Not everyone gets the luxury of year round riding. The antidote? We suggest that you square off against Old Man Winter with the CycleOps 200 Pro Indoor Cycle. Whether you have springtime race ambitions, or you simply want to maintain some semblance of your summertime fitness & weight, the 200 Pro is where CycleOps balances cost considerations with access to real-time data to keep you informed & motivated.
This 200 Pro Indoor Cycle comes with the CycleOps Joule 2.0 cycling computer as standard equipment. This is the one thing that distinguishes it from the 100 Pro, which comes sans Joule. You'll get accurate digital feedback for a variety of information about your ride -- work measured in kilojoules, kilojoules per hour, and calories. Cadence: current, average, and max. Heart rate: current, average, and max. Speed: current, average, and max. Ride: time, distance, and time of day.
It's possible to ride with the Joule 2.0 outside on your bike as well. It will also record -- Climbing: current grade, current altitude, and total ascent. VAM: vertical ascent, current altitude, and total ascent. And if you combined it with an ANT+ wireless powermeter, like a PowerTap rear hub, you can also track power in watts and w/kg and see your current, average, and max. Power zone, average power zone, and max power zone. Peak power for 5 sec, 5 min, and 20 min. WKO+ metrics: training stress score, normalized power, and intensity factor. Use the downloadable Power Agent Software, and you'll be able to generate a variety of detailed reports of your workouts to analyze and track your progress or pinpoint weaknesses in your fitness.
You can manually adjust the resistance as you're riding by reaching down and twisting the yellow knob on the top tube so that you can tailor each workout to fit your needs for the day. If there's one reason why we love Cycleops' indoor bikes so much, it's that their 70lb flywheel simulates the momentum you'd develop at speed on the road -- it's the most road-like feel you can get indoors. And, yes, you can freewheel any time you feel like a break.
Why buy a CycleOps 200 Pro Indoor Cycle from Competitive Cyclist? The foremost reason is that we package and ship it via UPS in a customized box in a nearly ready to ride condition. It will be fully assembled by our team of professional mechanics just like we'd build a race bike. The only work you'll need to do is insert the seatpost and stem & dial it in to match the fit of your bike. You can do so without tools -- which is another benefit of the CycleOps Indoor Cycles: A husband and wife can share the same bike, since adjusting seat height and effective reach takes mere seconds. The seat height can range from 66 to 92cm from the center of the bottom bracket to the top of the saddle, of course this can vary if you change the saddle depending on model.The indoor cycle ships without pedals, so you can set it up just like your favorite road or mountain bike. We sell the CycleOps Indoor Cycles in a drop bar configuration (not the bullhorn bar you sometimes see) and it has two water bottle holders.
Please Note: Due to the size and weight of the package, a CycleOps Indoor Cycle is shipped via freight carrier only and is limited to the contiguous U.S. The cost to ship this item is $99.
