CycleOps 300 Pro Indoor Cycle -

The CycleOps 300 Pro Indoor Cycle solves a myriad of challenges to training effectively indoors. It's true that rollers offer a natural ride feel, and are a little more engaging than a rear wheel trainer, but frankly, it's a bear to sprint on them. On the other side of the coin, trainers allow heavy sprint training, or even to chock the front wheel higher in order to simulate climbing intervals, but they awkwardly immobilize the rear triangle of the bike that would otherwise move naturally during out-of-the-saddle efforts. These ailments simply stress the functionality of the 300 Pro. And not only does it allow all of the aforementioned efforts, but it also feels road-like, it provides a wealth of data, and it saves your beloved race bike from the rigors of indoor use.

This 300 Pro Indoor Cycle comes with the CycleOps Joule 2.0 cycling computer as standard equipment, along with a PowerTap power meter in the rear flywheel. This equipment is the differentiates it from the 200 Pro. With the power readings, you'll get accurate digital feedback to know exactly what your effort is, not just what it feels like. The Joule 2.0 uses ANT+ technology to communicate wirelessly to the PowerTap hub. And if you choose to use the Joule 2.0 on your bike outdoors, it will also communicate with any other ANT+ powermeter and/or cadence and speed sensors. However, riding your bike with the Joule and no powermeter will still enable you to track every detail of your ride, save for the power data. Please Note: This particular PowerTap in the rear flywheel operates on a narrow portion of the frequency range within the full breadth of ANT+. This means that, even though the Joule 2.0 is easily used to detect other powermeters, you may or may not be able to substitute another ANT+ CPU to read your power data on the 300 Pro Indoor Cycle.

With the Joule, though, you can track a variety of information as you ride. In real time, you'll view your power in watts and w/kg and see your current, average, and max. For interval training, you'll find the power zone, average power zone, and max power zones to be effective data gathering. For peak power, you can view data in five second, five minutes, and twenty minute increments. You'll also gain access to WKO+ metrics like training stress score, normalized power, and intensity factor. Work is measured in kilojoules and kilojoules per hour for the power minded, and also in calories for the days where you just want a rewarding workout. Other useful readings include your current, average, and max cadence and heart rate. As for climbing, you can view your current gradient and current altitude and how long and high your total ascent has been. And of course, Joule displays the time of day, your distance, and how long you've been in the saddle. Another great feature is the ability to store a good bit of data on the Joule 2.0 CPU before having to download it to your computer. On a personal note, we've saved up to 20 rides before doing a data dump. And to make life easier, the CPU accepts a Micro SD card to expand the storage capacity.

The 300 Pro doesn't have Controlled Resistance Technology like the 400 Pro, therefore, it won't conduct the resistance per a custom or saved ride in the Joule 2.0. Instead, it's up to you to reach down to the resistance knob on the top tube, and then twist for more or less resistance. But, if you use the downloadable Power Agent Software, you'll be able to generate a variety of detailed reports of your workouts to analyze and track your progress. And while the computer technology is fantastic, if there's one reason why we love Cycleops' indoor bikes so much, it's that the 70lb flywheel simulates the momentum you'd develop at speed on the road. Basically, it's the most road-like feel that you can get indoors. And yes, you can freewheel any time that you feel like a break.

So, you've heard why you should get a CycleOps 300 Pro Indoor Cycle, but you might be asking yourself why you should get it 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 halo race bike. The only work that you'll need to do is insert the seatpost and stem, and then dial it in to match the fit of your bike. You can do this 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 that you sometimes see), and it has two water bottle holders for workout hydration.

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 $175.

Solid Bike

I'm not a big fan of indoor cycling, but when the weather is bad or the days too short, it's nice to know there is a good indoor option.

The CycleOps 300 is an incredibly robust piece of exercise equipment. I've had mine for a couple of years and have logged hundreds of hours on it. The bike is very heavy so getting it up stairs or moving it around in tight spaces can be a challenge, but the weight is a boon once it's in location as it helps make this the most stable training bike I've ridden.

The bike is easy to adjust to mimic your preferred road or tri bike fit. The heavy flywheel gives a very "road-like" feel and allows me to work on my pedaql stroke with things like one legged drills that simulate real road drills. The bike is relatively quiet, quieter than any other trainer I've ridden.

Some may think it's better or cheaper to ride your road bike indoors on a trainer. For casual use or as a pre-race warm-up, portable trainers can be very useful, but if you're going to be spending a lot of time indoors it makes sense to consider a dedicated trainer. Mine is starting to show some wear and tear from sweat and heavy use, but it still works great and I can only imagine how beat up my road bike would be if I'd spent my indoor riding time on it.

The PowerTap is an invaluable tool if you're serious about hitting specific training targets or want to compare indoor and outdoor workouts. I ride with a PowerTap hub on my road bike and find the data comparable between both. One slight beef I have is that the power data from the CycleOps indoor trainer does not work with my existing Garmin computer so it's a bit harder to compare workouts in some apps.

If you care about looks, be sure to wipe down the bike after use just like you would take care of your road bike.

Very Solid

Very solid bike and infinitely adjustable. One of the few indoor bikes that I could set up exactly like my Tri bike...(clip on tri bars work well). Out of saddle sprints are very stable, and resistance setting is the easiest I've used. Stop pedaling and the pedals stop just like a free wheel bike....this I believe is good for the serious cyclist but some may not like it. There is no flywheel assist like many of the bikes in indoor cycling classes. The Power Tap is a wonderful addition and is another reason I bought this bike. Not looking forward to the indoor season much, but excited to be on some good equipment.

love it!

This is the same bike I have been using in my spin classes and I am training based on zones. the power meter allows long comfortable and efficient training since you can train exactly where you need to train.

I only wish it came with peddles :(

but since I am new to biking and all the costs associated with everything it should be no surprise.

Negative Reviews:

Do not buy! See the photos below.

It is a a product that I enjoyed using until the paint became permanently damaged by sweat. As you can see in the attached photos, the machine looks terrible and unclean. I have never seen exercise equipment that is irreversibly stained by sweat, particularly at this price. The warranty expressly covers appearance, but Cycleops did not honor it. I made these comments in a review on the Cycleops web site, but they deleted them! If you buy this machine you will be disappointed.
