Advantages

Customize to Optimize

The Blackburn Tech Mag Race Trainer does a wonderful job in providing users with 3 resistance settings to choose from, as opposed to most affordable to mid-level trainers that claim to have progressive magnetic resistance. The option to choose resistance levels is precious for people who are forced to stay indoors because of weather conditions, instead of training outdoors.

Necessary Stability

To compare the old model that had a tubular design, this newer boxed frame does make a significant difference in terms of stability and the feeling of sturdiness while on your bike, as it is mounted on.

Portability and Easy Storage

Like all Blackburn trainers, the Tech Mag Race Trainer can easily be folded and stored in very small spaces. Moreover, it is very easy to assemble and disassemble. So, taking it on a business trip or vacation is a breeze.

Disadvantages

Where’s the Remote?

One of the things that I really liked with Blackburn Tech Mag Race Trainer is its handlebar-mountable resistance adjustment remote, does not come with a remote. You’ll either have to dismount to change settings, or as an alternative, shift your own bike’s gears.

Skinny and Smooth = Less Noise

Be prepared to hear the sound similar to a loud vacuum cleaner, if you plan to use a mountain bike with knobby wheels on the Mag Race Trainer. The best set-up for minimal noise would be achieved by changing your rear tire with an inexpensive skinny and smooth tire.

What about 29ers?

Since the axle is at a height of about 15 inches, 29-inch wheel bikes, in theory, could work on. However, some users have tried attaching a 29er bike to the product, and found that there are more safety risks in doing so.
