I am a first time bike trainer customer. I already have a road bike and cleats, etc., to ride outdoors. Do I need any equipment other than a trainer like this one to ride indoors? For example, this page suggests a trainer thru-axle, trainer tire, and training block. Is it necessary to buy any additional equipment like this or is everything I need included with the trainer itself?

Will this trainer accommodate a Fuji SL2.3 or a Raleigh Capri Road Bikes?

- I've used it several times
Here in the desert southwest our prime season for riding outdoors is fall, winter, and spring. Summer temps can be too hot to ride outside unless you can, and are willing to get up before sunrise, which isn't always possible. The answer? The Kinetic Road Machine Smart 2. This trainer is very quiet and has a very nice "road feel". It paired seamlessly to the The Sufferfest after purchasing an ANT+ dongle (USB 2) and a 3m USB cable. It also paired easily to my Bryton 410 Heart Rate Monitor. Overall, this is a great trainer for the money.

Works with Zwift, Garmin, etc.
- I've put it through the wringer
Primary use is for bad weather in winter to train, once I upgraded the sensor on the back of the trainer (from old black one to new green one), I discovered I could use this trainer in Zwift and also for my Garmin 520 plus, they both pickup power and speed, using either ANT+ or bluetooth. This doe not have an "ERG" mode, it's a manual, fluid trainer, so it can only get 4 stars. Cheap when on sale and it does the job, if you want 5 stars, get a Top level trainer that has ERG mode (TACX, etc.). After 6+ months of use and over 1,000+ miles, one worn out road tire (these eat regular tires!), and one worn out trainer tire, I can say from experience, ensure you get a high quality, trainer specific tire. They last way longer than regular road use tires. Glad I got this Kinetic trainer, worth it and Zwift is better than just grinding out miles looking at your Garmin bike computer!
