"This is a large box - fits bike, shoes, helmet, spares, foot pump, toolset ,....... difficult to fill actually.
I've had mine for nearly 2 years and have used it on a dozen trans Atlantic flights without a problem.
Very secure and strong, it also has good foam cushioning and strapping inside to keep everything safe. Wheel covers are also included.
Great price too. Bulky and heavier than some others but pro's outweigh this issue."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Rugged
Cons: Bulky

"I bought this with the intention of doing all-day & overnight B&B routes. It's a perfect platform for a medium-sized bag - large enough for snacks, a change of clothes & wash kit. The clamp fits my wider seat post perfectly and seems solid enough..... no rattles or vibrations. There are lighter beam racks available but the Axion stands out as good value."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Rugged, Good Fit
Cons: heavy

 CycleOps Classic Mag Turbo Trainer
CycleOps Classic Mag Turbo Trainer
Best value magnetic trainer on the market.
 

Ease of set up

This is my first venture into turbo trainers, and plan to use my Giant scr3 on the turbo.
Is there anything else I should get, ie. a training wheel, and how easily does the rear wheel fit onto to trainer?
Best answer
You don't have to get anything. The trainer comes with a skewer for the rear wheel. Bear in mind that the trainer will wear the rear tyre fairly heavily. Hope this helps.
