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.
Modern Bike is the place I check first for anything I need or want. Very fast shipping and items are well packed.
Best tool for post-surgery
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.
Trainer for my trike
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.
None. I just wish I would have bought it sooner.
Suggest you sell as an 'accessory' direct from Catrike as they did recommend the overdrive trainer when I made my email inquiry.
Not as easy as you think
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
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.
I have considered some type of hold down device to prevent the oscillations while riding. Holding the front brake seems to help a lot.
