Arrived in 3 days via FedEX.
Just finished setting it up and trying it out with my mountain bike. Printed instructions were unclear, but setup is easy to figure out.
Once set up, installing the bicycle into the stand takes a couple minutes or so. The stand holds the bike securely, I never felt uneasy or unbalanced.
The tire roller is a little noisy. Installed on carpet, it makes a "whooshing" sound that increases in pitch as you pedal faster. I bet it would be much louder on hardwood or tiled floors.
Bike's front and rear derailleur gears all work as expected. Have not yet tried to adjust the roller resistance.
No speedo or distance functions as the front wheel of course does not turn.
Overall, this thing will be great in the icy Wisconsin winters (or during its withering summer heat waves) and hopefully leave couch potatoing behind when watching TV. An economic device for anyone who wants to exercise in adverse conditions.
