I've been using this for the past few weeks. It makes a HUGE difference is my ability to handle the bike and toss it from side to side.:thumbsup:

This is just as valuable as the suspension work I got done.

you couldnt be more right - i like the elliptical - i can really tell the difference on long rides - i feel better as the ride goes on.

I totally agree as well. I've finally gotten back into going to the gym. It makes a huge improvement for me on the trail, since I am still learning how to ride efficiently. I need the extra strength and energy to expend throwing the bike around.

I have a 900km trail ride coming up next week so I'm trying to condition myself a bit for that. Can't wait.

I couldn't agree more, I've been running around 15 miles a week and lifting weights too since Jan. It's made a HUGE difference in everything, not just riding. The guys I ride with are huffing and puffing when we stop and I'm not even winded. It's a nice change.......

I finish concrete for a living...always thought the WR felt light!!!

I'm a bricklayer and I know what you mean. I HAVE started kind-of "power walking" on our treadmill. I could bearly get 2 miles a week ago and now I get to 3 with feeling very tired. The bike has never made me tired though. I've literally stayed on it for 2 hours straight averaging half throttle and felt fine when I got off. That was 50 pounds ago.
