Hopeless cadence sensor and equally hopeless heart rate sensor despite using the most expensive ant+ coded chest straps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Borderboy Great indoor trainer with a wide range of settings to keep you interested
It's well known that some earlier batches of this trainer had problems with firmware/connectivity/function. But most do not. If you get a bod one, you'll know immediately so send it back.
Mine worked perfectly out of the box with no interference problems when in the same room as WIFI router and mobile phones. Three different main modes allow you to train focussed on power output (watts), resistance level or - in program mode - follow one of ten pre-set programs which vary resistance in 3-minute segments to provide a range of training options including recovery, active recovery, interval training and speed/power modes. I love the choice of options and the opportunity to vary the intensity or difficulty of each program as desired. It makes training more interesting and more worthwhile. I also love the information feedback - current/average/maximum speed + cadence + power output, trip and total distance, race and total time and, with heart rate belt, current/av/max heart rate and heart rate zone (in terms of 100% HR based on age).
Assembly is very straightforward and build quality is generally excellent though make sure you know what 2-3Nm of force actually is when assembling the roller unit onto the frame of the trainer - it's not very much folks! I've heard tale of people over-tightening here and cracking the plastic housing, but if you assemble according to instructions, then you won't have any worries.
The noise of the unit in operation is quiet - certainly below the level of a modern washing machine spin cycle - so really pretty good. Close a door and it wouldn't bother you in an adjacent room.
Build quality of the handlebar mounted computer is a bit flimsy, but then it's never going to be exposed to any weather, so treat it well and I can't see a problem in the long term.
Only minor downside is that to get all the benefits of this technology, you do need to plug in to a power source using a supplied (short c. 1.5m) mobile phone charger-style adapter and cable. You'll probably therefore need an extension cable in most situations.
With so much information feedback on performance I'd thoroughly recommend as a trainer for all those who would like to chart progress, train to specific goals, or relieve some of the intense boredom of many an indoor trainer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anatoly31 Cycle-computer loses connection
I got it as a gift for birthday. I disappointed.
The main feature of the trainer is wireless cycle-computer which displays speed, cadence, power and manages trainer's modes and settings. In my case the cycle-computer loses connection with trainer very often. For example, I rode 40 minutes, but the trainers displays race time equals only 7 minutes. Thus, data for 33 of 40 minutes was lost! Can you imagine 82% of data was lost!?
During riding I notice that the values on the screen sometimes are correct and refresh properly, but the most of time the values are frozen, several times the values become 0 and "--". As a result, I cannot use Program Mode totally, because default 45 minutes programs become several hours, I can use Power Mode and Level Mode partially, because changing settings apply with huge delay.
Guys, I don't recommend to buy this trainer. I would like to rid of this trainer and buy simple trainer without wireless computer, it will be more reliably.
