Strengths:    Build quality. Ease of setting up. Range of resistances.

Weaknesses:    Not enough momentum from the flywheel.

Bottom Line:   
Gives you a good workout. Better to buy this than a more expensive model, as they seem about the same when pedalling.
I have just bought a TranzX JD111. It is far superior. The flywheel is really heavy and gives a much more realistic road feel.

Strengths:    Very well made. I dont tink I could break it if I put my bosses picture on it and took a hammer to it.

Weaknesses:    it's loud. I swear. Once you switch into a harder gear, look out, it sounds as if you're aboot to take off on an aeroplane runway. plus, setting the bike up on the trainer is hard, because one of the levers is perpetually stuck. i doubt i'll ever lug that thing to a warm-up before a race; by the time you fit your bike into the trainer, it'll be time for the race.

Bottom Line:   
ok for a startup but really doesnt cut the mustard with regards to moise ad your ability to watch tv while riding etc.

Date Reviewed: October 9, 2002

Strengths:    Offers a wide range of ability to adjust resistance levels. At its most difficult setting, it offers more than enough resistance for even the strongest of riders. Comes with a rear skewer for use with the trainer. Noise levels from this quieter than I expected. Folds quickly.

Weaknesses:    Some use of plastic parts, where metal would appear to be stronger over the long term. Terrible assembly instructions! A small knob on the bottom of the unit really has to be cranked down to get enough tightness to keep the wheel from slipping, and the knob isn't that easy to grip. Locking mechanism which clamps onto skewer could be better designed.

Bottom Line:   
Worth a look if you want a trainer that offers maximum levels of resistance.
