Trainers
« on: August 08, 2010, 05:00:28 PM »
Hey all -- With a new (our first) baby in the house, I suspect my riding time will be limited for a while. I'm thinking of buying a fluid trainer so that I can hop on it with a minimum of planning and even if I'm a little sleep deprived. I suspect I'll be bored, but even if it's just once a week, that better than nothing. With that in mind, can anyone recommend a fluid trainer?

Rockhopper, CycleOps fluid trainers are one of the best. I have one that i bought 6 months ago for $300 and was thinking about selling it. I also have two training video's. Give me a call if you might be interested. 863-602-7019.
I would sell it for $200. I have used it a handful of times.
Here is a link to the one that I have.

The cycleOps ad Kurt Kinetic are probably the best two brands available ;)

Thanks. After some further research, I went with the Kurt Kinetic.
