There’s nothing like cycling in the outdoors. Unfortunately though, there are times when riding outside just isn’t going to work.
The weather may be against you, or maybe your schedule means that the only time you’ve got to ride is late at night, when it’s dark outside. What you need is a means of converting your outdoor cycle into an indoor cycle. Well, that’s exactly what the Magnet Steel indoor Exerciser Trainer Stand is made for.
Let’s check it out.
Stability – The Magnet Steel Bike Bicycle Indoor Exercise Trainer Stand offers an extremely stable riding experience. A lot of indoor trainers allow side to side movement of the cycle, but the Magnet Steel holds the bike upright even when you are pedaling at top speed. The unit is capable of handling 220 pounds of weight. It has a heavy duty steel frame that will withstand years of wear and tear.
Resistance – The Magnet Steel bicycle trainer stands provides you with 5 internal resistance settings. The state of the art magnet system provides progressive magnetic resistance, which challenges you by increasing the resistance as the speed increases. This is very impressive for a trainer that you can pick up for well less than a hundred bucks. It may not offer the range of resistance of a fluid based trainer, but those models are more than price the price of this one.
Comfort – The Magnet Steel bike exerciser is very easy to set up and attach to your bike. Once you operate the system, you will hear very little noise, allowing you to watch TV, listen to music or read a book without distraction.
Smooth Mechanism – Unlike many models, there is no jerkiness to the pedaling motion once you apply the Magnet Steel to your bike. You’ll get a challenging smooth workout, with intensifying resistance as you pedal faster that is as close to the real road experience as you’re likely to find. It’s also important to note that the flywheel doesn’t overheat on this unit, even after you’ve been training intensely.

Needs Road Adaptor – The Magnet Steel Bike Bicycle Indoor Exercise Trainer Stand is primarily designed as a trainer to match mountain bikes. For best use with a road bike, you’ll have to purchase an adaptor which is designed to fit the quick release skewer which the majority of road bikes have. If you don’t use the adaptor, the bike will not be as securely mounted in position on the trainer.
Instruction Manual – Even though installation is pretty straight forward, the manual was obviously written by someone who’s native language was not English, making it quite tricky to follow.
The Magnet Steel Indoor Exerciser Trainer is a very effective option for converting your outdoor cycle to an indoor exercycle. It doesn’t provide the bells and whistles of more premium models, but you will not beat the price for a basic performer that does what it is designed to do. We definitely recommend this one.
