A useful tool for a winter workout.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: Expensive
This trainer needs to be assembled at home. The assembly instructions make things easy. Fitting the bike to the trainer needs some care to get the rear wheel alligned just right. When on the bike/trainer it becomes obvious that the need for a perfectly level floor/ground is vital as there is no built in adjustment to level the trainer.

Great product, great value

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great
Really easy to get started using this trainer. Is not noicy, a good movie or music totally overrides the sound from it. To have the extra levels besides the gears gives this trainer an extra value. Really reccomend this product to anyone.

Very good but it can be improved

PostedNovember 22, 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
This trainer does not have adjustable feet to cope with uneven floors. To stop it "walking" across the floor I would suggest you jam on the front brake with a cable tie and disable the rear brake (operating the rear brake can damage the trainer).These flaws are common to most trainers and should not necessarily dissuade you from its purchase.
This trainer is strongly made and effective.
It has plenty of scope in its resistance levels. For me level 5 in higher gears is still an ambition.
I would not recommend that heavily treaded tyres be used with any trainer.
I was disappointed that no training suggestions came with the trainer but Evans do suggest some training levels in their brochures and there are plenty of websites to help you.
I would thoroughly recommend the use of a heart rate monitor when using all trainers .
The only problem I have experienced is that, the switch to set the resistance level will not fit over my handlebars so out came the cable ties again.
This a quality product but please Elite be the first to innovate with adjustable feet.
