Stay in biking shape this winter with the CycleOps Pro 300PT. It is designed to “look like a bike and ride like a bike." and features thePowerTap power-measuring hub, giving repeatable, calibrated measurements so you can plot your progress over time. The bike will measure cadence and estimate calorie burn as well, with a big, informative display to tell you the numbers and keep time. Included is the PowerTap software on a CD for analyzing your workouts in detail as well as the manual. (Manual can be downloaded at https://manualsbrain.com/en/manuals/791643/ but I have a paper copy.)

NOTE: An HRM strap is NOT included.

The Pro 300PT is the massive range and ease of adjustability. It comes with a set of bullhorn-type bars with built in aero extensions, which are wrapped in dense foam for a nice and durable grip. So a wide range of hand positions are possible. The ride position can be finely tuned to match your specifications, with fore/aft and up/down adjustment on the saddle and bars, and the whole thing is superbly built and very stable.

Unlike the wide and painful cushy saddles found on many indoor bikes, the saddle is a racing type saddle mounted on a seatpost that can very easily adjust saddle height and fore-aft with the use of two simple levers. All of the adjustments on the bike are done with quick-release style clamps, such that no tools of any kind are required. Along with the graduated markings etched on the seatpost and handlebars, keeping records of proper position and adjusting the ergometer for different riders is a breeze.

The mechanical adjustment of resistance is very simply done by turning the sturdy dial at the end of the handlebar. The left brake lever that lets you stop the massive flywheel quickly

Pedals are fitted with delta clips.

The ride feel is excellent, with the heavy flywheel giving a smooth workout and the micro-adjustable resistance unit capable of some heavy drag if you're training for a big climb. Spin-up and spin-down is pretty realistic, thanks to the massive flywheel, and the resistance is also pretty gradual and similar to the road. There are no gears with the Pro 300PT, so it’s a “fixed” gear bike in terms of direct drive.
