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.

I was happy to find that there is no assembly required. It was very easy to set up. It works fine, and is a very sturdy and good-quality piece of equipment. However, it is noisier than I thought it would be. Well, I did choose the cheapest bike trainer I could find, so maybe you get what you pay for.

I think for the price, this is a great trainer. Yes it is not the quietest, but to be honest, I've tried other trainers and they aren't exactly "quiet" by any means either. I'd say at least half of the noise comes from the bike itself. Such factors that contribute to the noise are how well your bike has been tuned (alignment and lubrication of front and rear derailleurs, cassettes, chain, gears, hubs) as well as your bikes tires.

The video I posted shows my girlfriend trying out the trainer for the first time. It does seem quite loud, however it should be known that my home is a large open space with concrete floors (what is typical of loft apartments), so expect the unit to be slightly quieter in smaller apartments or ones with carpeting.

My girlfriend was using the trainer and even though I could hear the buzzing, it wasn't obnoxiously loud. She was able to enjoy watching her Netflix on her iPad while I surfed the web nearby. I asked if she though it was loud, and her response was "it could be quieter".

If you must have a SUPER quiet trainer, then this one isn't it. Otherwise this is a really good bargain, it works well, easy to set up and feels very smooth.

There are two ways to increase resistance on this trainer. The easy way is to just change gears. Magnetic resistance increases with wheel spin. Keep in mind the faster you go, the louder your bike and the trainer will get. The other alternative is to increase the pressure of the roller against the tire on the resistance unit, which is just a turn or two on the big knob. This way you can keep the speed low and still get a good workout.

Anyway, for less than $100 you are getting a trainer that will give you as good a workout as any other trainer that costs 3 or even 4 times as much.
