Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
Excellent entry level trainer. Although noisier than other models it is easy to set up and use. The DVD that comes with it is a really good training aid. Works brilliantly in my garage in the badcold weather.

Pleasantly surprised

Posted23 February 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Cons: relatively noisy
It is obviously possible to spend vast amounts of money on increasingly technical turbo trainers and I am sure this is necesasary if you want to connect a laptop, ride virtually with people in other countries and compare heart rates.
If you just want to to break a sweat indoors when it's too wet or cold to ride, the CyclOps Wind is perfectly adequate.
It's well made and very uncomplicated, to assemble and use. The amount of resistance you want is dictated by which of your bike gears you select, not using an additional switch/lever.
It is undeniably noisy due to the 'wind' functionality, possibly more so than other turbo trainer types, but nothing that can't be combatted by turning the iPod up.
It also comes with a useful DVD that I have used a couple of times.
Essentially it does what it says on the tin and at £99 including the (very necesasary) Riser Block for the front wheel, you really can't go wrong.
