It was very easy to set up.
Sheryl Cowan
The noise is not unbearable, I wear headphones to listen to the TV when I ride, and I can hear just fine at a low volume.
Amazon Customer
I have a road bike so the tires are smooth but it isn't loud at all.

This is just what it should be, really, and maybe it deserves 5 stars for that. The instructions were confusing because there's an extra unexplained part, but I figured it out (you don't need the extra axle). I am not a serious biker; this is just to get some exercise w/o buying an expensive piece of equipment.

What I'd totally forgotten about what the noise a bike trainer makes (and this is the main reason I'm posting, in case you've also forgotten or didn't know). Looking online just now, I've seen it likened to vacuum cleaning, and that's about right. I'm not sure that any other bike trainer would be better on this front... maybe the rim trainers are. (Note: see the other review that explains that if you get other tires for your bike the noise will not be an issue. Me, I am not "serious enough" to buy other tires, much less change them.)

Bottom line: this is fine. If you can deal with the noise, get it.

Update (a few years later): I don't use this much any more, as I got an elliptical machine (which I prefer)... but I've realized this will be great for my summer away when I'll have my bike with me anyway. And if it's raining and I'd like some exercise, I'm all set.

To answer the question from the comment, it's quite easy to put the bike in and out. If you look at the picture, there's a faux axle squeezed between two pins/clamps at the top. The faux axle was the part that confused me. (Thanks to other helpful reviewers, I now know that this is provided to protect your real axle from scratches, if you have that sort of a bike). Your bike goes there, and you just tighten the pin/clamp things to hold the bike in place. The wheel rests on the part at the bottom which might need adjusting for your particular bike, but once that's set, your bike will go in and out without much fuss.

I don't have any other comparison, since this is the first I have ever purchased, but I was pleasantly surprised when I received it just two days after I ordered with FREE shipping.

The trainer itself is solid and works better than I could have hoped for, cost a lot less than buying an exercise bike.

I am not a cyclist and bought this to simply turn a regular bike into an exercise bike.

There was zero assembly required, just unfold it and place your bike in, super easy, when you want to ride the bike out on the street, it's free in less than 30 seconds.

The only con I would say about this, is that it is loud if you have nobby treaded tires, from the previous review, I can see how a smooth tire would quiet it down, You do or can get use to the noise of it, However, you can also release the tire from the tension roller an ride like a regular bike.

Highly Recommend, I don't think you'll be sorry on this one.

This trainer is great. I have a basic trek mountain fat tire bike and it fits perfectly on the trainer. I was all ready to buy a real spinning cycle but decided to try this instead mostly due to space in my studio apt.I love spinning and I was having a hard time justifying two bikes in my small apt. I will address some of the points made by other posters:

The noise factor: yes,noisy but not THAT bad. I use to have a treadmill and that was noisy as well. If I spin during odd hours, I use the IPOD. Otherwise I blare my stereo. You can get the music loud enough to drown the noise out. I never got complaints from any neighbors when I had the treadmill. Its only 30-45 minutes anyway. If you are doing more than that, its not necessary anyway (speaking as a certified trainer).I suppose you could purchase the road tire to eliminate noise, but I just don't think its worth it. Also, If I want to take a quick ride outside, I would have to change my tire. Changing a tire for this trainer is not necessary. They told me at a bike shop once, that I could not use my fat tire on one these trainers. Its all about whether you can take the noise or not, I guess.

It comes fully assembled, really easy to slip your bike into. Easy to take bike off quickly as well, for a ride outside.

Workout is just like being on spinning cycle at the gym except if you try to do the lifts off the seat, like they do in the classes. It may be my bike, but it wasn't fluid when I tried this. This does not bother me.

If you put the bike on carpet, you do not need the front tire lifter/stablizer. The rear tire is not so high that you feel you are falling forward. If I had hardwood, I would get some kind of mat or get the front tire lifter just to keep the front tire stable.

There are trainers with more features than the Bell but you will pay a lot more. If you are new to indoor biking then the Bell Trainer is the perfect way to start. You can always upgrade to a $500 trainer later if you feel the need. There is no adjustable resistance mechanism on the Bell. You adjust the resistance using your bike's gears. Simplicity is a good thing IMHO! Some reviews have complained about noise. I've heard noiser Trainers than the Bell. My exersize cycle makes way more noise. In comparison the Bell is rather well behaved in that regard. The build quality on the Bell is VERY solid. The bearings seem to be of high quality. The flywheel is machined and polished steel. It comes out of the box already assembled. Mounting the bike on the trainer was easily done alone. A skewer type quick release hub is included if needed (I needed one). Amazon's low price and free shipping makes it a steal and is the best deal I could find anywhere. I absolutely love my Bell Trainer and highly recommend it.
