"I was skeptical about paying so much when I already had a fluid trainer, but using it with Zwift is fun, and seeing the power calculation is great. I've never trained with power before, and this is like getting a power meter, in addition to being able to play on Zwift. With this trainer, the Zwift app will show you going uphill, and the pedaling actually becomes harder!"alicefoeller

There is a bit of setup if you want to pair other technology you have, such as a fitness watch or cadence sensor. The trainer itself comes fully assembled and doesn't need any setup.

It's easy to get the bike in and out, and the company seems to have been thoughtful in the placement of things, including the electrical connection.

The flywheel is a lot heavier than similar options. The stand is also very heavy and made of metal. Nothing is plastic or cheap. Well, the electrical housing is plastic. But not cheap.

Works great on its own, and even better hooked up to Zwift. Now riding alone can be social!

Very well constructed. Easy to get the bike in. Since most people purchase a smart trainer to connect to other technology, more than 2 sentences in the manual would have been helpful. I had the trainer plugged in and the bike on it in a few minutes, but it took awhile to pair the technology and apps. An online setup guide with options for various fitness watches, apps and sensors would be good.

Unlike every other trainer I've used, this one "coasts" and doesn't come to a stop right away when you cease pedaling. The manual warns against using the brakes so you don't tear up your tire and breaks trying to stop the heavy flywheel. So far I've remembered, but it's strange to have the wheel continue spinning when I'm not pedaling on a trainer, and I keep reaching for the brake.
