Strengths:    Nice red paint.

Bottom Line:   
The Magnetic unit is JUNK, put together with a wimpy pressed fitting. The unit was only slighty used and under moderate stress it had a meltdown just before the ajustment knob flew across the garage. NOT GOOD.

Strengths:    Customer service is excellent. Unit is sturdy. It's cheaper than other trainers, but....

Weaknesses:    ... you get what you pay for, I guess. Did not hold up. Why can't someone design a bullet-proof trainer that won't cost you an arm and a leg???

Bottom Line:   
The first one began getting really noisy after about 2 months of steady use. My LBS sent it back to Blackburn (Bell) for a replacement. The replacement now is even noisier and the bearings seem to be going. Bell is going to refund my money. They were a pleasure to deal with. The trainer worked ok, but if you're spending $150 on a tool, which is really what this device is, it should last a long, long time.
