The Minoura FG542 Hybrid Roller Trainer is built on the tried and true teachings that an effective spin is the key to becoming a better cyclist. Power based, rear drive mount trainers focus only on building muscle. With exponential power based trainers power is achieved on the down stroke and lost on the up stroke.

This gives you half the benefit of a real road ride and doesn’t encourage a real, full pedal stroke spin that is both power and skill enhancing. A true push-pull effect is the real benefit of the FG-540 and most closely mimics what you would do on a real road ride. Get the training and workout you need with the FG542 at home or on the road.

DELIVERY

Shipping And Handling Orders up to €50 Ireland or Northern Ireland will incur a €4.99 p+p charge. Orders above €50 are delivered free of charge, except for bulky or heavy items - which include for example: Bikes - variable cost - Kids (€20), Adult Road and Hybrid (€30), MTB and E-Bike (€50), Super-73 (€200); Smart Turbo Trainers and SUP Boards are €9.99.

UK Shipping post Brexit: Shipping Costs are a flat €15 for most items to accomodate extra charges for customs.  If your order is greater than £135, You may need to pay import duties to the courier on items that you receive, if they are manufactured outside of the EU or UK (most items).  The only way that we can proceed currently is that at the moment these will be calculated by our courier - e.g. UPS, and you will be charged before delivery.

Orders outside of Ireland incur an extra shipping charge, depending on location and total cost, and this will be shown at checkout.  Most EU destinations - France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Belgium are free for orders over €100 but prices for shipping are very high further afield - for example Greece. 

Bikes sent internationally will be sent as we receive them from the supplier to reduce the chances of the bike being damaged in transit. This will mean the bike will have to be self-assembled or taken to a local mechanic for assembly.

We subsidise shipping as much as possible, whilst using reputable shipping companies to try to ensure the best and safest possible delivery to you.
