              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.

                  Product was easy to assemble. I bought this specifically for Zwift and while it connected to my phone and PC right away on the Cycleops software. Zwift using the phone BLE proxy is not the best way to connect. I'd give 5 stars if it came with an ANT+ dongle.

                    This thing is pretty responsive for a trainer. I use it with zwift and it gives you a killer work out. If the weather is bad out or I don't want to load my bike up in the morning I just pick a course and ride on this.

                        Cycleops could at least create a PDF manual online with all the instructions in one place. They could have links to the videos in the PDF at the appropriate places.

                        I bought this at the local bike store after reviewing various products. I had a cycle ops fluid trainer before, and threw it away after excessive leaking. The hardware was easy to setup, maybe 20min total. But i could not figure out how to sync it with my laptop. I think it is a bluetooth issue, but laptop doesnt have Bluetooth. Suspect there is some plug in adapter i need, but haven't been able to find exactly what I need. I hope I can figure it out, because the video is awesome, projected onto large wall.
