When I pedal it feels like I'm on a long (never ending) hill, which I suppose is the point.
Assembly was easy. Set up was easy. Pedaling is hard.
With many "new" items, there are always specs and bugs and mismatches it seems that are extant. Here the first thing that comes to my mind is "a $300+ unit with a $2 set of directions." Not sure exactly what else I was expecting. It gets two stars for being apparently smooth in the operation. But it doesn't have that "wow" factor, and I won't spend much over $300 for a trainer. Honestly, it will almost certainly go back. The dismaying thing is this: in 35 years, I'm fairly certain I have NEVER sent ANYTHING BACK to Performance. I hate that this unit will not be part of my collection and is my sole return to a company I rever. Again, sorry for saying this, as your products are outstanding! Not this one, per se.
