Minoura B-seriesThe B-series models offer a good quality trainer without any frills. They have a sturdy stable frame, decent resistance levels, reasonably quiet and great value for money.Positioning of the B60 modelThe B60 model was launched in 2011, especially for the price competitive markets around the world.The frame is a slightly simplified U-shape frame compared to the M70 series, to reduce cost, while the Magnetic resistance unit is very similar to the very successful M70 model.The B60 model is available in either Remote Control or Dial (non-remote) versions.The Magnetic Resistance UnitThere are 2 versions available, Remote Control and Dial Control.The Dial version (non-remote) offers a nice & simple 3 level resistance, via the manual Dial lever on the unit.On the remote version (B60-R) there are 7 levels, adjustable via the remote control shifter, which fits onto the handlebar.Even though the number of levels is different for both units ( 3 versus 7), the overall resistance is exactly the same, it is just that the steps are larger and on the Dial model you will use the gears of the bike more.Both models also feature an accurately spin-balanced 700 gram flywheel, to assist the roller to retain a smooth rotation at all times.New U-shape FrameThe B60's frame design looks very similar to the M-series frame. It uses 38mm steel tubing for the U-shape, which is durable enough to supply 100% support, for riders up to 120 kg in weight. The U-shape is supported by 29mm legs, which fold slightly outwards for a very stable platform. They also fold flat for best possible storage.The paint finish of the frame is a rustproof powder coat paint, versus the multi-layer wet-paint for all other models.
