"Overall, a terrifc product. Stores very compactly and sets up easily. Rides very well. Make sure your tires are inflated to the proper psi or the ride will not be good."jdwright56

(5)

Ease of installation

1 Page of directions took about 10 minutes.

(5)

Ease of use

Lock the bike in, get on and ride.

(4)

Quality of Construction

Very sturdy - a little apprehensive about getting out of the saddle.

(5)

Durability

It has a great warranty and it seems to be running right along very well. I expected the fluid chamber to get quite warm, but it was nothing that you had to worry about touching.

(5)

Value

Compared to some of the other "top of the line" products, I got a great deal.

(4)

Appearance

It's a pretty sharp looking model. Mostly black with gold decals.

(4)

Customer Service

Haven't needed any yet. Went on the website to read a little about it and the FAQ. Seemed like a reprint of the instructions that came along. Either they have no other issues or they don't address them up front. No reason to believe it is the latter.

Performance

This thing is a good easy recovery ride and will also challenge you when you bring up the RPM and gearing. I did Spinervals "Uphill Grind" on this and I barely had enough leg left to get myself off of the bike. Compared to my old LeMond, it is a way truer workout.

Strengths

Very quiet and responsive machinery that is easy to put a bike into. Offers as much resistance as you will ever want.

Weakness

If your cycloputer is attached to your front wheel, you are out of luck. Forced me to by a new computer to go on the back wheel, but I needed to start monitoring cadence more closely anyway.
