Tech Mag 1 Trainer
All cyclists, even the hardest of the hard, must eventually make concessions to circumstances beyond their control. Boonen had to abandon on the way to Roubaix in 2011, Cancellara had to climb off prematurely in Flanders in 2012, and many of us here at Competitive retire annually from the road for the northern Utah winter. We're sure that Boonen and Cancellara enjoyed the support of a network of friends, family, and professionals during their downtime, but many other cyclists of less mythical standing, when forced off the road by winter conditions, find solace in the Blackburn Tech Mag 1 Trainer.
Blackburn understands that trainers serve a strictly utilitarian purpose, so the Tech Mag 1 was designed for simplicity and ease of use. It comes pre-assembled and has one, optimized setting of magnetic resistance. This final part is ultimately what defines the Tech Mag 1 as a utilitarian machine. It's designed to maintain your base through the winter, not to accommodate complicated training regimes and interval schedules. This means you don't have to constantly babysit resistance. Instead, you can zone out, re-watch for the millionth time that 1989 Tour footage on your garage TV, and dream of the coming spring classics.
If you're riding indoors, the Tech Mag 1's rubber feet protect your floor surface and its folding, lightweight design allows for discreet storage in any closet or under the bed. A steel skewer is provided to protect your own quick release mechanism. Its tapered cones fit most dropouts.

Does the Job
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I got this for my friend and she loves it. It fit her bike perfectly and now she can pedal inside during the winter for a workout. No complaints!
Lost a lot of lbs with this trainer
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This trainer is perfect if you are trying to stay in bike shape over the winter or if you are wanting a quick cardio option at you home. The price is pretty amazing for how great this trainer worked out for me. I used a 27.5 MTB on this trainer, other than a little noise I have no complaints at all. Buy it.
Will this work on a 29er MTB bike? Do I need special tires or anything else? I've never used one of these but need it to recover from hamstring injury.
Is this suitable for a wider tire such as a Mountain Bike's (26"X1.95")?
I have this same trainer and use a 2.1 tire and it works great. I recommend using a slick tire.
