The FreeMotion S11.9 Indoor Cycle and Stages Indoor Cycling education were a relative unknown to many of us before our 2011 ICI/PRO conference. Since then they've really gained a foothold in this market, becoming a solid choice for any club or studio looking to invest in power.
The S11.X series featured the first Indoor Cycle offering measured power/watts through an innovative strain gauge located in the left-hand crank-arm. The early bikes featured a conventional chain drive - which is a bit noisy compared to other brands. Now FreeMotion offers an optional belt drive (Gates Carbon) that eliminates 90% of any gear train noise, while still communicating the familiar feel of a standard bicycle chain.
