The Schwinn Magnetic Bike Trainer is a key component to any rider’s off-season bike riding. While it’s more enjoyable to get outdoors for a ride, this trainer helps you stay in shape even when the weather turns and the days get shorter and darker. With five different levels of resistance, you’ll be well trained and prepared for any kind of ride.
This trainer features a broad, heavy-duty frame style that insures a comfortable, secure fit for your bike. The magnetic resistance provides a remarkably smooth ride to help mimic being out on the road while producing very little noise. From the beginner to the advanced cyclist, this trainer will have you riding in no time, making that bike in your garage a new piece of indoor exercise equipment.
The frame features an easy fold-down design for traveling. The trainer is very easy to assemble and it includes an extra skewer for your bike.
This Schwinn Magnetic Bike Trainer offers five levels of resistance for training and also folds for easy storage.

Initially I had a little difficulty getting the “L” bolt to thread inti the adjusting knob. Rather than risk cross-threading it, I tool…
Not bad, but not a 5 star product either. This unit appears to be the same as the “” and also the “”. At the moment the Outback is priced lower so the Outback represents a better value (minus one star for the Schwinn’s higher price). The other brands have better pictures so if you want a better look at the Schwinn check out the other…
Good for Quick Release, not for Nuts I bought this because I have a Schwinn and didn’t know that it would only work with a bike with a quick release on the rear. My Schwinn has a solid axle with nuts (the bike is older than me) and the dial that ‘locks’ the bike into place on the trainer does not really work with the 15mm nuts the bike has (which is what most bikes with nuts have). One review said that the trainer would work with the nuts because they’re the same size, so I tried it out and the bike was not locked in at all…
