Delighted with this trainer.
Very stable in use, strong enough to promote complete confidence, not worried about it collapsing under me and the bike.
Folds into a small size to store when not being used.

10 adjustable tension settings so plenty of room for adjustment and improvement during use.
On mountain bike I leave on a medium setting and use the bikes gears.
On fixie I can use the trainers tension to choose the level of resistance.

So simple to set up, 2 bolts to put in and leave in place.
Only reason you need to do this yourself is there is a different position depending on size of wheel on bike.
Comes with a quick release skewer which my bike doesn't have and I won't use.
Can be used by changing the nuts on a bolt through hub but these cost an extra £15 if you shop around.
I would have liked to have had the option when placing the order as to what kind of fixing to purchase.

The Blue Matic is the intermediate model of the Blue cycletrainers. Its maximum resistance is 700 Watt. The Blue Matic has a magnetic brake with permanent-magnets. You set the resistance selecting one of the ten different positions via the handlebar resistance lever. During your training session the resistance increases as you cycle faster or switch to a heavier setting. The robust frame stands firmly on the ground and it is very user friendly because the trainer can be assembled in no time at all.

Magnetic brake
The magnetic brake has a simpler braking system and is therefore ideal for straightforward training sessions such as warming up before a race and endurance training. The road is simulated using different positions that you adjust yourself.
The Blue Matic's magnetic brake consists of two discs with 8 permanent-magnets each. With the 10 position handlebar resistance lever you can change the position of the magnets in the brake unit in relation to each other. While training the resistance increases when you cycle faster and/or in a heavier mode. The maximum resistance is 700 Watt.
