    QuickStand Trainer

    While I was at the CarolinaTT at Lowes Motor Speedway in Charlotte, NC back in August, I saw someone on the most basic looking trainer I had ever seen. A QuickStand Trainer. So I go looking for them online, and I can't find a thing. Well, I found an outdated imitation-yellowbook site that had the company and their phone number. I call it today and the number has apparently been disconnected. So have they gone the way of the dinosaurs?

    Whoops! I do suppose pictures would help! Here are a few!






    Great unit. Folds up pretty skinny, adjusts easily to a few different sizes of wheels. Only downside is that I need to use two fairly high powered fans to keep it cool. one directly on the magnet and the other on the wheel.

    Looks good, I like the minimalist design. How hot does it get? And how much did it cost?

    Well, I've done my research and the company appears to be out of business. They were based in Florida. As for what it cost, I happened to stumble across a craigslist ad on a google search for someone selling on on the western side of the country. After a number of emails, and payment, they shipped it to where I am on the East Coast. Since it was bought from someone, I paid about $110. I hear that they ran about $200-250 new.

    Well, if I don't have the fan aimed directly on the magnet, after about a 10 minute sprint, I think I could have fried a small egg on the magnet housing. So it gets really hot without a fan on it. But as long as you keep things away from the magnet, it's fine.

    I will say this, the gap in one side of the locking assembly, where your skewer handle can go through. I had to takemy dremel and grind the gap wider for my skewers. Thinner skewer handles would work fine, and mine did too, but it just felt a little unstable to me before I fixed it.

    Good luck finding one. It took me nearly a month to find the one I did. But they are out there!
