The "Tour De France Trainer" is incredible because it has a very realistic road feel. In over 20 years of riding trainers, I've never ridden anything even close. My favorite features are the Google Maps iPhone application, and that the bike actually rotates up or down based on uphills and downhills. The "Tour De France Trainer" is by far the closest stationary bicycle to the road I've ever experienced! Five stars!
After winning the Ironman Hawaii World Championships again, I shifted my focus on putting myself back on the australian Olympic Team for London. I was told this was an impossible dream and that finding the power and speed to match guys half my age was simply a midlife crisis. I grabbed myself a TDF bike and used set programs to look at developing the strength, speed and power that would be necessary to race at the speeds necessary to win Olympic medals again. At 38 years of age I was told "impossible", "can't be done" and "no chance" Thanks to the TDF bike and the specific indoor sets we could control, we achieved the impossible and qualified for the Olympic Shadow squad. It is without question the best way to get the specific results you are looking for.
Valuable a conditioning tool as stationary bikes are, any avid cyclist will tell you that they're nowhere near as good as being out on the open road. One of the differences between real cycling and indoor training is the fact that when riders are on the road, the topography of the area determines the pedaling effort required. By contrast, when on a stationary bike, riders usually just vary their output as they feel like it. In an attempt to make indoor training more like the real thing, Pro-Form's Le Tour de France Indoor Cycle lets users choose or create real-world routes using Google Maps, then adjusts the angle of the riding platform to replicate the experience of riding up and down those roads.
