This cycle trainer cannot be rode standing up, which makes it a bit less functional and comfortable for some users since the trainer can only be used when sit on the seat. The bike can be operated very smoothly with the super-heavy 40 pound flywheel. The pedals contain grips and toe cages to help keep your feet from slipping off pedals when riding. The bike has a 7 inch cushion seat. While the size of the seat is nice, the seat is somewhat uncomfortable despite the cushion.
