I bought a Mag+ last year (the one with the adjustable resistance) and used it a few times, with the intention of really getting some work done on it this winter. I recently bought one of the CTS DVDs and had a great time going through the workout.
The issue I had was with the mag trainer set to the most difficult position and using my largest gears - 52/11, it wasn't as much of a work out as it appeared to be for those on the film. And I'm not that good. It wasn't easy, but the riders on the screen really were working were as I seemed to have it easy.
Could there be a problem with my trainer - it does seem to make a lot of noise and the manufacturer's website indicates that it is supposed to be very quiet.
Any thoughts - do I have a bad trainer or should I be looking at one of these new fluid units???
Anyone had similar experiences??
