The manufacturer of this trainer is Bike Lane, a relatively small company that only offers 2 main products; the bike trainer and a bike hoist. So it brings into question either it is solely concentrating on 2 products to make them perfect or they lack experience to develop a wider range. It seems to be the former as this product is definitely up there in terms of the best indoor trainers I have seen. This trainer boasts a fantastic range of 7 different resistance settings allowing riders to alter it depending on their experience or level of training. It also claims to have the finest materials with proven reliability, this is something our customer reviews back up. It claims to be the strongest unit on the current market and is very light to allow storage and movability which is a key selling point. As when purchasing a trainer a customer wants to be able to fold away and move the unit but without compromising quality. And this trainer certainly does that. It also comes with a quick release skewer and uses the magnetic resistance system. Also, it comes with separated legs to improve the stability and a quick release pedal system to keep the tire pressure equal.
Personally I love this trainer, it looks great and it looks extremely stable and the bars are thick to aid this. The fact it has 7 resistance settings is a real bonus to the system as it allows beginners and advanced riders to set the trainer up to meet their needs.
The only down side to this product is the size, it is relatively large in comparison the others and I prefer fluid trainers as magnetic resistors do not always give a truly realistic outdoor feel. But for a beginner it seems perfect. I give this trainer 3 wheels out of 5!
