Goodbye Rouvy Tuesday

: In Part-2 of our series on Rouvy, we explore virtual rides, a prime feature of this stationary platform.

ERG Mode in Zwift

: Do you find it hard to hang in Slowzwift Structured Training Events? Here's a secret.

Trainerroad, One Year In

: Last year I interviewed Sika Henry, who I pretty much forced to use TR for 6 weeks. Here's my 1-year checkup. (Isn't that a truer test?)

Gettin' Groovy with Rouvy - Part 1: Getting Started

: Stationary is the hottest segment in non-motorized cycling. Rouvy is yet another stationary brand you should know about.

Zwift: A Potent Tool for Training

: Virtual racing is Blah, Blah, Blah for many of you. You’re just interested in Zwift’s workout mode. So let’s get to it.

Trainerroad's Workout Calendar

: It's for triathletes and cyclists who want a powerful workout organizer, but not the ardency required of the Training Peaks user.

Zwift: Let's Dance!

: What about the social aspect of riding a bike? Zwift is or can be (among other things) a Massively Multiplayer Online Game.

CycleOps H2, Fifteen Rides In

: After dozens of hours on both CycleOps Hammer and H2, here's my long term review, with an emphasis on the new H2.

It's Game On With Zwift

: Zwift is a game. Or a training tool. It's also a virtual community, like Westworld, except there's real people behind every avatar.

Zwift: The Deeper Dive

: Zwift is not hard to join; not hard to commence; but it’ll take you a good while to plumb its depths. Let's plumb its (shallow) depths.

Zwift: Welcome to Watopia

: Let’s get Zwift installed and configured using virtual power, so you can ride in the Zwift virtual world easily and without big expense.

Feelin' Rouvy

: Rouvy is about to join Zwift and others by offering a multi-rider experience

Revised, Expanded Zwift Rides

: We changing one of our Slowtwitch Zwift rides and adding a third.

Slowtwitch's Pinball Wizard

: Lionel Sanders was trading punches with... Matt Gardiner? He's a full time CPA, not a bike racer, but sure plays a mean pinball.

Zwift Foibles

: I am sort of computer dyslexic. If you’re like me what I write below might resonate and make your Zwifting a little easier to wrangle.

How Does the Latest KICKR Compare?

: Slowtwitch just announced its second weekly Zwift event. How about a smart trainer? After several months on the KICKR 2017, here's our view.

It's the Hilly Vanilli, SlowZwifters 2nd Weekly Ride

: If you build it they will Zwift. Slowtwitch weekly ride #2 will take place on Thursdays, and this is a little different than the Tuesday weekly event.

Slowtwitchers Take On Sufferlandria

: At least 14 Slowtwitchers completed the week long 799 minutes of the 6th annual Tour of Sufferlandria.

How a Woodway treadmill became a reality

: Our editor-at-large Herbert Krabel had been lusting for a Woodway treadmill ever since he experienced one of them at the NY Giants training center, but the $12,000 price tag was a massive hurdle.

The Jewel in Racermate's Crown Up for Sale

: Computrainer is gone, the marine and aviation products are gone or soon will be, and Velotron is now on the block. Interested?

Turbo Trainers and Rollers

: All dumb trainers needed was a little remedial help. Now you can Zwift, TrainerRoad, PerfPro, FulGaz, for cheap, cheap, cheap.

Elite Direto

: It may not the most feature-rich, nor the quietest, nor perhaps the smoothest, but it is certainly a bang-for- buck smart trainer finalist.

Cobb's Move Into Stationary

: This company, best known for its saddles, is either lucky or smart or both, because it's added stationary to its offerings.

CycleOps Hammer: Long Term Review

: Stable and sturdy. Great price at $1199. Power accuracy not on par with some direct-drive smart trainers. Smooth road feel compensates.

A Newbie Tackles TrainerRoad

: Clamping my bike up to a CycleOps Fluid 2 Trainer, pedaling while dying of boredom, was my indoor riding experience.
