A flywheel spinning bike
The size of the flywheel shown in Kg, in the market you will find models ranging from 14-25 Kg. Higher harder to have to make and keep pedaling cadence. If your training volume is not high, we recommend you do not abuse the weight. However if you are already an experienced rider, you can use more weight.
To have a good sense of pedaling, and to exercise certain guarantees we recommend models that have at least 16kg flywheel.
It is responsible for generating the steering movement of inertia, when you pedal. You can find two types of transmission:
• Chain: This type of transmission is usually the most used because it is more durable. Against him we could say that is a little noisy, but if the bike is good, would not necessarily bother. If you use music to train you should not notice it. The maintenance required is very basic, just need to grease it every so often.
• Belt: This type of transmission is quieter than the last. Its disadvantage is that it suffers more wear than a string. With time and use you must make changes in the chain. This is no problem; just have to make sure that the manufacturer replacement parts.

If you prefer not to use clipless pedals, we recommend you to watch the pedals have a broad platform. Since the pedals with narrow platform, you cannot transmit well the outside, and also generate discomfort in the foot.
If your workouts do not exceed 45 minutes may not be very relevant to use clipless pedals. After 45 minutes, if you recommend to include in your spinning bike
