You can now conveniently alternate gears just like you would on your road bike with the new Handlebar Shifters! Right and left Handlebar Shifters simulate front and rear sprockets just like your road bike. Introducing the new and improved Handlebar Shifters that simulate the same resistance change you would feel on your road bike. They are better than ever with convenient placement on the handlebars so you can stay focused on your ride without disrupting your workout each time you change your resistance. Our innovative engineers have designed the gear resistance to match that of your road bike—the left shifter adjusts resistance in the front sprockets while the right shifter adjusts resistance in the rear sprockets. With 24 different resistance levels you can adjust your ride by the slightest amount possible on an indoor cycle and develop more cardiovascular strength.
Built-In Power Meter

What the pros are saying
"The "Tour De France Trainer" is incredible because it has a very realistic road feel. In over 20 years of riding trainers, I've never ridden anything even close. My favorite features are the Google Maps iPhone application, and that the bike actually rotates up or down based on uphills and downhills. The "Tour De France Trainer" is by far the closest stationary bicycle to the road I've ever experienced! Five stars!"
Press for the TOUR de France Bike
"Valuable a conditioning tool as stationary bikes are, any avid cyclist will tell you that they're nowhere near as good as being out on the open road. One of the differences between real cycling and indoor training is the fact that when riders are on the road, the topography of the area determines the pedaling effort required. By contrast, when on a stationary bike, riders usually just vary their output as they feel like it. In an attempt to make indoor training more like the real thing, Pro-Form's Le Tour de France Indoor Cycle lets users choose or create real-world routes using Google Maps, then adjusts the angle of the riding platform to replicate the experience of riding up and down those roads.
