Product Details

CycleOps Fluid2 Trainer

CycleOps' Fluid2 Trainer utilizes Power Band technology to allow for distinct resistance changes without reaching to a lever on the unit. The large flywheel delivers a smooth, realistic road feel while sturdy legs provide a stable platform for pumping out hard, 600-watt efforts and out-of-the-saddle climbs. A favorite among serious racers, the Fluid2 is easily transportable and stands up to repeated punishment by the burliest of legs for years of impressive performance.

          I bought the Fluid trainer to keep up during winter and rain days and found this to be better than anything else I have tried. The resistance feels as though you are riding outside. It is simply awesome.

                I bought this a couple of month ago, used it and could not believe how quiet it was compared to the other trainers I have used.

                      I've owned this trainer for 2 years. I leave near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and use it it during the winter months. Fairly easy to setup from road to trainer. The hardest part is replacing the skewer that is required to use the trainer. So if you plan on switching from trainer to road it would take some time. Very little noise. Adjustment for resistance is easy. Smooth reactions at different gear settings. I have a 1984 Schwinn Tempo so it can be used on older bikes. I'm 54 and use bike and trainer for fitness.

                            I've been using the trainer for about two weeks and love it. Installation was a snap and the ride is smooth and quiet. Have used only one bike so far, but it looks like setting up for various sized bike is easy. The only thing I'm not sure about is the resistance (not a complaint, just a comment). Getting to 20 mph seems somewhat easier on the trainer than it does on the road. Also the power readings I get from Virtual Training (great program) are quite a bit higher than on my PowerCal meter. I realize the PowerCal is not the same as a conventional power meter, but the readings I get on the road seem realistic. Still give the Fluid Trainer a 5-star thumbs up.

                                  I bought a Fluid 2 trainer sometime in 2005 and 2006 and it is still going. The resistance unit had a problem in 2013 and CycleOps customer service was terrific: I also have a PowerTap and customer service used my power files to see the problem with the unit and eventually replace it. My unit is somewhat heavy, but perhaps the newer models are lighter.

                                        I have had my trainer for a little under a year, and I love it. It is smooth and the tension is very easy to adjust. It can get a little hot, but that is when I ride it for over an hour. The heat has caused my vittoria to get eaten up, but then again those tires were probably TOO soft for trainer use. Also, my first trainer developed a slight uneven rock The tension can be hard or easy depending on the type of workout you want. It is also easily portable to use to warm up before a race. I am not sure how often the portion your wheel sits on is supposed to be changed, but that part did wear a little quicker than I thought it should. Other than that, I am pleased

                                              I've had this training for two years now -- still works like a dream. Simple, but gets the job done. Well worth it to keep you in shape during the cold and snowy winter months.

                                                    I could tell you how well-built this turbo is, I could tell you how easy and quick it is to assemble or I could tell you how well it performs and how impressively quite it is, but what I will tell you is - you won't regret it!!

                                                          I bought this trainer to replace an 20 year old mag roller, after reading many reviews. I should of bought it years ago. The fluid 2 is much quieter and gives me more of a road feel and a lot better work out. I made a fork mount for the roller and I use it with the fluid 2, and it is so stable that I can do a very hard out of saddle sprint. The fluid 2 is easy to set up and use.

                                                                I received my CycleOps several years ago to continue my road bike training during the winter months. I use it every winter for three to four months, and it helps me to stay fit when the roads are too icy and the weather just to cold to ride outside.
