Absolutely excellent for the fair weather cyclist.
on 10 January 2014
I'm a fair weather cyclist and love getting out in the warmer (drier) weather but want to try and keep fit during the cold winter months. I'd spent a bit of time researching these gizmos and everyone that I spoke with sang their praises, so all that remained was to try and select a model.
This one was not the cheapest model on offer and I was concerned that it hadn't had any reviews when compared with others out there. However, these concerns were unfounded. The product is simple to use, easy to set up (a couple of minutes) and it comes with everything that you need (wheel block, gear cable, rear wheel spindle etc). It was on the "amazon prime" list so was delivered quickly and had a massive discount on the original price which took it down to the same cost as those with multiple star reviews.
One of the concerns raised in a lot of the reviews is the noise. I have a town and trail bike so neither mountain bike nor completely slick tyres are being used and there is a bit of noise. However, this is nothing overpowering and when the headphones are on you don't really notice it.
All in all, this is a great piece of kit and takes up very little space in the room. It'll be an excellent addition to the fitness regime.
