According to most videos and instructions ive read on other trainers you should make the roller just touch the tire then do a full turn to 1-1/2 turns for the correct tension. If you need more resistance you can turn it 2 full turns it will make it a lot harder to pedal and give more tension, anymore then that and its probably not good for the tire. I used my decibel meter app which i checked to be very accurate and decided to measure the trainer. A normal quiet room at night is 50db, normal conversation or watching something on tv is about 70+db depending on your tv. My home theater has measured 100db so quite loud. The trainer measured about 80-85 db if that gives people an idea of how loud/quiet that might seem to you. After reading reviews i thought i would have to raise my tv volume, i did not have to. Probably helps to get a smooth trainer made tire for your bicycle as they will last a lot longer and are a lot quieter then a lot of tires.
Reason to get a trainer tire. They are made of a stiffer rubber, they cool down a bit better and are thicker. The reason why a tire wears out quicker on a trainer is because its stationary and only moving along the roller in the same consistent spot. On the road the air and wind cool down the tire and so does the road as its not stationary.
-Smooth and sturdy
-Adjustable roller tension
-Comes with riser block usually an extra 10-20$ for other trainers.
-Resistance doesn't seem like it does much on this particular trainer but it does work.
-The skewer doesnt seem to sit in the cups fairly well but thats minor deeper cups would probably help.
Overall a great trainer that i've used a few times. Its totally different then riding on the road as you can't coast you must constantly pedal. Any questions or comments feel free to ask. Its a great trainer for beginners or anyone looking to stay fit when the weather doesn't permit. Reason for the 4 star review is the resistance needs a bit of work. If that was changed this would be the budget trainer to buy.
UPDATE: I have added a video of the sound it makes. Was record with a regular Canon point and shoot and was probably a foot away from the trainer. It sounds a lot louder then it actually is but you can hear at the beginning the tv is still plenty audible. I might make another one from further away to get a more average sound base. I tried to go from my basic average speed to a bit faster. As you can see im also in the middle average cruising cog and 50t chain ring. The whistle that you hear is possibly due to having low tire pressure in my back tire. Hope it helps for people concerned about noise although probably too close that the mic picked everything up.
Update 2: This looks absolutely identical to this trainer. http://www.amazon.com/RAD-Cycle-Products-MAX-Racer/dp/B005LGTKDG/ref=pd_sbs_sg_1 my guess is there identical.
Update 3: Surprised this review has gone off the charts. Glad the review is helpful and helping people make a decision. Unfortunately i gave mine away to a friend as i have moved to Southern France and trainers aren't necessary here as it doesn't ever get below 40 degrees.
I was convinced that I needed a high-end fluid trainer like Cycleops or Kinetic fluid trainers, but could not justify the high pricetag. After reading glowing reviews, I decided on the Conquer Pro mag trainer. HEAR ME AND HEAR ME WELL: For its price, it is great and does exactly what it is supposed to do!! It came full assembled and had a super-easy set up (that lever is awesome!). It is fairly quiet, but there is a hum that's not too bad. I live on the bottom floor of an apartment with very thin walls, work weird hours and I could use it in the middle of the night without disturbing neighbors. I found that it can vibrate fiercely if in a high gear and pedaling hard, but that's no big deal. Like other reviewers, the remote didn't fit well on my handle bars, but that's not a big deal either. Unlike other reviewers, I found there was a huge difference when changing resistance levels with the shifter, which I loved.
BUT... I sent it back.
My problem was that I didn't know a mag trainer wasn't best for my workouts. Mag trainers can only handle a certain amount of "wattage," which is a fancy term for how hard you can pedal. Anything beyond the mag trainer's limit results in a jerky feeling when pedaling. I have no way of knowing what the wattage I put out is, but I know I could not stand and pedal. Not being able and pedeal smoothly is a deal breaker for me. I tired shifting to heaviest setting on the trainer itself, but it just did not work out for me.
So back it went and my search began for a fluid trainer.
After purchasing a cheap fluid trainer, I discovered what no online review ever clarified on why they are different from from high-end fluid trainers: One thing reviewers say is "road-like feel". This is a terribly vague term, but one aspect of what they mean is when you stop pedaling, the wheel keeps spinning. This is because rollers on high-end trainers are weighted. So in even more basic terms, it's like you're coasting as you would on the road when you stop pedaling.
On cheap trainers (either mag or fluid), when you stop, the wheel and roller stop. This will make you work harder. While that sounds like a good thing for fitness goals, it is extra unnecessary work. Even the best of us will have to pause to take a break during a hard workout from time to time. The best I can describe is it feels similar to being on the road and pedaling uphill, stopping then starting up the hill again. On the road that is brutal and my least favorite thing on rides. I live in a city that is moderately hilly so you would think I would be used to it, but I hate it.
The simple solution if on a cheap trainer is to shift down to a lower gear if you need a break. It's best not to stop during a workout anyway, but like everyone else I have my moments.
I can't say what is best for anyone, but I will say that I ended up with the Cycleops Fluid 2 trainer. It was my 3rd and final trainer and I love it!! Now I'm not distracted by the trainer and how it is functioning. Instead, I can focus on my workouts.
If you're strictly concerned about cost, go with the Conquer Pro for its ease of set up. It's a solid mag trainer. Lower-end fluid trainers are only a little bit more money and worth it in my opinion. I recommend trying PerformanceBike.com who had a FANTASTIC sale! They also answered all of my questions when I called an actual store. Ultimately, I ended up with the trainer I was trying to avoid paying for, but I have no regrets about it.
