First,¬†you¬†must¬†know¬†that¬†the¬†mechanism¬†design¬†of¬†an¬†exercise¬†bike¬†affects¬†the¬†fitness¬†experience.¬†Exercise¬†ability,¬†workout¬†customisation,¬†rider¬†safety‚Ķ¬†everything¬†is¬†impacted¬†by¬†the¬†system¬†used¬†by¬†your¬†bike.¬† Let‚Äôs¬†cut¬†to¬†the¬†chase.¬†You¬†need¬†to¬†decide¬†between¬†a¬†Fixed-Gear¬†or¬†a¬†Freewheel¬†system.¬†¬† Fixed-Gear¬†Exercise¬†Bikes‚Ķ¬†Not¬†Always¬†the¬†Right¬†Fit. How¬†Does¬†a¬†Fixed-Gear¬†System¬†Work? First¬†of¬†all,¬†it‚Äôs¬†important¬†to¬†recognise¬†that¬†a¬†Fixed-Gear¬†system¬†is¬†the¬†most¬†common¬†design¬†for¬†exercise¬†bikes.¬†These¬†bikes¬†are¬†designed¬†with¬†the¬†pedals¬†directly¬†connected¬†to¬†the¬†flywheel.¬†Simply¬†put‚Ķ¬†the¬†rider‚Äôs¬†pedalling¬†is¬†what¬†powers¬†the¬†back¬†wheel.¬†This¬†connection¬†creates¬†ride¬†inertia,¬†the¬†pedals¬†continue¬†to¬†spin¬†even¬†when¬†you¬†stop¬†putting¬†additional¬†force,¬†which¬†translates¬†to¬†a¬†smooth¬†pedalling¬†experience. Fixed-Gear‚Ķ¬†Not¬†for¬†Everybody. For¬†professional-level¬†bikers¬†seeking¬†to¬†train¬†their¬†resistance-control¬†ability¬†or¬†cadence,¬†the¬†Fixed-Gear¬†system¬†design¬†may¬†be¬†preferred.¬†More¬†intensive¬†users¬†may¬†also¬†prefer¬†Fixed-Gear¬†because¬†it¬†allows¬†for¬†more¬†rhythmic¬†flow,¬†or¬†cadence-based¬†training.¬†Likewise,¬†Fixed-Gear¬†designed¬†bikes¬†are¬†more¬†difficult¬†to¬†slow¬†down¬†once¬†cadence,¬†or¬†pedalling¬†rate,¬†increases! The¬†Problems¬†with¬†Fixed-Gear! Critics¬†of¬†the¬†Fixed-Gear¬†system¬†have¬†a¬†point¬†when¬†they¬†say,¬†‚ÄúDon‚Äôt¬†let¬†the¬†bike¬†ride¬†you.‚Ä̬†That¬†is,¬†once¬†the¬†rider¬†is¬†spinning¬†at¬†high¬†cadence,¬†and¬†with¬†insufficient¬†resistance,¬†a¬†Fixed-Gear¬†mechanism¬†may¬†quickly¬†achieve¬†inertia¬†and¬†keep¬†you¬†spinning¬†without¬†having¬†you¬†put¬†in¬†much¬†work.¬†The¬†rider¬†might¬†experience¬†increase¬†in¬†heart¬†rate,¬†getting¬†sweaty¬†and¬†mistaken¬†that¬†as¬†a¬†good¬†workout¬†session.¬†However,¬†your¬†higher¬†heart¬†rate¬†is¬†not¬†an¬†indication¬†of¬†providing¬†a¬†full¬†enough¬†workout,¬†it¬†is¬†more¬†important¬†to¬†measure¬†the¬†actual¬†power¬†output¬†instead.¬† The¬†other¬†major¬†concern¬†with¬†Fixed-Gear¬†mechanisms¬†is¬†rider¬†safety.¬†As¬†cycling¬†at¬†high¬†speed¬†or¬†cadence,¬†nonprofessional¬†and¬†leisurely¬†exercisers¬†could¬†be¬†injured¬†as¬†the¬†pedals¬†continue¬†to¬†spin¬†fast¬†even¬†if¬†you¬†stop¬†pedaling. Freewheel¬†Bikes‚Ķ¬†Smart,¬†Safe,¬†and¬†Simple-to-Use.¬† The¬†‚ÄúSmart‚Ä̬†Freewheel¬†Exercise¬†Bike¬†Experience Freewheel¬†mechanisms¬†are¬†a¬†rare¬†find¬†in¬†the¬†indoor¬†exercise¬†bike¬†market,¬†but¬†the¬†good¬†news¬†is¬†that¬†they¬†do¬†indeed¬†exist!¬†Similar¬†to¬†riding¬†a¬†standard¬†outdoor¬†bicycle,¬†Freewheel,¬†or¬†‚ÄúSmart¬†Release,‚Ä̬†exercise¬†bikes¬†allow¬†the¬†rider¬†to¬†'coast'¬†and¬†not¬†having¬†to¬†worry¬†about¬†the¬†continued¬†swinging¬†of¬†pedals¬†even¬†when¬†coming¬†to¬†a¬†sudden¬†stop.¬†The¬†momentum¬†and¬†cadence¬†of¬†Freewheel¬†systems¬†rely¬†entirely¬†on¬†the¬†pedalling¬†preference¬†of¬†the¬†rider. Freewheel¬†Design¬†is¬†a¬†Safer¬†and¬†More¬†Effective¬†Bet¬† Riders¬†of¬†Freewheel¬†systems¬†are¬†able¬†to¬†pedal¬†as¬†they¬†wish,¬†instead¬†of¬†being¬†dragged¬†along¬†by¬†the¬†wheel.¬†The¬†Freewheel¬†exercise¬†bike¬†design¬†allows¬†for¬†a¬†smoother,¬†freer,¬†more¬†natural¬†riding¬†experience.¬†Likewise,¬†because¬†Freewheel¬†allows¬†for¬†riders¬†to¬†alter¬†their¬†cadence¬†instantly,¬†this¬†provides¬†better¬†workout¬†results¬†for¬†casual¬†users.¬†When¬†coupled¬†with¬†Artificial¬†Intelligence¬†and¬†resistance-tech,¬†smart¬†Freewheel¬†designed¬†bikes¬†offer¬†more¬†engaging¬†exercise¬†benefits;¬†which¬†is¬†highly¬†effective¬†for¬†fans¬†of¬†outdoor¬†biking¬†or¬†FTP¬†(Functional¬†Threshold¬†Power)¬†Training.¬† As¬†opposed¬†to¬†other¬†bike¬†designs,¬†Freewheel¬†systems¬†remove¬†the¬†risk¬†of¬†injuries¬†incurred¬†while¬†pedalling¬†too¬†quickly.¬†This¬†is¬†because¬†when¬†the¬†rider¬†stops¬†moving¬†their¬†legs,¬†the¬†pedals¬†stop¬†too! And¬†the¬†Winner¬†is‚Ķ¬†Freewheel! For¬†most¬†casual¬†riders,¬†the¬†smarter¬†and¬†safer¬†indoor¬†exercise¬†bike¬†design¬†is¬†definitely¬†the¬†Freewheel.¬†The¬†Freewheel¬†system¬†is¬†much¬†more¬†practical¬†for¬†riders¬†wishing¬†to¬†exercise¬†at¬†their¬†preferred¬†pedalling¬†pace¬†and¬†intensity.¬†Whether¬†you‚Äôre¬†revving¬†up¬†for¬†a¬†power¬†ride¬†or¬†gently¬†coasting¬†along,¬†the¬†Freewheel¬†design¬†can¬†accommodate¬†your¬†workout¬†needs. ¬†
