The inevitable is happening. Temperatures are dropping just a little bit more each day, leaves are changing and falling, and you're digging through your cold weather kit for additional layers for rides. Eventually, more rides will start taking place in your pain cave instead of out on the roads, and while we enjoy riding to old race footage and motivating music, it's really time to get the most out of your indoor sessions. So if you're stuck inside riding, you might as well invest in something like the Kinetic Rock and Roll Smart 2 Trainer and enjoy the benefits of a realistic ride feel and the ability to tap into virtual training apps. Kinetic is one of the bigger names in bike trainers for a reason, and the brand aims to provide the most realistic road feel possible when creating the fluid trainer. A fluid resistance unit helps simulate pedaling on the open roads and its specially designed frame allows the bike to sway to and fro giving you the same sensation as climbing, without requiring you to constantly stay balanced the way you do on rollers. As you hit those intervals, a beefy steel roller with a larger-than-average diameter helps minimize wear on your tire, while a similarly robust flywheel and stable frame with large rubber feet keep the unit in place. Kinetic designed the system to dissipate heat properly with large cooling fins on the fluid resistance unit. The fluid provides progressive resistance while remaining extremely quiet. Lastly, the dual-band inRide 3 sensor calculates power and transmits it wirelessly to your bike computer, phone, tablet, or home computer providing you with ride data and the ability to integrate with apps like Zwift, TrainerRoad, Sufferfest, and others.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
