What is the best location for weighted training if I use one Rock Bar? -- The ideal location is below the down tube and bottom bracket. This position gives the most neutral balance. The second popular location is under a top tube. This position will make the ride a little harder since the bike usually sways from side to side a bit when riding, and thus will require more muscle force to center the bike.
