1upUSA

Any opinions on the 1upUSA trainer, the advertising sounds almost too good to be true. The part about no resistance at slow speeds is what's selling me. I'm a grandmother and I need to build myself up gradually. Thanks in advance for any replies.

I'm a grandfather (58) and have a CycleOps Magneto trainer. I want resistance at every speed. At slow speeds (warm up and cool down) I still want a little resistance.

I just bought a 1upusa trainer, my thread just below this one (trainer problems...) lists the fun i've had with it, but of course this may not be everyone's experience of it. The good thing about the 1upusa is of course that you can get your money back including the postage if you don't you get on with it.

the link to the thread is:

trainer problems (long)...

Thanks for your replies. Trainer came a couple of days ago. It's everything they said it would be in their advertising. We even called the toll free number during the setup and they were very helpful. I absolutely love it. So far no problems, if anything changes we will post it.
