The Magnet Steel Indoor Exercise Trainer is a functional choice if you’re looking for a dependable bike trainer. The device features five distinct internal resistance settings that enable you to be in control of every workout session. In addition, the unit is compatible with the greater majority of mountain and road bikes with 27-inch, 26-inch, and 700c tires. Due to an adjustable knob, you can regulate the resistance of your bike from your handlebars. In spite of its massive frame, the trainer can be stored wherever and may also be effortlessly transported. If you wish to read about our experience with the product, keep on reading this review.
- Adjustable knob that facilitates a precise fit
- Five different resistance settings
- Entry-level stand
- The bike trainer may be quite noisy
- When standing, the item may wobble
- It doesn’t have a climbing block included
Concurrently, the item was quite easy to set up, which is a convenient feature. Nonetheless, we did realize that linking the cable to the handlebars may be quite challenging.
Unfortunately, we also noticed that the stand isn’t particularly stable, due to its small size. In spite of that, considering the price-quality ratio, we weren’t disappointed with the overall performance of the product. Certainly, other bike trainers ensure improved performance and stability, but the prices reflect that.
With regards to noise, other customers found that when they changed from hybrid to road tires, the noise was significantly diminished, but, not completely. That is primarily why working out with your headphones may be a good idea if you don’t wish to be troubled by the excessive noise.
In addition to that, the height ratio from the front to the rear tire was notable, which required some customers to place something under the front wheel in order to level out. Additionally, when we wanted to do some speed work, the item was pretty unstable.
Considering all these features, we would recommend this bike trainer only to people on a budget who don't need a larger and more sturdy trainer, and those who don't mind the noise. I would say this trainer is best suited for use in the garage, as you'd likely drive anyone else in the house nuts.
