Elite Magnetic Cycle Trainer
Pleased with purchase
After looking at loads of trainers, eventually opted for this. Very happy I did, didnt need to spend any more to get one that was up to the job and not half as loud as I expected. Even at full pace it's just a humming noise, not annoying anyone in the house at all. Seconds to fit bike in and out, very stable once in. Worth pointing out for anyone I'm using original slick tyre on 700 x 23 rim and all is well!

Open the Box
Well if your going to buy this item make sure you open the box before leaving the store.
The instruction manual that came with mine has some blank pages which, typically are the ones with the english instructions on pages 12 & 13
There is 3 screws that should come within the box - mine had 2
If anybody is going to be within 2 miles of you during use you may find a knock from the environmental health due to noise pollution - Very very noisy.

ideal for a wet spring
I was driven to get this by the endless rainy days in April and it really does let you work out. Most impressed

Does everything expected, and very much cheaper than buying an exercise bicycle.
Can be used in all weathers, and gives a full workout without the elements, so one has no excuse to start a fitness programme.
The ability of increasing the tension is a usefull feature.

I spent quite a while looking for a trainer that could be used easily at home.
The Halfords Mag machine seemed to fit the bill.
I was not disappointed and found it very straight forward to assemble. It is very well made with high quality materials giving a first rate riding experience. I would suspect that it will give many years of use. I soon realised I should change my off road tyres for road ones, which cuts down noise considerably. All in all I am very happy and my training regime is now on track!

Well Done Halfords Putney Road Leicester
Tried to purchase an entry level cycle trainer today. Two local stores were not helpful, wouldn't let me try before buy.
The guys at Putney Road branch here in Leicester were brill. They built one up in the shop while I waited and put a bike on it for me to try. The staff at this branch were a credit to Halfords.
As for the product, I've only just started using it today and it seems ideal for my purpose. Easy to set up and with the money I saved I fitted a speedo and cadence computer.
