The Best Indoor Bike Trainers: Our Reviews

Indoor bike trainers are useful tools for getting in a ride when getting outside is difficult. After all they are far less bulky than exercise equipment or spinning bikes, and you don’t have to worry about wearing a helmet. However, finding the right one requires a bit of research, because you need one that will not only fit your bike but also your living situation, your workout desires, your budget, etc. The most important consideration is whether the trainer will fit your bike. Many trainers only take bicycles with certain wheel sizes, or work best with road bikes instead of mountain bikes. Most bike trainers fit bikes with 26 in., 27 in., and 700 cc wheels. You will also want one with a variety of resistance settings so you can tailor your ride to your needs. If you live in an apartment or shared space, you may need a quiet trainer. Finally, you will want a trainer that has a reputation for stability. Each of the following trainers offer a variety of resistance settings, a quiet operation, and a reputation for stability.
