Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the CycleOps trainer I've had this thing for almost a week and have used it every day so far. It is kind of loud, but I have it in my spare bedroom and use my headphones to watch netflix/listen to music. I've found that you don't have to tighten the resistance as much as I thought- just enough that the tire is making solid contact because I can totally use my gears and up the resistance. Not sure if this is true for every bike. Anyway, I love it and I'm so happy to be able to ride my bike when it's gross and rainy out!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Buy!!!!!!!!! In So Cal. we had heavy rain for a week. I had purchased the cyclops for the time it was too dark ro ride outside. It came in handy during the storms. The DVD is a pretty good training tool. Very easy to set up I recommend buying a rubber mat and a block for the front wheel. The first time I didn't have one, my wrists were killing me by the end of the video. It is alittle loud but so were my other wind trainer. I just put on my headphones and ride. You may also want a computer w/cadence that uses the rear wheel to keep track of speed and distance

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value trainer This is a great value trainer. It does not have all the bells and whistles that many trainers have but is durable and simple with few things to go wrong. I had some issues getting the locknut to stay put on the hub adjustment, but once set and really tightened, it worked fine. This trainer would likely not be good for apartments or duplexes where sound might be a problem. It roars like a shop vac when going really hard. Also doesn't seem to have the top end resistance that some other units have but great for many applications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up, easy to use! I bought this trainer so I could keep bike fit as the evenings began to draw in and throughout winter....I haven't been disappointed! This allows you to train as hard as you want for as long as you want at a sustained cadence. It allows you to work up through the gears like on the road (although I start off in top and keep it there for the whole workout) In some respects, it's a harder workout than a road ride! Excellent build quality, easy to use, easy to mount the bike to it, and folds away when you don't need it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works Great quality wind trainer and construction. It'll get the job done when in a pinch and you need a ride. However, the fan does not provide sufficient resistance for intense efforts. Good trainer if you're new to cycling or if you're experienced, it's good for recovery to steady effort rides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the trainer you need. Set it up, put your bike on it, ride, get a good sweaty workout, rinse and repeat. Quiet and dependable, no frills, no unnecessary bells and whistles. Get your workout in and move on. Not as good as being outdoors on a sunny day, but. Whole lot better than doing nothing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well worth the purchase! Since I purchased my CycleOps Wind Trainer I have been spending half the time riding but maintaining my times in my triathlons. Without traffic lights, cars, pedestrians, etc. to maneuver around I'm able to get a more consistent high quality workout. My cadence has improved, I have more time to spend with my family, and I'm not out on the road risking a crash. It is very noisy, but I ride in my garage so it isn't an issue for me. This is probably the best purchase I have ever made, next to my Cervelo ;)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value This trainer is a great value. It doesn't have the top end resistance of some other trainers but it is smooth and very consistent. The frame is rock solid and the clamping mechanism works well once you get it set up. The only reason for not giving four stars is the level of noise which is just inherent in a wind resistance unit, and the lock washer on the clamping mechanism sometimes vibrates loose. I've had to really tighten mine down to get it to stay. Seems like there could be a better design there.

How quickly can I detach the bike from the trainer and be on the road? I want to warm up with a trainer before sunrise, and then ride on the road with the same bike once the sun comes up.

Asked by: E Hiker
After the initial setup where you replace your bike's skewer with the included CycleOps skewer, it takes seconds to unclamp your bike and take it on the road.

Will this trainer work with my Dahon folder's small wheels (20"). Does it require that I remove my rear fender each time I attach? I understand trainers are hard on tires. How much wear on my rear tire will this create v. road riding? Thanks!

Asked by: Dagen
This trainer is not designed for 20" tires. However, you can purchase a wheel adapter on CycleOps' site. Depending on your bike, you may need to remove your rear fender each time you use the trainer. Trainers won't necessarily wear your tire out faster, but the wear on the tire is all concentrated in the middle of the tire while riding on the road will wear out your tire evenly. If you do plan on using the trainer a lot, you may want to get a trainer tire specifically so you can then switch back to your regular tires for road riding.

Is this the front part or the back part? And, does it come with the other piece to hold up the other wheel?

Asked by: LukLuk48
The rear wheel of the bike goes on this trainer. REI sells riser rings (or blocks) and mats to help in the set up.

which is better........the wind trainer or the magnet trainer? which is quieter?

Asked by: patt
Wind trainers are a great entry-level option but they can be noisy. Also, few or no adjustments are possible and hard pedaling can max out the amount of resistance. Magnetic trainers are much more quiet. Also, resistance can be adjusted to simulate easy roads, hills or intervals; some have adjust-on-the-fly capabilities using a remote control.
