I'm selling my beloved CycleOps Magneto Turbo Trainer simply because I want more data. I've been eyeing up the Tacx Flow for a while now, so the CycleOps has to go. I just hope I don't regret it.
It's a super simple, quiet and tough turbo that just hasn't had the use it deserves.
There is no wear to the drum, and there is only a scratch on the leg from transporting it to HOP.
It's in excellent condition.

£125 (RRP £200)
Collection from Twickenham.

Review from Road Cycling UK
Using Power Band Technology the Magneto gives a broad range of adjustment without having to twiddle any knobs. Out of the box we were immediately impressed, lifting it clear of the polystyrene packaging it feels heavy which is very reassuring. And it's easy to setup; fold out the legs attach the flywheel, bolt in the bike, and away you go. The feet can be rotated to allow for uneven floors. Clever and very simple.
The lever to clamp the bike in place is solid and is one of the best solutions in the Turbo market. Anyone can use it and it works effortlessly.
There's no adjustable resistance with this model, instead you get progressive resistance which varies with your cadence and gear choice, through something CycleOp's call Power Band Technology. It works fine we like the simple no nonsence approach.
In conclusion...

For the price, the Magneto is hard to beat; it's simple to setup and use, works perfectly and folds away in a second.
