Commit to the suck.
For those of us in less-than-temperate climes, the reality of winter includes a lot of trainer time. And, while we cyclists are generally more than happy to spend money on kits, components, and bikes, indoor trainers don’t typically make the cut. If you think about it in terms of return on investment, though, a genuinely comfortable, powerful training tool should be on your list if you ride indoors for more than a month or two of the year (looking at you, Wisconsin).
The steel-framed CycleOps Phantom 1 Indoor Cycle is adjustable at all of your touchpoints, accepts normal saddles and pedals, and locates the 48lb freewheel to the rear, so you don’t gum it up with perspiration.

- Q & A
Works well, but flywheel gets hot
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Bought this in Sept. 2016 and riding 2x a week since then. Like the stability, road bike-like handlebar. Only problem is after about 20-30 minutes of riding the brake starts to squeal and the flywheel gets hot. I've contacted Cyclops but they don't know how to fix the issue. Anybody else ahve this problem?
train in the winter time
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I wanted to do some training while it was un-ride-able outside, so i decided to to do just that and start my training inside. this trainer is super nice. you can adjust every aspect of the bike so it fits you like your road bike fits you. you can adjust the tension on it super quick and easy if you want a harder work out.
having the wheels on the back make it easy to transport around to different areas of your house.
how does thin compare to the Lemond Rev Master?
