I purchased this fan because without it, the 3" alloy rollers that I purchased were way too easy. Without the fan, I was averaging 27 - 28 MPH without even elevating my HR. With the fan installed, I was able to dial in the exact amount of resistance I needed and that was great. I was also able to aim the fan towards my face for a nice cooling effect. Construction of the fan appeared to be of good quality.
Now for the bad... The fan noise is definitely loud, and it's a rattle type of noise too which I did find a bit offensive, even with headphones. I was willing to deal with the noise, but the biggest drawback for me was the loss of portability with this behemoth attached to the front. I need to be able to easily move and store the rollers after each use, and the giant fan on the front made moving the unit and storing it too difficult for me. The cost also seemed a bit excessive as well.
On paper, this fan is a good idea, but in reality, it is very impractical. A better idea would be a simple (and small) magnetic resistance unit driven off of the rear roller.(similar to another manufacturer's rollers)
I ended up returning the fan for a full refund. I did have to eat the return shipping cost, but I chalked it up to a lesson learned. Kudos to Jenson USA for a full and prompt refund.
PROS: Nice Cooling Effect, Adjustable, Good Resistance
