    Cycling is for bicycling. It’d be best to ask about exercise equipment in exercise and fitness.

    With out knowing what one you have, there are two types,
    and they both work the same as what can be found on bike mag. trainers.
    1) The simplest ones change the resistance by moving a fixed magnet to change the resistance.
    2) The high end video interactive trainers (and treadmills) change the magnetic field changing the resistance. (These have to be plugged into an outlet to work.)

    The magnet isn’t a brake per say. It is a resistance device. The closer the magnet to the flywheel magnets (usually 3 or 4) the stronger the magnetic attraction — thus resistance. The positionable magnet has several steps (again 3 or 4) that preset the variable distance to the flywheel magnets. They are strong “Rare Earth” magnets. Yes the same system used in Mag Trainers for bicycles.
    Side note — if you get too curious immediately after using your mag …. Passing 2 magnets through the magnetic field produces heat. If you use it vigorously — enough heat to possibly burn skin when touched.

    Edit: Please forgive me J.M., for I am human …. (sobbing)… I confess, I had a weak moment. … I accept my punishment of riding a wal-mart bike on my next century. Mia copa.

    Dude, please tell me that youre heading to publish extra. I notice you havent written an additional blog for a while (Im just catching up myself). Your blog is just too important to be missed. Youve obtained so significantly to say, this kind of knowledge about this topic it would be a shame to see this weblog disappear. The internet needs you, man!
