When should I wear a bike trainer?
The average American spends an average of $2,200 on bike training each year, according to a study by the U.S. Consumer Federation of America (CFA).
That’s far more than the average person spends on other goods and services.
And the bike trainer is no exception.
“Bike trainers are often expensive, because they’re expensive to buy and use,” said Chris O’Leary, CFA vice president of consumer policy and advocacy.
“And it can also be dangerous for your health.”
The cost of training your bike is also likely to be a big factor in why many people are reluctant to wear one, especially if they want to be able to do some basic maintenance on their bikes, O’Malley said.
O’Keefe said it’s important to train your bike to keep your joints healthy, so that when you need it, you’re ready.
The best way to do that is to train for a long time, he said.
“When you do it over and over again, the muscles grow and develop, and that’s when you’re really good,” O’Dea said.
It’s also important to remember that training for the wrong reasons can cause injuries, and it can make it hard to maintain the right kind of muscles for a given task, Odea said, adding that the trainer should never be a replacement for a proper workout routine.
It may be possible to use a bike for everyday chores like cleaning and washing dishes, but it’s not recommended.
It can be dangerous to use the same trainer for longer, so a more traditional training method, like walking, is better, Odua said
