Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
Cons: must buy specialist tyre
Great product, not as noisy as I thought given warnings from friends over other turbo trainers and good variable resistance.
Beware: do get a special turbo trainer tyre as it does really quickly shred standard ones.

Blue Matic is an exceptional product

PostedAugust 4, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, stable
This is my first turbo trainer but I am glad I went the whole hog and spent that little extra. The resistance is perfect to get you working the gears and off the saddle.
this is a really stable and solid product.
The resistance controller is easy enough to operate, the only slight whine I would have is the changing of the resistance slightly can be a bit clunky when tired. You tend to end up changing from 7 to 3 when you may only want to go to 5... but honestly I would still buy this product knowing that you just have to be a bit thoughtful when adjusting the resistance.
