    Loud but works, November 23, 2011

    This review is from: RAD Cycle Products Indoor Portable Magnetic Work Out Bicycle Trainer (Sports)
    Pros
    * Installation took 10min. Just take out the back axle and install one that is provided. The bike will then fit into the stand.
    * Inexpensive. This is one of the less expensive models

    Cons
    * About as loud as a vacuum cleaner when mtn bike tires are installed
    * DiscountTommy is giving people $17 in merchandise to write 5 star reviews on Amazon. To quote from an email they sent me: “We will send you a FREE RAD Bike Hoist for writing a product review on Amazon… All you need is an Amazon.com account and a willingness to write a 5 Star review for our product.”

    Operation
    * Resistance is increased by a) twisting a knob that pushes a roller against the tire or b) increasing your bicycle gear.
    * With mountain bike tires on, the unit is about as loud as an old loud vacuum and it is impossible to carry on a conversation while in use. I am able to hear 2 sounds. One is the humming sound of my tire against the roller. That is expected and can be probably be reduced by changing the tire. The 2nd sound is more abrasive and sounds like a combination of a vacuum and the sound of running a flat, bristle, plastic comb over an edge. It isn’t clear how much changing the tires would improve the noise.

    I consider this a reasonable product if the noise is not a problem.

    Great Value, April 29, 2011

    This is the first bike trainer that I’ve owned, so I don’t have much to compare it to, but I really like it. It was a great value for the price, and simple to put together and use. It’s a little louder than I expected (thus the 4 out of 5 stars) when using it with my mountain bike, but it works well. If you purchase this product, or any other bike trainer for that matter, you probably want something to hold the front tire in place and raise it up a bit. Otherwise it feels like you are slightly sloped downhill. Overall, I’m happy with it.

    The unit came pre assembled, just have to open the legs and adjust the feet cups (they rotate to offer different height settings to level the unit) I didn’t need the supplied speed axle, as it was the same exact one as already equipped on my Trek 7100. It isn’t silent, but not deafening either. I would like to have seem a little more precision built into the rotational parts to quiet it down a bit, but I guess that’s whats another few hundered dollars gets you so I’m not complaining. If you live in an apartment you might consider another model as this will have your neighbors banging on the walls or ceiling with a broom handle. Also, I tried using my wireless headphones linked to my laptop in another room to listen to music from the internet and when I started pedaling the sound went all screwy until I stopped. I pedaled up to 90rpm and my headphones died altogether. I stopped they came back on… pedaled again… died again, thus is the penalty for a magnetic trainer… beware if you have wireless gear nearby, it will interrupt it!
    Other than that, the unit provides steadily increasing resistance with each gear change and step up in rpm but settles in nicely once you hit your pace. It doesn’t however increase resistance the faster you pedal. It only seems to offer an increase based on the higher gear you select. In other words when you up shift it doesn’t just let you freewheel like you’re going downhill, it will resist accordingly, but will level out as if you’re going along a nice flat stretch of road.
    I set my bike for about 80-90 rpm at approx 16mph and ride for an hour. It definitely gives me a work out and I’m sweating nicely by the end and my heart rate is right where I’m comfortable.
    For the money, well worth it. Highly recommended. It would gain the 5th star for added quietness.

  4. I need help setting-up my Thru Axle bike in my Classic Trainer– I went with the Fluid2 Trainer from CycleOps and purchased their Thru Axle Kit, but I have no idea how I go about installing it onto my bike… any help would be greatly appreciated! thank you!

  5. @Pam Klaft-Mulchahey The skewer goes in exactly like a "normal" skewer goes through your rear wheel. The reason that most manufacturers give you a special skewer for your trainer is so you do not have to use the skewers off of your nice/race wheels on your trainer, where they may be scuffed and abused.

  6. I just hooked my Kestral Talon to this trainer. It seems that the gears dont shift like they would on the street. Especially the lowest gear. Also its hard to go from lowest gears to harder gears.Is this normal

  7. The bike is very sturdy and would seen to be suitable for years of hard use.
    It's quiet enough to watch television while using, that's good enough for me. Also, quieter than a conventional bike on a mag trainer.
    Is big enough for my 6 foot frame, and the seat would go another 2-3 inches higher from where I have it set.
    comfortable seat, by bicycling standards.
    here is the link to it in case anyone is interested:amzn.to189X4TP
