This trainer is easy to set up, and bomber. I got this after comparing a lot of different models, and I'm glad I decided to spend more on something that will last forever. One thing I was pleased with is that I can even mount my 29er on it with a smaller size slick tire. I haven't used a lot of trainers, but would certainly recommend this one to anyone looking for one that will be used extensively, and who needs the flexibility to be able to put any size bike on it. It is expensive, but after looking at cheaper versions at a local bike shop, you do get what you pay for. This one will last for years where I could see some less expensive models wearing out in as little as one or two seasons.
