- Just seen a guy on an ElliptiGo – WTF?
If you put a saddle on it, & perhaps some kind of rotating device below the saddle that you could turn using something like pedals, & then connect the roating device to the rear weel to add drive, just thinking out aloud here, but I think a chain would be good for this.
Then it would probably be OK.Posted 4 years agoMrs ToastMember
The first one, Kimbers! My knees are knackered so I can’t run, so it’d be nice to have some other form of exercise other than biking! 😛
Plus, it’s nichetacular! I’m too short to really get into 29ers, the aforementioned knackered knees rule out singlespeeding (and fully rigids), and I’m too cheap to invest in 650b as it’s not really much different from 26″.Posted 4 years agosidcoMember
The ElliptiGO is aimed at runners, allowing them to train for longer, without the impact damage on their joints (knees & Hips). They’re not really intended as a bike alternative – though for those cyclists with knee issues or who find cycling uncomfortable, they can be a useful alternative.Posted 4 years ago
What they can offer is give a very intensive workout – so they are a good cross trainer, and will be suitable for cyclists who want to increase their fitness.
For short commutes, they would be good – the ‘standing’ position gives excellent visibilty for and of you – but for longer distance commutes, you’ll need a shower at work!
I will be attempting the Manchester 100 on mine next weekend.
