Strengths:    For the money, it gives good information. Easy setup. More basic than RacerMate Computrainer.

Weaknesses:    Generic user interface. Product support. The US rep for Elite didn't know anything about the trainer or the software? I had to get products from England since Performance doesn't support the product although they do carry versions of this same trainer from time to time but the do not carry the extra software. You have to find it in Europe and get it.

Bottom Line:   
Buy it. It works fine but realise you have to be VERY proactive on finding support (overseas). I have never had a problem with it. It's easy to use and very effective. The resistance motor on mine is the size of a watermelon, the new one is better. I've spilled a gallon of white paint all over it including the computer connection and was still able to get it to work. So for the money, it'll do the job. Plus the software is good. Second choice to computrainer but the computrainer guy was boring, too.

Strengths:    Fairly easy mechanical setup. Good features

Weaknesses:    Could never get the software to run properly. Neither Performance nor Elite-it provided adequate support. Software insisted on trying to create directories on start up that already existed, then errored out.

Bottom Line:   
Do not purchase this product. Recommend not to purchase any product with software from Performance as they are not able to provide any support. Recommend not to by any Axiom product as Elite-it in Italy is unable to provide any support.

Stay away!
