We’re real cyclists helping other cyclists train harder by making sure they have the right gear to get the job done. We’ve been doing this in one form or another since 2009.
James is our chief UK bike trainer tester, he resides in beautiful Cheshire with his 3 road bikes, two mountain bikes, wife, two young children and two dogs. It’s quite a full house.
Andrew takes care of our US operations and tests anything that we can’t get our hands on in the UK. He lives in Austin, TX with his wife.
Greg lives in the UK and takes care of the technical side of things, including designing this beautiful website. He’s also a dab hand at repairing things, from bikes, through trainers and even the occasional classic car.
James and Greg have known each other since they went to school and have been cycling enthusiasts since before they could walk.
They met Andrew on a cycling vacation in France in 2009 and the three of them hit it off instantly.
After three weeks on the road we decided to start a website together and the first iteration was born. It was called Life in the Saddle and proved to be a great success.
After a year we decided to focus on reviewing bike trainers and turbotrainerreviews.com was born.
Turbotrainerreviews.com quickly developed into the largest UK based reviewer of bike trainers and generated a loyal following in the UK and the USA.
Hacking and Heartbreak
Then in 2012 our servers were hacked and everything we had worked on was ruined. We had lost everything that we had worked on for so long.
We were forced to start again, so we moved to a more secure hosting company (Synthesis, you are amazing!) and purchased the new domain name biketrainer.reviews. That is where we, and you, are right now.
Have a look around, hopefully you’ll find something useful.
