          I love this trainer! I had a simple trainer before, but I couldn't change tension and resistance without getting off the bike. This is definitely an upgrade. There are some cons, but the trainer is still worth it. CONS - I had to put it together myself. It's an awkward shaped device and not the easiest to do given limited instructions - Instruction manuals could be a bit more elaborate - The box should say that this runs optimally with Apple TV mirroring for streaming to a large screen. If you are using a tablet or phone then it's not an issue at all. - Wasn't a fan of Rouvy, too much lag SUGGESTIONS - For $600 sell it with a cross platform Bluetooth dongle. It would be helpful for the households that have Android and Apple technology - For $600 I shouldn't have to buy the stabilizing block separately PROS - this trainer once set up properly gives a REAL workout. You feel the hills, the dips, and flats because the tensions and automatic resistance is evident. - it's easy to store. - easy to swap different bikes in and out. - I love using Zwift with it. - I love the fact that you can join other riders and create your own groups with friends that have the trainer. - I love that I get an intense workout without leaving my house. - I love that I can transition from my house to the road on my bike and work out the custom fitting. Unlike taking a spin class and fiddling with the bike until it feels right. OVERALL - My advice is this is a GREAT addition if you don't have Peleton Money to spend and you want to ride your customized bike in and out of the house.

                    Good cost-benefit relationship, for the smart-trainers class. The resistance works fine in ERG mode via Zwift; other apps did not work well for me. Good product overall. I had been a happy user of the SuperMagneto Pro for 4 years. This new model, Magnos trainer, isn't as sturdy as the Pro series; its materials are more fragile and feel cheap in comparison. Besides, the "road feeling" of the Pro is superior, specially in high power, low speeds. It is also much noisier than the Pro, specially at higher speeds (hint: I found that if you select lighter gears, the trainer will adapt the resistance likewise, but the the rear wheel will spin at lower RPM and there will be much less noise).

                      Bought this at my local bike shop. Reasonably easy to setup, the only gripe is it's not preassembled. Product works as promised. Would recommend to a friend.

                        The Magnus excels at simulating cycling when conditions, weather, time, or other priorities don't allow for getting outside. The accompanying software allows for programmed workouts that can emphasize strength, cardio endurance, increasing vo2, increasing LT, etc. Or it can be used to simulate a particular route or race. The many options keep indoor training from getting monotonous. The wheel on trainer is easy to set-up, use, calibrate and ride. I look forward to time on the trainer as one of the best workouts I can get in small windows of time.
