipad or Android device. Want to ride your favorite route? Race against your friends or yourself? This adds some excitement to trainer riding and keeps things interesting. The features are too deep to explain here, but have a look at this detailed DC Rainmaker review for all that this trainer can do. We only got a couple of these units, and they will go fast. Get ‘em now. $1199.
We just received this awesome new 2014 Camber Comp Carbon. With 110mm of FSR suspension, this is a perfect bike for a bit of racing and a lot of trail riding. A carbon main triangle keeps the weight down and provides stiffness and efficiency. Internal cable routing, Fox suspension and a Shimano drivetrain. Nice.
