Product Description

The most road-like feel of any CycleOps trainer. In essence, it's a resistance unit encased in hydraulic fluid. Unlike the Mag's external variable resistance, on the Fluid 2 the harder you pedal, the hotter the fluid gets and the more resistance you experience. But there's more going on than just that: the Fluid 2 is designed with Power Band technology that makes the level of resistance also a function of cadence and gearing. The ranges of resistance you can potentially experience is unbelieveable -- it varies from 20 watts to 725 watts, all a function of your gearing and cadence. The Fluid 2 has a cooling mechanism built in to give tons of durability. And, like the Mag, the Fluid 2 easily folds up and comes with the Quick-Lock bike mount, a custom skewer, and a CTS climbing workout video sure to pain you greatly.

There is little noise and I am able to watch TV and listen to music while I'm riding.

It was very easy to assemble, it took about 5 minutes to figure out and put together.

It's silent except for the sound of your tire rolling over it, and completely stable. There's really no need to buy the next more expensive one. I haven't felt the need for a mat. And the resistance truly is road like except without the bumps and traffic lights. It's a constant effort though, so you will get more of a work out in 45 minutes on the trainer than you would in double that time riding on the road.

You will want to accessorize however for a few reasons:

First of all, riding a trainer is the most boring thing ever. At the very least you will want to be listening to music, and ideally you will want to set up a TV to watch while you're putting in your time getting nowhere fast.

If you don't have water bottles and cages on your bike, this is the time to get them, and also a good way to practice drinking from them while riding.

You will sweat buckets, and don't want to soak your bike and the floor with it because sweat is highly corrosive in addition to being stinky, so in addition to the roughly $300 you will pay for this trainer you might as well spring for the the "Bike Thong" which Amazon also sells (with Free Super Saver Shipping) for about $22 (cheaper than CycleOps sells it for, and they don't give you free shipping). The bike thong will protect your bike from all that corrosive sweat and it comes with a handy pocket organizer to hold your TV remote control, iPod, Clif Bars or whatever you might want handy. Trust me, attempting to cover your bike with a towel wont work nearly as well either for the bike or you as you try to keep it in place.

You should also get a fan to blow air on you as you ride your trainer.

Color Name: Fluid2 TrainerSize Name: One Size
Ok... So I have been looking for over 2 weeks and contemplating whether or not to get this trainer or a less expensive one. Well, I figured from the reviews from the cheaper ones that the MAG is not that resistant and WIND is way to loud. Plus I read several reviews of those models that parts break. So, this is why I picked this model... Great reviews, no defects, quiet and resistant. My take on it? Excellent product and worth the extra cash. I am nothing like a pro but I do take 2-3 rides a week for about 25-45 miles each time. While the cooling temperature, the high winds and the worst drivers in the world sometimes it's nice to play it safe and ride indoors. So the product: Easy to set-up (less than 5 minutes), very common sense to hook your bike to it, quiet, very sturdy, great resistance. Today was my first ride on the trainer and a great work out. I rode for over an hour and got my heart rate up to 174 and still had two gears left.

This Trainer is great. Relatively easy set up. Tremendous customer support when you call about anything that is unclear. The instructions are a bit weak for setting it up (hence the call to customer support). Once you get it set up it is wonderful. A truly tough workout, the free Chris Carmichael DVD helps you through your first workout and gives you ideas for setting up other workouts on your own. You need to get the riser block for the front wheel or it does not feel right. During my first 2 workouts on it I easily exceeded the Heart Rates I was getting in an organized Spinning Class. Feels rock solid.

I have experience with a cateye trainer and a Computrainer in addition to the CycleOps. I bought the CycleOps based on reviews here, and I'm not disappointed.

Pluses:
- Quiet
- Quick to setup
- Portable - folds to a small size
- Roller is not spring-loaded, so you can adjust the pressure on the tire to avoid slip and minimize wear

Minuses:
- Slightly unstable if not on completely level ground
- The flywheel loosened itself and started making a really loud high-pitched squealing
- Still doesn't quite have "road feel" - an even heavier flywheel would really help

As the title says, I'm very happy with the trainer - I've been using it for about a year now, with no major complaints.

The trainer does vary its resistance slightly as it warms up - for me, I usually notice the resistance getting harder at around three minutes into my workout and then another smaller step at around 6 minutes in.

I train with a Power measuring device (Quarq Cinqo), so I can tell you more quantitatively: When I first get on the trainer, 250 watts will be at about 92 rpm in a given gear. At around 3 minutes into the workout, the rpm for 250 watts reduces to around 82-83. At six minutes or so, this will be around 79-80. I believe this is due to a heat-sensitive thickening agent in the fluid in the trainer's resistance unit.

If you spend a lot of time at really low efforts, the fluid may cool again and you may find that the resistance reduces. To me, this is not a big problem, as I just adjust the gear appropriately to generate the resistance I want and the cadence (speed of pedalling) that I want.

Some general advice for using trainers:
