JOHNNY G SPIRIT BIKE
This video will take you through the nuts and bolts of the Johnny G Spirit Bike. We’ve designed one of the most advanced machines on the market, and we kept it simple to operate.

Spend 30 minutes going deeper into our bike, then take it for a ride!
ALL TERRAIN RIDE
We designed this video to show any rider, at any level, how the features of our bike can be incorporated into their training. By the end of it you’ll be able to use biofeedback and real-time metrics to enhance your training.
We’ll cover cycling techniques, heart rate training, Watts, climbing, and rpm, and have some fun while we do it!
Start challenging yourself mentally and physically! Our climb tutorial shows you how the varying levels of resistance and multiple hand positions can be used to simulate any real road climb you can imagine. Discover how simple changes in body positions and muscle recruitments can improve your strength and performance on the toughest hills.
AND we’ll guide you through recovery techniques to ensure your body will be prepared to tackle the stress of the ascending that next hill.
THE RIDE OF TRUTH
The true test of any athlete is how far they can go, and how long it takes them to get there. The Ride of Truth is the culmination of everything we’ve discussed in our previous videos, and will be your ultimate challenge. You’ll be exposed to the philosophy of "Time Trialing" and what it can do for your training or class atmosphere.
Go beyond the everyday, beyond the inside riding you’ve known for years, and use this 30 min video as a roadmap for a new challenge!
