Conquer indoor bike trainer review
This is Conquers top of the range bike trainer stand, still an entry-level exercise stand aimed at the beginner cyclist and those of us wanting to lose weight. While it is “only” an entry-level stand is has many more and better features than the Conquer indoor bike trainer basic model. See my review of this indoor bike exercise stand here.
This stand has many new features not yet seen on stands at this level, I’ll go over them for you while also pointing out any negatives I find as I go along.
If you are looking to just buy the conquer bike stand and not read my review head over to Amazon for the best price, quick delivery time and the superb service.

How does these features make this a better bike trainer
The strong, heavy-duty and well-made steel frame is the same as the one used in the basic model but it has more or better peripherals bolted on to make this stand a better and more pleasing exercise stand to train upon.
This reassuringly stable frame is only able to support bikes with wheel sizes of 26”,27” or a 700c tire.
Quick release mounting bolt
There is a new large easy to use quick release mounting bolt added to the frame. Once you have your bike setup and mounted it is a very simple matter of flipping the quick release to remove your bike from the frame and the next time you want to exercise it’s a matter of seconds to refit your bike back into the stand.
Moving on to the very quiet but not silent resistor, this is a big step up from many basic cheap bike trainer stands. Often glossed over on more expensive resistor units is the addition of a small flywheel. This adds inertia to the resistance you experience while riding your bike on the stand, giving you a much more realistic resistance similar to what you would feel if you were riding your bike on the road.
The second addition to the conquer indoor bike trainer is an adjustable magnetic resistor unit, not only that but the adjuster fits (somewhat fiddly) to your handlebars, unlike cheaper models that may have only one fixed resistance or the adjuster is located under your rear wheel. An adjuster enables you to make your exercise workout as easy or hard as you want it to be. Also for variation some people like to mix it up, easy for one song and then hard for the next. Or in my case you can follow a workout exercise routine.
This bike exercise frame has rubberized feet which resist slipping adding to the stability of your frame but they can also be twisted to level the stand if you have an uneven floor. This reduces wobble and vibration as you exercise at high-speed.
My conclusion of the Conquer indoor bike trainer
While its price may seem high compared to other bike trainer stands this fully featured stand is actually well priced (you get what you pay for). The features listed above will make the Conquer indoor bike trainer an easier and more pleasing exercise machine to ride upon.
