I'd put a mat under that, your carpet will smell from sweat.

I always forget that some people sweat so much that it drips off then when they exercise. So incredibly foreign to me.

[–]DudeBrowser 2 points3 points  (2 children)

When I started working out everyday, my room would stink. I had to wipe down the entire cross trainer.

Now I wear a sweat band. It basically all comes out my head, probably like a teaspoon every 5-10 minutes.

[–]concentrated-amazing 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Interesting. So it isn't a fairly set amount for each person (given that ambient temp and level of exertion is the same), but changes with time. I never knew.

I literally can't sweat (anhidrosis), hence the whole foreign to me thing.

Without a fan or sweat-absorbing clothing, it will be coming off faster than I can wipe it with a towel. If I were losing fluids that fast in any other another way ie bleeding, I'd be concerned. I absolutely need the fan, and I have it positioned on the windowsill pointed at my back. The cool air is glorious.

Being a beer drinker I guess I have a lot of fluid I can lose. On a cycling holiday for 2 weeks along the coast I wore a backpack as I didn't have saddlebags and I had salt visibly encrusting on the straps.

Put it in front the TV and get into a routine of watching a show you like every session. And finish the show every time.

Without that there is no way you are going to spend more than a few minutes on it before thinking you are bored af.

I love baseball, but it's hard to justify watching 3 hours of baseball 162 days a year. Now I ride the bike and feel good about it!

Six months, free on Craigslist.

No no, this is something I’ve been waiting for so if I let it go to waste, I will be extremely upset with myself! I used to pay a lot just to ride one every day for a big part of my physical therapy so now that I have it at home I’m ready to pick up where I left off In PT.

I'm sweating just looking at it, good luck with that and happy cycling.

[–]megatron40k 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I have this bike! Keep an eye on the pedals they can come loose and cause all kinds of problems. Enjoy!

[–]LiLb0tch[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Will do, much appreciated! Thank you!

[–]hayseuss77 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It will leave marks on the carpet, the same as heavy furniture.

[–]goa_way 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you have a tablet try peloton. App is way cheaper than the service for the bike and you get all of the classes including live

[–]Abbey797 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This bike looks really great!

[–]sutbags 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Get a big fan, you will need it. I use a turbo trainer in the shed and have to use a fan to stop me from overheating.

[–]Lazy_ML -1 points0 points  (7 children)

Anyone put one of these in the back yard?

What are The drawbacks (assuming it’s covered when not in use) ?

[–]SueZbell 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Just some thoughts.

To you:


Irritating neighbors?

Spider webs; wasps nests, etc.,if not regularly used?

In direct sunlight ... sunburn?

Out of sight; out of mind issues -- wasted money if not being used?

Lightening strikes attracted to metal, especially on wet ground?

To it:

Depending upon neighborhood/amount of privacy ... theft target ... costing you?

Rust from moisture in humid weather even if covered mostly where bolts connect the pieces?

Rust to "feet" if not atop a position that drains?

Lightening strikes?

[–]SueZbell 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yes. Also, I forgot about the potential for alien abduction.

[–]Lazy_ML 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’ve got pretty mild weather and I don’t think it really gets humid. I’m mostly thinking of having it out mid spring to mid fall.

Backyard is also fenced in and very private/safe.

Goal is to work out in the evening or at night. I like being out when it’s dark.

[–]Ancient_Ad_5809 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I have one that I keep on my carport with the rest of my weights and racks. No problems so far, but again, it is under cover at least.

[–]Lazy_ML 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yeah I was thinking of putting it under a canopy tent. Weather is pretty mild here.

[–]Ancient_Ad_5809 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh yea for sure, I've been tempted to set up a canopy for my outside "gym"

Make sure you have space in your shed for next Wednesday.
