CycleOps Mag+ Trainer with Adjuster
When winter has arrived each year, most of us cyclist wind up in a jumble when it comes to staying fast and on form. We come across magazine articles and countless internet pieces that swear to us that the only way to truly train during the off-season is to ride long, slow rides in order to achieve base mileage. There is no denying that the best and most effective way to train during the cold months is to get out and ride. However, for many of us non-pro cyclists, as the days grow shorter, darker, wetter and colder, yet our work hours stay the same, our riding time and motivation is undoubtedly cut short. For those of us who don't simply have the time to ride during daylight hours and don't fancy riding in the chill and low visibility of the dark hours, the answer is indoor training. Luckily for us, indoor training is the name of the game for CycleOps.
The Mag+ Trainer allows you to turn your bike into more than a fair-weathered friend, but into the perfect solution to sneaking in a ride when the conditions outside are less than desirable. The Mag+ sets up quickly and easily for on-the-spot spins before and after a race or triathlon. With five adjustable levels of linear resistance to accommodate your workout, the Mag+ makes it easy to vary your workouts and offers a more on-the-road feel. A bar-mounted remote shifter allows you to change resistance levels without ever leaving the saddle. The Mag+ is built with the same sturdy, steel construction and safety features as all of the CycleOps trainers, providing you peace of mind as you train and work toward your goals. The Mag+ is more than just a trainer, it's a lifelong workout buddy!

Overall, this product is excellent. The setup is quick and painless, the remote is simple but very effective, and overall I'm very pleased with the trainer.
The downsides? Having to switch your rear axle skewer, which is only a minor a hassle. That and if your bike tubes are rather substantial, getting the "remote" to stay on securely takes some minor adjusting.
That being said, the trainer is pretty quiet (For a trainer) and resistance can be adjusted by both the remote and by how much contact you have between the tire and the roller.
Fits both my touring bike (27") and my road bike (700c) so I'm very happy with it.
