"Easy to assemble and easy to use.
Once assembled the Sirius is very solid and stable even when pushing hard out of the saddle.
When not in use it fold down to a slim package about 4 or 5 inches deep making it easy to store, and if you have bought the front wheel stand/riser from Tacx that locks into place when the unit is folded and can be used as a carry handle.
The Sirius comes with a quick release skewer designed to fit the clamp system on the main unit so don't do like I did and buy the skewer seperately unless you want a spare.
"
Pros: Durable, High Quality, Rugged, Adjustable, Good Fit

Do I have to buy a trainer tyre?

I'm thinking of buying a turbo trainer but don't want to faff about changing the rear tyre every time I switch from trainer to road. Can I use a trainer with just my normal tyre or is the performance compromised by not using a 'special' trainer tyre?
I use the Sirius with a normal road tyre and haven't noticed any abnormal wear or loss of performance so go ahead and use the trainer as is - there's no real need to use a trainer tyre unless you have sticky, expensive race tyres that you don't want to use with it.
