Good robust, easy to use and fairly quiet turbo trainer.
Took a small amount of fiddling to stop it wearing the rear tyre, but over all a good purcase.
I was looking for a low cost trainer to get me through the winter and this turned out to be perfect. Very quick delivery and took me about 30 mins to set up start to finish (and I'm shocking at stuff like that!). Slightly noisy but no worse than expected and make sure you have a mat down if using indoors as will emit some black dust from mag unit. Overall very happy with my buy.
What a great little machine! Treated myself to an early Christmas present and wish I'd bought one of these a long time ago. My first experience of a turbo trainer and can thoroughly recommend the Tacx as a sturdy and easy to use model. It has proved an excellent rehabilitation and training aid following a knee operation. Great value for money - Why spend more!
Great, not to loud, smooth cycling and looks good.
Setup was pretty simple.
Great product delivered quickly and packaged well. The trainer itself is rock solid and the variable resistance works very well. Easy to assemble although the instructions aren't the best. Overall I'm delighted with my buy and would recommend both the trainer and Merlin Cycles. Thanks guys
Does the job it was advertised to do. Relatively easy to assemble, although the diagram relating to fitting the dynamo to the frame could have been clearer
I broke my arm while out riding 8 weeks ago and unfortunately I am unable to ride outdoors until after Christmas. I needed a turbo trainer to stop me from going insane from being cooped up indoors. The Tacx T-1820 while not having some of the features of more expensive units allows me to train every day while recovering from my injuries. (Its hard work with one arm in a sling though). Its also relatively quiet and has all the features I needed and the price........WOW!
A great product and one I can happily recommend.
Great piece of kit, does the job.
excellent - simple trainer-well made - solid as a rock - headphones on and off we go.
quiet enough not to wake our baby.
definitely a great option for someone who needs some exercise - and can't get out to do it.
delighted with my purchase.
(you don't need remote resistance changing - just drop a gear!)
An extremely efficient organisation, site and service. You even got the weather right on the day of delivery, it rained so didn't miss a days ' spinning' well done and thank you.
