StarStarStarStarStar Great trainer!

by
Ownership: several months
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Indiana got a fair amount of ice this winter so a friend suggested an indoor trainer. I didn't realize how easy it would be to use one. This model is very sturdy and I feel very secure on it. Lets me maintain some conditioning over the winter when I can't ride outside.

Very pleased with this and would recommend it to friends.

Other Thoughts

Modern Bike is the place I check first for anything I need or want. Very fast shipping and items are well packed.

StarStarStarStarStar Best tool for post-surgery

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Had an extensive knee surgery scheduled; it will be weeks/months before I can ride out on the trail. Purchased this to use once the doctor allowed stationary bike use. Works exactly as advertised, Pull it out of packaging & place behind rear wheel: too simple.

Cons

None.

StarStarStarStarStar Trainer for my trike

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Works very well with my Catrike with 20 inch wheels. I especially love the ability to change the resistance/effort simply by gearing up or down on my trike. Has given me the opportunity to stay in shape during the Indiana winter.

Nicely designed, high quality, very functional.

Cons

None. I just wish I would have bought it sooner.

Other Thoughts

Suggest you sell as an 'accessory' direct from Catrike as they did recommend the overdrive trainer when I made my email inquiry.

StarStarStarStarStar Not as easy as you think

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

No assembly required

Smooth resistance changes

Lightweight and small

Can turn the unit around for progressive resistance

Does not damage the trike as your trike only rests on the rollers

Cons

Makes more noise than my CyclOps trainer even at low speeds.

Trike surges while riding and it's not due to pedal strokes alone as it still oscillates in the rollers (forward/backward) even when coasting.

You will need something under the front tires if you want to maintain your normal riding profile.

Other Thoughts

I have considered some type of hold down device to prevent the oscillations while riding. Holding the front brake seems to help a lot.
