If you're going to use something like this a lot, invest in a trainer specific tire as well. Bike trainers will tear up road tires.

"Fits 700c (Road) or 26 in.(Mountain) wheels with different tire sizes."

That's the vast majority of adult bikes.

700c is the same rim diameter as 29". Whether it has only clearance for a small <30mm road tire or can fit a large mtb tire also I don't know, but if you wan't to use a mtb on this it would be a good idea to get a separate slick tire anyway. Knobbies get torn up quickly and are super loud on trainers like this.

So this only fits one specific wheel size according to the specs. They must make adjustable ones, not sure what the price jump is though.

No, not it's not

27-29 is the popular size in MTB.

26" is actually the most common size by today's standards.

While that is true, I don't think that most people who use a trainer would use it with a mountain bike. 700c road bikes are what the majority of people use with a trainer from my experience.

I actually have this trainer and it works well for me to use during the winter. Make not 100% necessary, but I'd advise getting a riser for your front tire as well to keep it level.

I never had issues, but as another person said, if you use this a lot you might want to get a specific tire just for this as it can wear down a regular road tire quite a bit

It's the most common owned one. The smaller wheel size is getting phased out for the 27-29.

I can guarantee you the 26" will never be phased out.

A neighbor threw out a similar unit a while back that looked to be in decent shape so I snagged it. Haven't yet gotten around to trying to use it as there's no lack of decent outdoors (i.e. real) cycling around here. It seems to be in operable shape, but hand-turning the resistance component, it seemed to spin freely without much resistance. I couldn't tell if it was fluid, magnetic or wind-based. Do these things tend to build up resistance with speed, so that initially they're easy to turn but as you increase wheel speed they offer more resistance? I injured my knee this winter so running is a challenge with all the pounding, and I'm not yet ready to risk riding on bumpy roads, but indoor cycling might be doable, so I'm hoping to test it out.

Actually, they're both being phased out for out of phase elliptical wheels.
