It’s coming up on that time of year (at least here in Babylon on the Potomac) when the weather is getting colder (and wetter) which means indoor riding season. Typically, that means putting my bike on a smart trainer — which I’ve done for the past several winters. But this winter I get to do something different … I’ll be riding a smart bike: the new Wahoo KICKR BIKE SHIFT. This is the second smart bike in Wahoo’s lineup — the first being the KICKR BIKE . There are two big differences between the two bikes. The first is that KICKR BIKE SHIFT doesn’t have up-and-down movement to simulate climbing and descending. The second is that the KICKR BIKE SHIFT costs $1,000 less. You’ll have to decide for yourself if having the bike tilt up and down is worth the extra $$$. Here are the KICKR BIKE SHIFT features and specs per Wahoo: Customized fit, shifting and gearing to match your outdoor bike.
