Strength:

Smooth, Nice stand, should be trouble free

Weakness:

weak resistance above 20MPH

I purchased the Cyclone assuming it would be loud but be have realistic resistance. I found the resistance to be much less than actual wind resistance. I usualy average around 21-22 MPH on a flat time trial course. On the Cyclone I have been averaging 29 MPH. At this speed there is a high pitched whine that actually hurts my ears a little. It is smooth and a good workout - the speeds are just off. I would still recommend it if you dont care about the speed being the same. If you ride it above about 27 MPH you may want to wear ear plugs due to the high pitched whine.

El cheapo squirrel cage wind resistance unit purchsed about 30 years ago from Bike Nashbar. (The resistance on it is actually fairly close - within 2 MPH I would guess)
