I have a Claud Butler hybrid bike which uses road tyres so they're reasonably smooth which means that it's pretty quiet as you pedal. If you have a deep tread, this would directly effect the noise levels.
Things to note: tyre air pressure must be high- the tyre on my 26" wheel was slightly low which meant I was unable to use the roller to assert any satisfactory pressure for resistance. The reason for this is because of the way that the roller is angled; if it's presented too close (thus increasing the pressure), the static component on which the roller is attached to touches the tyre- I've included a photo to illustrate this point.
Another downside is that you must stop pedalling and get off your bike to make adjustments to the resistance, this can't be done whilst you're riding, although you are able to adjust your gears to give similar effect. Finally, be aware that you do indeed get a front wheel rest in the kit- I wasn't aware of this and had bought one separately, much to my annoyance.
Overall, this bit of kit does what I need it to. I'm an overweight guy in his late 30's who's looking to shed some weight- this contraption, used in conjunction with a spinning video on YouTube, will certainly help me to achieve this. This being said, I question whether it's really worth the £50+ price tag.
I'll be talking about the red version (not that there are any differences between the two except for the colour), as that's what I have, just FYI.
It's a pretty heavy, solid piece of equipment. When you're setting your bike up for the first time, it's probably a good idea to have two people doing it: one to hold the bike in place, and one to tighten the knobs at the side. I'm the only person in my house, and it was awkward as all get-out to do it alone. But once it's in there, tighten it until it can't be tightened any more - ignore what the instructions say! You don't wanna sit on your saddle and find yourself on the floor when your bike comes out of the stand - go around back, and fix the knob at the flywheel into place for your resistance (it'll probably be pointing knob-up and screw-down; it needs to be knob-down and screw facing towards your wheel. You'll see a little metal bit with a thread in it behind the flywheel track).
Tighten until you have your desired resistance (move your back wheel around as you do this to gauge how much resistance there is on it).
Then get on and pedal!
I currently weigh 27st 3lbs (keep your comments to yourselves, please, I bought it for a reason!) and there's been no creaks or complaints. It holds my weight just fine. Shows no signs of letting my bike go and dumping me unceremoniously to the ground.
It is, however, also quite NOISY. "Incredibly quiet," is a lie. It's like using a powersaw the entire time you're working out. Or a jackhammer, maybe. It is not quiet in the least. But don't let that put you off.
Well worth the money.
Came delivered next working day in it's own box, so i was ready to use after taking out of the box.
Not much to say on the item, it works but a couple of things to consider.
I found it easy to setup, but not so easy to un-tighten and remove the bike, it seemed to always get stuck on either side, and it would take ages to undo as it basically kept spinning when trying to undo.
I tried it in my sun lounge and i was told by the other half to get out as she said it was simply too loud, i have been kicked out in the garden.
And to be honest it's still loud out there and i only dare use it in gear 1/2/3 at a low speed as i don't want to upset the neighbours.
It does work but the few points mentioned above kind of lets it down for me.
I received this product at a discount in return for my honest review.
