When you add up how many minutes (or hours) a day we spend sat stationary in our cars, vans etc (in traffic queues, waiting at lights, roundabouts, junctions, accidents and roadworks) and it seems that waiting a few seconds to (safely) pass a cyclist because they're 'in the way' is unacceptable. Who's the knob head!

I have this exact turbo trainer and it does everything I need. The only issue I have with it is that the resistance adjuster thingie is a bit plasticky and difficult to shift easily.

It's also super duper hard on the higher resistances - I'd say I keep it on number 3 most of the time and that's good for a general workout
It looks very uncomfortable to sit on

As per description above - Universal fit for wheels with diameter 600 to 710 mm. So yes, it will.

You just need to use with a slick tyre.
