Transform your regular bicycle into a training bike for those days when you want to exercise at home. The Indoor Bike Training Machine by gadgets masters Thanko is a simple but effective way to convert your bicycle simply by attaching the machine to the back wheel.
The noise generated is about on par with that of a vacuum cleaner, meaning you probably won't disturb your neighbors. It should also fit most bikes, regular or road models. Just affix it your back wheel and slip the base under your front wheel - and then you are ready to go!
Well, you won't be "going" anywhere but you will be able to cycle indoors to your heart's (and body's) content. This is designed especially for people (as many do in Japan) who live in big cities with bikes but cannot always get to the gym or take their two wheels out for a proper spin.
While similar training conversion equipments do exist already, this is a neat, new and easy-to-use take on a clever idea. And for ease of storage it also folds up when not in use.
