No, no, I didn't replace my old trainer. He's still just as awesome, hot and hilarious.
I got a bike trainer!
It came in a few pieces.
But I'm pretty handy, so I put it together all by myself.
Except one part. The skewer on my bike needed to be swapped out for a skewer that fit the trainer.
Except, the stupid release lever on my skewer was too tight. I could not, for the life of me, get it to budge.
There wasn't much I could do. Except take a picture of myself in my pajamas.
My husband came to my rescue with his big, strong man hands. All set to go!
Then it was time to set up a way to track how fast I was going. But, I took one look at the instructions, and gave up for the night.
Last night I drug my brother over to help.
While I laughed at the packaging. "California USA only." Guess I won't be dragging my trainer to Mexico.
The best thing about a bike trainer is I can look at a map while biking if I get lost.
Actually, I was trying to read the instructions for the cyclocomputer. I never got it working completely. The computer part won't communicate with the sensor part unless they're a few inches apart. I think it's a battery issue, but the batteries are pretty standard.
Sky wanted to take a picture of me looking "serious," but then she started singing "Eye of the Tiger," so this is me laughing on the trainer.
This is my srs bsn picture.
I can still use the trainer (and did, for a while, while we tried to figure out the sensor issue). It uses wind resistance, so it's loud, but it's a while noise, so it doesn't bother me.
And, I won't be keeping it in its current location. As much as I want to stare at my back door, I'd rather watch tv while on the bike.
I'm looking forward to mixing up my cardio, since I'm still not too fond of running right now. I'll fall back in love with it eventually, I know. We're just on a break right now.
This is probably the most boring post I've ever posted. Look, I got something I haven't used yet! Exciting!
Whatever. Deal with it.
