I just sold my less than one year old Lemond Revolution because I wanted a power based trainer such as the Powerbeam pro or the Computrainer...and really these were my two options. Cycleops customer service has been AMAZING this far. I've had so many questions on how to set up, test, and understand all the features and they've been very helpful.

For my 1st test, I downloaded a free ironman course that someone else rode (I've ridden the actual course myself about 6 times), and rode the course at home on the trainer and it was BRUTAL! This cycleops product works, and since I have a power meter on my bike, I can ride any course, save it on the Joule, and then ride the course at home. It also has a freewheel as well so when I stop pedaling, it will slowly .

And Cycleops had informed me that pretty soon I'll be able to download courses directly from Google maps and ride the course at home....and it'll gave a GUI very similar to the computrainer as well.

I bought the Powerbeam Pro a few weeks ago for cross training and to expand competition into cycling. It replaced a Lemond Revmaster spin bike. The combination of being on a real bike combined with feedback that tells you when you're slacking results in a much better workout than any spin bike.

The unit was packaged well, all parts present and accounted for. Fairly easy to construct. My rear fork interferes with the rear skewer tab required for the PB, which makes it hard to tighten the wheel. This would be an issue if I had to exchange skewers frequently, but apparently isn't an issue with most bikes.

The Joule 3 is the main reason I bought the Powerbeam Pro and it is enough of a reason. it provides feedback across a variety of parameters and that data is downloadable into their PowerAgent software. If you like instant feedback and also like data for analysis, this tool is excellent. One problem I'm having so far is that the power reading doesn't mesh with my perceived effort from workout to workout. I believe this is due to variations in the setup (e.g., tire pressure, tightness of wheel on the roller). The tightness of the wheel seems to have significant influence on the power reading. There is a calibration capability that should adjust for this. I haven't fully tested that calibration capability yet. When I get some consistency with the setup and with the workouts, I think the feedback will be a motivator to get on the trainer when I can't ride outdoors.

In the future (fall 2012) there are supposed to be virtual reality workouts that I expect will modify the conditions in synch with a video. As monotonous as indoor cycling workouts can be, the Powerbeam Pro and the folks at CycleOps seem to be doing all they can to keep us motivated to stay in shape.

I bought this because I was thinking that it would be a more affordable version of a CompuTrainer--perhaps I should have spent the extra money instead and spared myself the headache. I have a Quarq powermeter with a Garmin 500 computer, and was thinking that it shouldn't be any problem to calibrate and get started. Considering the very high price point for this item, it's really difficult to understand why this trainer does not work perfectly each and every time I use it.

While there are loads of instructions--and a video no less--about how to take the trainer out of the box and put your bike on the trainer, there are *zero* instructions on how to do anything once you actually want to start pedaling, and nothing regarding troubleshooting. Each time I've called Customer Support, I've spoken with really nice guys who want to help, but the extent of their advice is to make sure that my tire is tight enough. Yeah, thanks guys. A typical workout for me has the Target Power (the level of resistance that you set) at 30W, the power displayed on the CycleOps Joule (their computer) at 130W, and my Garmin at 210W!!
