Please see my blog for a full review with photos ([@]).I had planned on writing up a complete review of the setup process for the Giant Cyclotron Auto II bike trainer, but it was honestly so simple that before I new it, the trainer was completely setup and I was ready to give it a test ride!The first thing I noticed during a 10 mile test ride was how stable my bike felt on the trainer. The bike did not move under me at all. I will feel very comfortable working hard on this machine without worrying about falling over, sliding around or hurting my bike (which has deep sentimental value to me).Secondly, I noticed that the resistance adjusted to the gear that I rode in. A higher gear produced greater resistance and vice versa. Before trying the trainer, I wondered if the higher gears would just feel really easy, but they do not! The resistance is strong, and I was working up a sweat almost immediately. It was also quite nice not to have to worry about adjusting the resistance settings part way through a workout. The "auto" aspect of this trainer is highly convenient.Finally, as other online reviews have said, this trainer is pretty quiet. I set it up in my basement, and I'm sure someone upstairs wouldn't be able to hear it. I also had no trouble hearing my tiny little TV speaker sitting nearby.So after my first few rides, I'm very happy with this trainer. Setup was incredibly easy and took me about 10 minutes. Riding is comfortable, quiet, stable and challenging. I'd highly recommend this model to others. And at the sale price of [$]I think I've gotten a great value for my money.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
