With a Trakstand indoor-trainer, you can convert your comfort bike -- or practically any bike -- into a stationary exercise bike. Prices for indoor-trainer stands start around $100.

My daughter and I don't enjoy riding the Greenbelt trail from Massapequa to Bethpage when it becomes too cold.  We go to Bally's to work out in the colder weather, yet I was thinking that my nice bike is sitting in a shed all winter when it could be indoors getting some use.  I had no idea that conversion mounts were available. The thought occurred to me to build one. When I googled it there it was.  I would like to buy a used one due to budget limitations or build one.  We live a good life but we reduce all our expenses in order to manage living a happy and adventurous life on Long Island.  Does anyone know how to make a mount for a few dollars?  Appreciate all input.

Where can I purchase one of these bike conversion kits? I found one on a rummage sale for $3 and I want to get another one for my mother-in-law. Thanks. Meg
