    Cycle Trainers

    I'm looking to buy a cycle trainer. Any recommendations from fellow Edugeekers?

    Been looking at:

    CycleOps Classic Magneto Trainer

    But is it any good?

    Space is an issue so cycle rollers not a possibility.

    Just need somewhere where I can leave it all set up to do a 30 minute burn in front of Kerrang!

    Looks interesting, but from the way it's attached what would happen if in a moment of lost concentration you leant too far either way? Would that damage the bike/device? Plus there's the inevitable dirt on the tyres that you can never seem to clean off completely, lowering the WAF.

    Personally I'd buy an exercise bike.

    Confidence Stow A Bike Foldable Exercise X Bike: Amazon.co.uk: Sports & Leisure

    Half the price, plus you can fold it away.

    Good idea about the exercise bike but we have absolutely zero storage space.

    Apparently there is a big outdoorsy thing that can be used with a bike. Comes with free 3D ultra resolution moving images of roads, trees, hills - all kinds of stuff really. Can't find it on Amazon, perhaps have to try ebay?

    Then where would you store the device you linked to?
