It's always a good idea to have your bike regularly inspected to make sure it's safe and functioning properly. If you bring your bike to your local REI bike shop, we can inspect your bike and let you know if any service is recommended.
Our product descriptions will tell you what is included with the particular trainer. Depending on the type of trainer you decide to get, for example, you may need to purchase and install a cassette for certain direct drive trainers where you take the rear wheel off and mount your bike directly on the trainer. Some of the other gear you may need will also depend on your particular bicycle and specific trainer.
If you have questions about specific trainers and bike compatibility, or need help picking out a trainer, you can stop by your local REI or you can schedule an appointment with one of our Virtual Outfitters.
At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
