What cycling shoes are best for Stages indoor bikes?The Stages SP3 and SP2 pedals can accommodate both SPD (2-bolt) and Delta (3-bolt) cleats.

Can I see calories burned on the indoor bike?If the Stages indoor bike has a Stages Power meter and console, such as the SC3 bike, riders can see calories information displayed on the console. Two relevant metrics are displayed during the ride and in the RESULTS summary at the end of the ride: the kcal and the kJ. The kcal and kJ are similar measurements that represent the energy used during your workout. A kcal is a kilocalorie, or as most of know it, a Calorie, and is the same Calorie measurement commonly seen on food packaging that shows how much energy the food you’re consuming will give you. During your ride, both the instantaneous and the average kcal/hour are displayed on the left and right sides of the screen. These measurements help give you an idea of how many kcals or Calories you will burn if you maintain that pace for an hour.
