This Stationary bike with cooling that can increase the your total workout output by 10 times over stationary bikes without significant direct wind cooling. Operator adjustment of cooling fan allows warming up without fan, and then increasing wind as desired.
The cooling fan is powered by pedaling of direct drive electric generator, with surplus energy to operate electronic devices and charge batteries.
The bike is quiet allowing hearing of electronic devices. An amplified speaker is also provided in the center of the fan so the sound is carried to the user by the fan, instead of the fan interfering with the sound.
Some characteristics of this human electrical generator:
Pavlovian short term reward, Capacitor Storage with time remaining to shut down
Loss of Cooling from inadequate generation = motivation
Loss of entertainment and distraction from inadequate generation = motivation
Long term Reward
Accomplishing something useful, electricity generation
Off Grid reserve power
At the moment it is only available as a rental with a security deposit, in Southern California area. Some time in the future it could be sold and shipped by flatpack and assembled by the end user. the stated price in one month rental.
You can use your own type of pedals as it is threaded for both common pedal thread pitch sizes. There are two crank length positions.
[tyler, 10/13ish/21] Notes-
Indoor exercise bike that when operated generates electricity which is used to power a fan pointed at the rider. Excess electricity can be used to charge cell phones or other devices. The speed of the fan is directly related to the rate of pedaling. ! Ed. This is not true, the fan speed is manually controlled by the rider so that the rider is not painfully cooled when starting out cold and warming up. When the rideus heated to the point of pain, that pain is relieved by the user increasing the fan speed until comfort maximized. Thus it is less painfull thsn riding an actual or air bike.!
Tyler's notes: This product appears to be a mix of an air bike and a generator bike with the main differences being-
- The fan is pointed directly at the rider's front, whereas the airbike's fan is between the riders legs
- The size and build of the (suffercycle) is considerably bulkier than other styles and requires more set up.
!ed. The other bikes are smaller to better fit in the dumpster, or some corner if the house where it wont block the view if the tv.
It depends on your location to have the bike delivered assembled verses shipped flat pack....
- The advantage of the (suffercycle) is the user is rewarded proportionally to their effort. As the user pedals harder, their body heats up and they begin to "suffer" from strain and exhaustion. In a typical cycling setting, a cyclist experiences greater a cooling effect with faster speeds- a unique relationship familiar to all, that is absent in common stationary bikes. We believe this experience provides an underappreciated motivational benefit to the health conscious user. The (suffercycle)
- How much electricity will this generate?
- Can surplus electricity be stored? Sold?
- Will the design be slimmed down/ less bulky in the future?
Consumer- Who are we targeting? Gyms? Eco gyms, boutique gyms, etc? Or just the average consumer? What would a room with 12 of these being used by a cycling class be like? Would the noise be too excessive? How would the generated "breeze" act in this situation? ( a gym in sacramento, an eco gym, plans to offset their purchase of stationary bikes by purchasing one with a dynamo and intended to sell back as much as 75% of the power generated by its cycling group/class. This is used as a selling point by the gym to eco-conscious patrons)
Notes on competition:
- None have been found
- Closest competitor would be a fan bike with dynamo and paired with VR app-nothing on market
-Looking for work on the psychology of motivation relevant to the bike's ability to motivate the user via fan speed being tied to pedaling speed, being that this haptic feedback/augmented-intrinsic feedback/virtual haptic feedback/simulated haptic feedback (how do we call this??) is what is unique about this product when compared to other stationary indoor exercise cycles. Published studies showing the perfomance boosting effects of haptic feedback(wind) to the indoor cyclist, to simulate, in conjunction with VR headset or alone, cycling/exercising outdoors, which has been shown to increase perfomance vs performaning the same activity indoors.
