With the LeMond Fitness G-force UT upright bike, you don’t have to make yourself fit the bike; it fits you! The seat and handlebars are equipped with vertical and fore/aft micro-adjustability and the ergonomic handlebars provide multiple hand positions, including aero bars for training in time-trial mode. You can also install your own seat and pedals if you prefer. Plus, the super-stable G-Force lets you ride as hard as you want in or out of the saddle, and its narrow pedal spacing feels just like a standard bicycle. It also boasts a self-power generating system and handy transport wheels so you can easily move it where you need it. You'll love the 20 levels of smooth, quiet resistance with the enormous range of 30 to 1,200 watts. And that wattage is displayed along with time, distance, heart rate, and RPM on the workout console. You’ll also enjoy the 13 built-in, diverse programs, including 3 efficient heart-rate control workouts and 6 invigorating LeMond Training profiles. This great bike even includes a USB memory stick and WKO Lite Personal Training CD, letting you download your exercise data to your computer, create your own training log, and use the custom 4-week workout programs to enhance fitness, lose weight and improve athletic performance.

Fitness equipment typically offers heart-rate measurement, which is great for efficient weight loss, improving fitness for your favorite sport, exercising safely, and bettering your general cardiovascular health. Heart rate is monitored by contact and/or wireless telemetry. While the latter is considered more accurate, each system has advantages. Here’s a quick primer.
Contact heart-rate monitoring utilizes hand sensors in the handrail or handlebar. You grip the sensors for several seconds and your heart rate is shown on the console display in beats per minute. Contact heart rate is a good choice if you don’t have or don’t like to wear a heart-rate chest strap.
Wireless telemetry heart-rate monitoring utilizes a chest strap that you wear that reads your heart rate and transmits a radio frequency to show your heart rate on the machine’s console display. In addition to being more accurate, the wireless system is hands-free, and it allows your heart rate to be constantly displayed (since it doesn’t rely on sensors that you have to hold). This constant monitoring is especially useful for heart-rate control programs, in which the exercise equipment makes intensity adjustments to maintain or vary your heart rate at particular training zones.
