If you regularly ride a bicycle, but the cold weather outside stops you from being able to ride, turning your regular bicycle into a stationary bike is an easy way to find two uses for the same equipment. All you need is a special stand that converts your bicycle into a stationary bike trainer.
Event, is a stationary bike better than a real bike?
Stationary Bike Advantages Stationary bikes offer some distinct advantages over real bikes, mostly revolving around the convenience aspect. However, they are not capable of providing the intensity level of a real bike, nor the outdoor scenery.
At any event, how many miles should you bike on a stationary bike? Five miles
Equal, do stationary bike stands work?
Straight stand up stationary bike stands are good for beginners because these bikes only allow the user to have something to pedal on. If you are into a more strenuous workout, then either the trainers or rollers will work for you. These types of bikes perfectly mimic the way actual cycling works.
Is 30 minutes on stationary bike enough?
Weight Loss. If you're looking to shed some pounds, an exercise bike is a very efficient way to burn calories. Riding a stationary bike for 30 minutes at a time can burn anywhere between 200-300 calories (depending on the users weight).

- 【Indoor Bike Trainers】: One of the problems with cycling, though, is that when the weather gets bad, conditions can keep you off the road or trail. Maybe it is raining or is too windy outside, or perhaps you need to avoid rush hour traffic or an unsafe dusk ride. This is when you just mount your bike on to a bike trainer and get the exercise that you want, but at home. There is no reason why you can not exercise with your bike when the outside weather is bad.
- 【Strong Structure & High Load-bearing Capacity】: The unfolded bicycle training stand forms a pyramid structure, which greatly improves the stability of the entire frame. Its strong material and stable structure enable it to withstand a weight of 330 pounds. In addition, any bicycle with a wheel diameter of 26 ''to 28'' including 700c can be fitted to our stand.
- 【6 Level Resistance Adjustable】: The trainer includes a drive-by-wire device so that you can change the resistance from your handle bars directly. You can adjust the magnetic resistor and switch the six resistance levels in seconds to meet your requirements about resistance and speed.
- 【Smooth & Low Noise Operation】: There is almost no sound on the wheels on the riding platform. It is recommended to replace smooth tires during cycling training to reduce vibration, reduce indoor resonance or add carpet under the stage. In some cases it will be loud with MTB tires. If you owned a MTB with rough tires, careful to buy. Because MTB tires will be loud with all bike trainers, no matter how expensive it is.
- 【Portable Folding Bike Exercise Stand】: In order to facilitate users to carry and store our bicycle training rack, we designed it into a folding style. It just takes a minute to set it up, clamp your rear axle with the quick clamp and adjust the contact between the wheel and the polished roller. No need to use other tools, you can directly complete the installation and disassembly process by putting up or unfolding the stand.
