Hello to all indoor cycling enthusiasts,

We are a game development team and we consider this our next project...

The idea is fairly simple… I was pedaling following one of the spinning videos from youtube, and I’ve found myself tightening and loosening the resistance knob a lot… breaking the immersion.
So I started thinking about a way of making this automated, compared with what some treadmills or magnetic bicycles are already doing. From this idea, evolved to a lot more interesting
features that could be implemented by having the bike running on his own.
On this video (https://vimeo.com/119968783) I'll show you the process that I have followed to “Rig” my bike and forget about having to turn that annoying knob.

We are looking to gather as many backers as possible so we can release our crowdfunding campaign and make this project possible

Please tell us what you think about our project.
