The Kinetic Road Machine Indoor Bicycle Trainer
Perfect for sprints, intervals, and all-day cruising, the Kinetic Road Machine offers smooth, quiet resistance for indoor training. Like every Kinetic Trainer, the Road Machine operates with a 100% leak-proof, patented magnetic drive system. The power calibration gives you true outdoor simulation while the automatic resistance adjusts as you change speeds.
Real Road Feel with an Automatically Adjusting WorkloadWhen the rear wheel spins on a fluid trainer, an impeller rotates through liquid to create resistance and the resistance automatically increases with speed. The result is a smoother, quieter, more road-like experience. This is critical for any indoor cyclist--the faster you pedal the harder the workload gets, just like an outdoor ride.
Large 6.25 Flywheel
The Road Trainers 6.25-pound flywheel results in a smooth, road-like ride without altering the force curve. The flywheel delivers a realistic 15-second coast-down from 20 miles per hour.
Extra Stable Platform
With the trapezoidal leg design, the Road Trainer offers largest footprint of any trainer to keep power and motion focused on the flywheel. Even during hard, out-of-the-saddle pedaling, the ride remains rock steady.
Measurable and Repeatable Workload
Unlike other fluid trainers that lose resistance when the fluid is heated up, Kinetic Fluid Trainers use thermodynamically neutral liquid silicon to ensure a consistent, measurable and repeatable workload at all temperatures.
Low Operating Temperature
According to the laws of physics, energy is never lost or gained, but simply changes form. In the case of a fluid trainer, the energy of the spinning impeller inside the fluid chamber is converted into heat. Kinetic Fluid Trainers have been designed with 80 cast aluminum cooling fins to dissipate heat and provide the lowest operating temperature of any trainer.
Works with Specialty Bikes
The Road Trainer is fully compatible with wheels measuring from 22 to 29 inches (outside diameter), including bikes with flip-off skewers, breezer drops-outs, and nutted axles on track and BMX styling. A small wheel adapter is required for 16 to 21-inch wheels (sold separately).
Kinetic offers a 100 percent leakproof performance with a patented magnetic drive system that uses neodymium magnets to link the drive system together. This eliminates the problems caused when a physical drive shaft has to enter the fluid chamber--which means no need for O rings or seals that will eventually wear out and leak.

I took the advice of others and put a cheap used tire on my bike. I was very glad I did this. In the short time I have ridden, I can already see the wear marks on the tire and anticipate having to replace it before next winter.
It took a long time to get the wheel adjusted to the point where it made the least amount of noise. There was a lot of squeaking! I found I had to inflate the tire to the maximum recommended PSI before the squeaking stopped. Though part of that could be the fact that it's a cheap used tire.
The tire still squeaks at very low speeds (<10mph), but once I am up and running, the noise in the room is a medium hum where you can still hold normal conversations with other people. You can also hear the normal noise of the bike chain running against the gears. I would call the overall noise minimal, but you would not want to train at 2AM if you are in an apartment. I have to turn the TV up a few notches to watch movies while I am riding and when I put headphones on, I cannot hear the trainer at all.
Overall, I am very happy with this trainer and expect a lot of good use from it.

The trainer is working out better than expected. I have over 600 miles on it now and its working great.Read more ›
I ordered this to replace an aging Minoura rim-drive style trainer. The Minoura was great from the standpoint of the rim drive, but the belt and other moving parts made it noisy (in my opinion) and the belt wore out pretty quick and was a PITA to replace. But overall it was a good trainer. I was hoping a fluid style trainer would be smoother and quieter.
After reading many reviews, I decided the Kurt Kinetic was the best option, and the additional flywheel would give the unit excellent feel. I knew the rear tire would take more abuse from this type of trainer, but I was willing to recycle some old tires to the task to get a quiet, smooth, road-like ride.
Unboxing, the product was perfect. The box opens fully, so you don't have that awkward issue of trying to figure out how to slide the Styrofoam out. I was pleased to find just a few simple parts inside. The assembly was a breeze - just mount the resistance unit with a single bolt, slide the spring onto the tension L-bolt, and screw on the adjustment knob. That's about it - takes all of three minutes to assemble and it's simple. On mine, I changed out the aluminum lug that holds the skewer on one side. Not sure why they don't do that by default, but it was simple as well.
The product itself is well built. The design is similar to many others with the folding legs. But the stance is a bit wider and the tubing larger in diameter. Also nice is how perfectly the skewer mounts fit onto the supplied skewer. You'll never worry about the bike slipping out of this unit.Read more ›
