Minoura LR760 LiveRide Indoor Bicycle Trainer Review

he Minoura LR760 LiveRide indoor bicycle trainer is made by Minoura who produces high end Japanese cycling accessories. Minoura has over 150 products on Amazon and other stockists include wiggle.com, Evans Cycles and many other chain bicycle stores.

Description

The Minoura LR760 trainer uses magnetic resistance to provide the resistance for the rider and it specializes in using dual neodymium magnets which give up to 13 different resistance levels. This trainer also comes with a remote shifter to allow the rider to adjust the resistance while staying on the bike whereas some other units require you to demount and adjust at the base.

The unit is super quiet and ultra-smooth This trainer is much quieter than its counterparts. It also boasts the top power of 640W at 25 miles per hour which is fast for an indoor trainer with a high power output. It also is adjustable to allow the user to change the bikes that they are training. Also it has the ability to transfer data vie Bluetooth to compatible devices to track your training.

The main product features are:

Remote shifter for increasing magnetic resistance

Quiet and smooth performance
640w at 25mph
6lb flywheel for sturdy performance
Price Range

The LR760 trainer is at the high end of the indoor bike trainer market priced in the region of $330 to $380. This is much higher than the average which means this trainer is definitely suited to the serious rider who will use it almost on a daily basis.

There is one defining factor that makes this indoor trainer stand out for me which is the trainer’s ability to transmit the information from your training to your device using ANT or Bluetooth. This is a great tool for an advanced rider to track their power output over a long distance, especially when training for a race or competition. Secondly this unit looks great, it certainly looks like a $300 trainer with the black white and red looking very professional and top of the range.

The remote shifter is a great advantage to have on any trainer but having 13 different settings gives a huge range to the level of resistance allowing the user to determine the level of their training. Also the ability to withstand a power output of 640w at a high speed allows a rider to actually use the trainer for performance gains rather than as a hobby.

The main dislike about the Minoura LR760 is the price. It is a huge price for an indoor trainer and would put off many buyers, mainly because an indoor trainer is usually just for rainy days or bad weather and for this price you would expect to be using it on a more long term basis. But you do get what you pay for.

Another negative that comes out of the review is the width of the unit is quite narrow which makes it look and feel slightly like it may tip over which could be a problem for larger riders.

I give this indoor bike trainer a 4 out of 5 stars
