Goodgod, what happened to you? Oh, bike accident. That's odd, I thought you were training inside yesterday. Uuummm, yeah.

The Climbing Block levels and stabilizes your front wheel as you do a workout on your indoor trainer. What's unique about the Climbing Block, though, is that you can rotate it to set your wheel higher than your trainer, thereby increasing the level of difficulty of your workout. The goal here, of course, is to more accurately simulate climbing.

You can rotate the climbing block in any of three positions to increase the steepness of your "climb", you can also purchase two Climbing Blocks and stack them on top of each other if you'd like to replicate climbing the really steep Manayunk Wall and Kemmelberg-type stuff. With the use of two blocks, you'll end up with 9 different levels of steepness to choose from.

The injection molded construction is virtually indestructible. You can count on many long winter nights in front of the TV riding like a madman thanks to its superb durability.

  • Injection molded construction
  • Three height options
  • Option to stack two blocks

On the Level

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you have to ride inside, do so with the proper gear. Leave the phone books above the fridge and get a riser block.

Should come with all trainers

    If you have a trainer, you need one of these. It is as simple as that. For the price, it will save you any stability issues with your trainer and will allow you to stay in the saddle that much longer. Stop with the stacked books and grab one of these.

    Highly recommend

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    For $15, definitely recommend getting this. It's stable and helps up the workout a bit. Certainly a great accessory / add-on.

    Does what it's supposed to

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This wheel riser helps level the bike and to keep it stable, and it does exactly that. Only negative I could think of is that it has a bigger footpring than I feel is necessary, so it takes up some space

    Very stable. Great accessory.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Seems to be the perfect piece to keep your wheel solid. I think it's an awesome feature to be able to stack them on top of each other but for now I just have the one. Cheaper versions would probably do the job just fine, but this is definitely a great, versatile option.

    worth it

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a great accessory to your trainer. It keeps the wheel locked into place and also allows you to adjust the height to simulate more hill type work. Very stable too.

    Great riser, lots of options

      This is the most versatile riser block I've used with my Kurt Kinetic Road Machine trainer. The lowest channel in the CycleOps riser block leaves the bike sitting level. The other two channels give slight inclines. There are 3 different ways to use 2 blocks together if you want a plethora of steeper inclines to choose from. You can nest/spoon them together, stack them "offset" as in the photo, or stack them with the bases interlocked together (bottom one upside-down, top one right-side-up) to simulate the really steep climbs. Pretty smart design, I think.

      I like the way this riser block cradles the front tire. You know riding the trainer is going to wear your rear tire, but why should the front tire take any abuse? This is one of the reasons I chose the CycleOps over the Kurt "riser ring", which looked like it might abrade the front tire after a winter of spinning.

      I'd give it a 5th star if it were a little cheaper.

      Level to Raised

        I'll admit that I haven't done too much training with my front tire raised, this a climbing riser block is a nice piece of equipment to have just to get your bike level with the trainer since you're rear wheel is up in the air. I use a CycleOps Fluid 2, and in the lowest groove my bike is about level. These blocks seem level and stable, even when two are stacked together.

        Good Riser. Get a few.

          Works great and is very stable. (Drop the phone books) One riser provides multiple height options and is definitely necessary to get a level ride with a CycleOps trainer. Get a second (or even a third) to increase the options for those TrainRight Climbing workouts.

          Write your question here. How does it raise the bike, I cant figure that from the pictures..

          There are several grooves in the block all have a different height hat you sit your front tire on. Generally without a block your front tire sits below your rear tire and it feels like your are riding down hill.

          For a more natural feel user the block and find the groove that sits you level front and rear tire.

          For a climbing feel us a taller groove and ride on the bar tops.

          I had heel surgery which included my achilles tendon. I need to excersize without any resistance. It was suggested that a bike trainer
          would be good. Can anyone tell me if they have used this for that purpose or any thoughts as to doing so? Thanks C..

          After I tore my ACL my physical therapist prescribed the following routine. I used a bike trainer to begin getting a little flexibility in my knee back. Initially I had the seat uncomfortable high to avoid bending the ligament too much and the resistance unit off the tire. Over the next few weeks I lowered the seat to a bit below normal to get a full knee bend and extension. In the mean time I added the resistance unit with very high gearing. Over time the gearing came down to increase strength.

          Same may work for your Achilles but it is always best to check with your Dr. or therapist for the specifics first.

          I torn my Achilles tendon & it has messed up all of my leg & back muscles. Riding helps because it is low impact on my ankle but because of the heat I haven't been able to ride. I got a trainer w/riser block and I have been able to get in short rides that feel really good.

          Climb, Climb, Climb

            If you want to ride indoors while another winter snow storm arrives from the Rockies, look no further than the riser block. Sure, you might not get altitude sick with this piece of plastic, but you will enjoy not using the usual stack of telephone books that seem to move every direction that you don't want them to move. It is stable and sturdy (and cheap).
