Do not let your bike collect dust during the coronavirus lockdown or social distancing rules. There are plenty of stands on the market for you to mount your bike on, so you can ride in your living room. Some even have virtual links so you feel like you are cruising on a real course.
Elite Tuno Power
The Tuno is easy to fold up and store. But most importantly, it offers more resistance than most other bike stands. A number of reviewers said that, compared to other stands, they could up the resistance so they could pedal much harder. They also noted it is very quiet.
Saris CycleOps Fluid2
Users commented just how easy this stand was to set up. What’s more, you can link it to online programmes like Zwift and TrainerRoad so it feels like you are riding in the great outdoors, while monitoring your progress. The resistance will give you a good workout.
Blackburn Mag 6
The first time you assemble the Blackburn, it’s a bit tricky. But your patience is worth it. It folds up and stores away easily.
Users mentioned it was one of the quietest training stands they had used, and the resistance was good and alterable.
Conquer Fluid Bike Trainer
The Conquer is easy to set up and very quiet to use. It is great for replicating long, flat roads, but some reviewers noted the resistance is not quite enough for uphill rides.
It is stable and durable, so will last a long time as you get fitter and stronger, not needing to replace it.
Tacx Neo Smart Direct Driver
The Tacx feels as close to riding on a road as you can get from an indoor bike stand. It does this by having a mount that requires you to remove your rear wheel and attach the back axle. This makes it a bit more complicated to set up, but you benefit from the feel. It is quiet and has plenty of resistance for all your training needs. You can connect it to the likes of Zwift too, so you can monitor your progress.
