Comments:

We've had this trainer about 3 weeks now, and I love it. My husband put it together, so I'm not sure about the lack of instructions like others have mentioned -- but he likely would've said something if it had been a huge issue. I really enjoy using this in the morning for my a.m. cardio, and plan to use it through the winter to keep my base fitness up (along with cross-training, of course!). Very quiet and smooth, feels stable even when out of the saddle. Only gave 4 stars simply because it'd be cool to have some sort of way to check mileage or RPMs. I may be wishing for options that are too high-tech for this price range though.

    Very realistic feel. Perfect indoor trainer for the 100 degree weather we have had in Houston lately. Took 40 minutes to assemble because of poor instructions. Everything else was positive. I did not even notice the noise really. Comes with a decent Race Simulation DVD.

        I've only owned this trainer for a week. It was easy to assemble, about 20 minutes. Assembly instructions could be better. It has quiet and smooth operation. Great for riding indoors when weather is cold in OH. Recommend front wheel block and rear wheel sensor computer for tracking speed and distance.

          This is easy to use and great excerise when the weather isn't cooperating. Nice not to have to adjust, do to it's "self" adjusting nature. Would be nice to have some kind of meter reading for KW or MPH.

            I have had my trainer for a couple of months and really enjoy it. It is stable but I always use a climbing block when I work out. I have no complaints about the noise.

            I have used a number of stationary trainers that use friction. This is the first fluid resistance trainer I have used and boy what a difference! Want a better workout? Kick it up a gear, need a warm up or cool down? This is perfect. This is the only trainer I have used that lets you control the resistance just by your ride. I actually had a friction trainer before this and when I mounted the (temporary, rubber mounted) control lever on my top tube it slightly damaged the paint on my 1994 Bianchi "Reparto Corse" frame. This is the only trainer you'll need to buy, skip all the others and go for the gold.

                I just started cycling this past summer and love it. However its not something I can really do in Michigan during the winter months so I bought this trainer. I'm really surprised how closely using this trainer feels like being on the road. My husband had it set up in a matter of minutes and I don't have anything to compare it to, but the noise it makes is not distracting. I'm definitely happy with this purchase [...]

                  I use this trainer mainly for indoor group rides. I previously owned a Performance fluid trainer, which was about 12 years old, when I replaced it with this unit. The difference between the two is not 12 years but light years. The larger diameter roller in combination with better fluid and power control really do make this trainer feel very road-like. At the same time it ramps up the power verrrry smoothly, and the noise level is very low, even when you "punch it". [$] is not cheap, but in this case it is true that "you get what you pay for".

                  Fluid 2 is my first trainer so i cannot compare to other, but one major thing that i have to say about it is that it is pretty close to road feel. This trainer is not that noisy and is really, really easy to setup.
