There is no reason why you cannot exercise with your bike when the weather outside is bad. This magnetic resistance bike trainer converts your bike into an indoor cycling trainer. It offer effective indoor training in a stiff, well supported steel frame. This trainer is easy to set up with almost any bike--including road and mountain bikes with a 26", 27", or 700c wheel. Fine-tune to your wheel and tire size with the micro-adjust knob. As you pedal, the internal magnet creates resistance, with 5 levels of resistance. You can change them right from your handle bars.

2. It's cheap. Unless you're a pro or have the extra money to throw around, just get this. I haven't used any other units like this but I rather imagine you'd still pedal your bike the same way on any of them.
3. It offers pretty good resistance thru its range. Gear up if it's not enough. If it's still not enough, you don't need one, go out and play. I'd rather be out riding but it's 115 degrees out and, well, that's enough said about that.
4. There's no problem with the bike "falling off" this stand. I weigh 240 (right now) and have no problems with it. It's VERY stable.
5. I imagine the spinning thing under the tire gets hot. Let's see... spin something really fast - it gets hot. Do I care? No. Do I need to go touch it when I'm done pedaling? No.
6. Get the wheel block at the same time. I didn't. I should have. Even the 3" or so the back tire is off the ground makes a difference. Or gouge out a 2x4. I don't care.
7. And remember: If this thing is like most other exercise equipment we all buy and then turn into dust collecting clothes hangers, the 60 or 70 bucks this thing costs won't hurt as much as a treadmill or elliptical or recumbent bike.

Be VERY CAREFUL if you purchase this product as when those plastic pieces fail, the bike could fall off the stand and perhaps cause the rider to fall off the bike...it could be a SAFETY HAZARD if that occurs...especially for a person of mature age (I am 68) who might not have the balance of a 40 year old.
In the interest of transparency and full-disclosure, I might have erred when I informed the seller that I am considered somewhat of an international expert when it comes to many types of plastics, and I informed them that the engineering specifications for these plastic parts was wrong because they used the wrong type of plastic...perhaps they did not appreciate being informed of their error and the denial of my claim might be their way of paying-me-back? If that is the case, then the seller seems to project a lack of professionalism in dealing with customers.
Bought this bike to be able to train indoors during the winter. I have an inexpensive mountain bike that I had planned to use for the stand. Set up was easy, though the instructions might be difficult for those that aren't mechanically inclined. It fit my 26 inch tire perfect. I loved it until I took my first "ride". The noise was horrible, as others had stated. I decided to try my folding bike with road tires instead.
When I tried to mount the 20" tires, the rotor wasn't even close.
Given the choice between buying a new tire or modifying the stand, I choose to modify the stand.
Armed with a drill and two pieces for 3/16" steel plate, I extended the rotor assembly about 2 inches. This took about an hour or so and cost about 5 dollars.
After a short reassembly, I mounted the folding bike and climbed on. The stand worked perfectly and was very quiet! I adjusted the workout levels and they worked fine.
This is a inexpensive, quality bike trainer the will give you a nice workout if you aren't a competition rider. The manufacture should sell an extension kit for the rotor to allow for various bike tire sizes.
