Good little trainer that isn't loud, but it isn't quiet either. Sturdy frame and construction holds me and my bike (6'2" 265 lbs.). It doesn't come with a training skewer, the one that came with my bike didn't work with the axle cups so I had to get a cheap one from my LBS. I've seen identical trainers with different brands on them so really any of them would be fine for light training/winter riding replacement. Bike is easy to get in and out with minimal fuss, so you can go riding outside when a nice day comes by. Very satisfied with my purchase.
Don't assume this product will work with your particular bike. Prior to purchasing this product, I was very concerned as to whether it would work on my bike, but no where did I see on the Overstock.com product information areas any details to warn customers that this trainer would not work for bikes equipped with quick release wheel levers. I am very disappointed that I'm having to return this product because unfortunately important product details were not provided to me up front upon ordering. So I blame the product information marketing, not the product. Obviously, I didn't get a chance to try the product, although I could tell that it is a well made and a solid product after putting it together which was fairly easy. Bottom line, good product for the price, but now I also know why it is less expensive than other models, and that is because it works on bikes without quick release wheel levers. So my "fair" rating reflects the inadequacy of product information on this website. I hope the return process is better that their product information. Good luck!
I never erexcise, so I thought I would get one of these and at least try to get some activity in this winter. I have a big touring bike--Probably too big, I'm 5'8). This trainer works fine. It wasn't too hard to put together. The directions picture was a little difficult to make out, but if you have common sense, things should be easy enough. I thought I was totally done in when I had a little difficulty actually hooking the bike into the trainer. I have a chainless bike and there was no nut on the right side. (I think the directions may be a little mixed-up between right and left, too). I thought is was doomed, but i managed to get it together and it works fine. If your are like me, you don't need an expensive trainer. The price is right, it works fine--big bike, no "chain" not much experience.
