What trainer?

        I have wanted a direct-drive trainer for a few years--in fact I had an article about one hanging in my shop to remind me that "someday..." But I had heard that another popular brand was extremely noisy, so I never pulled the trigger. I had already had a Fluid2 and other variable resistant trainers but felt I could never fine a "sweet spot": shifting up created more resistance than I wanted, etc. So I saw and read up on the Silencer and the only negative review I read seemed bitter. So I thought I'd give it a shot. I love it. I do like the mag-resistance so I can dial into what I feel is a road-like feel and shift through the gears and have that fine-adjust ability to exactly what I want/need for a given workout. The only wish that I have for it is an ability to record output data like some of the pricier trainers or have some kind of interface to pre-program a workout. Someday. Here's the best part: I often go upstairs after a workout and ask my wife, "Did you hear the trainer?" And her response is usually, "What trainer?"

        Stable, smooth, expensive but worth it.

              Bought this last winter and was good timing with all the snow and ice we had. Smoother than I thought it would be. Quieter than most. Very stable do to the weight and base width.
