Has anyone heard of Thinkrider trainers?

I recently sighted on a pretty cheap yet seemingly sturdy power meter trainer. When I asked the guys, they gave me a 50 dollars coupon too, so I will end only playing like 450. Has anyone used it or heard of it, would love to have some feedback before I purchase. Thanks. kev.

Never seen or heard of them but the first link on the googles was to the youtubes and the second was in Chinese or Taiwanese characters so my confidence isn't super high. Plus the picture looks like it is a cheap Wahoo knockoff so my confidence keeps going further down.

The price seems too high for cheap knockoff junk and too low for a quality smart trainer. Cycleops, Blackburn, Minoura, Tacx, Wahoo, Kurt Kinetic and Elite all make fine trainers that are usually well reviewed or known quantities, go with one of them. If you want rollers, Kreitler supposedly makes the best but Feedback Sports, Blackburn and Minoura make some hybrids that hook your wheel at the front which would be a little bit of both worlds. This trainer however goes on my don't buy list. If you want to start a company to make bike trainers, go for it but to basically steal someone else's design and slap your logo on it is just wrong.

Hmm, let’s see...
Product name? Check.
Price/quality reference? Check.
Mentioned the discount coupon? Check.

Solid effort on the shill post! Well played!
