    Comments about CYCLEOPS Fluid2 Bike Trainer:

    This product worked great... for about a week. I'm still using it, but have had to get used to the sound and vibration.

    I decided to spend the extra money and get the highly recommended CYCLEOPS Fluid2 Bicycle Trainer, rather than a magnetic resistance trainer. I thought, for the extra money, I would also get quiet and smooth training sessions. This was the case for about a week.

    The vibrations kick in a certain speeds once the fluid container portion of the trainer reaches a specific resonance. The noise from the vibration makes watching TV or conversing with others in the room hard. I have tried several ways to eliminate the vibration/sound with little luck.

    I'm considering exchanging this product, and so far have been disappointed.

      Comments about CYCLEOPS Fluid2 Bike Trainer:

      Purchased this 3 months ago and have ridden it nearly every day since. This trainer is smooth and quiet. I have my "rain" bike mounted on it. After about 700 "miles" of riding I have no complaints. I have not experienced any of the noise or vibration mentioned by the other reviewer(I suspect it is a bike/wheel/tire issue not a trainer issue). Assembly was easy resulting in a solid base for my bike and workouts. These types of trainers are not meant for standing while riding, if you want that look into the Kurt Kinetic Rock and Roll. Resistance is very adjustable (shifting gears on the bike) and it gives and excellent workout. I have no problem hearing any tv programs I'm watching while riding but I prefer to use training DVD's. I did mount a "trainer" tire to save my expensive road tire. The power curve shown on the CycleOps web site indicates a curve that is supposed to closely resemble actual road riding. I don't accurate that is but I am OK with the results. The resistance won't be enough to simulate a cat 1 or 2 climb but it has no problem burning my legs out if I care to "hammer" it. I was able to start this spring outdoor riding as strong or stronger than I was when the snows finally came and drove me indoors.

      Comments about CYCLEOPS Fluid2 Bike Trainer:

      I use this in my living room which is very flat and level. When the bike is mounted in the trainer and you step back and look at it, the bike leans to the right slightly(about 3/4 of an inch) it still works, but is kinda awkward.

        I had a little bit of trouble putting it together, but now that I have it up and going, I LOVE IT! I decided to purchase this when the spinners at my gym started to go downhill and I am so glad that I did. I get a great workout parked in front of my own TV.
