Rated 4 out of 5 by Tim Exactly what we're looking for
My wife wanted something that she could use in the winter to keep active. We didn't want to spend a pile of money as we just have low end mountain bikes. Setup was easy. They suggest removing your axle and using their basically, if you have a lower end/cheap mountain bike WITHOUT quick release, don't bother. You can still easily mount your fixed rear wheel in there.
The only thing to keep in mind is that standard mountain bike tires will be noisy. You might want to get a smooth tire for this. The five resistance settings are perfect. I would've given it five stars if the instructions were more thorough (and addressed the fact that not every bike has a quick release option), and if a simple DVD was available that I could watch while riding of different landscapes, or trails or some such.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bikeguy2014 Awesome product and value
This is my second one of these. Lost part of my original one when I moved, so to say this is my second one should say something about the product. I am very happy with it's performance has been updated since I purchased my first one. I was very happy to see this revision but unhappy that I could not purchase the remote accessory to change the resistance settings while riding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by siegs08 Great value
I wasn't sure how well this trainer would work for its price, nbut i was quite surprised how easy to put together and easy to use it was. very simple to connect my bike and start riding. I am only able to ride once or twice a week, so this works well. i would suggest buying the support for the front wheel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jacob Nice trainer for basic use
Bought for use just watching tv or to get a lil cardio in. I haven't ridden much on a trainer before or have much to compare to, but I'm satisfied for the price. I'm sure there's better trainers out there but for under $100 it does the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nikeygirl Problem with Mt . Bikes
If you have a Mt Bike with the knobby tires the trainer will not work well. The tires make a really loud noise . If you reduce the tension then there is not enough resistance . If you tighten the tension then the whole bike vibrates . Change to a smoother / flat tire on the back and then switch back when you are ready to ride outside .

Rated 5 out of 5 by rceard Happy with store assistance, happy with product
I had a great experience when purchasing the Graber Magnetic Resistance Bike Trainer! I went into the Dick's Store in Richfield, MN, and couldn't be happier with how quickly I was helped, my questions answered, and how quickly I was helped through the checkout process.
Will shop there again - very satisfied!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Biker Bike trainer
This is a good bike trainer for the money. I did not want to spend a lot of money and this was perfect. Somewhat noisy but over all a great purchase. Just what I was looking for to get me through the winter month's. The trainer was easy to set up

Is extremely loud. Other than that it works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by misskrister Basic is best
More expensive packages include this basic bike support frame, but the frame is really all you need to create a stationary excercise bike from your road bike. Heavy duty and easy to use, without extraneous accesseries to lose.
