Cycleops Fluid2 Trainer July 17, 2007

Posted by farshadf in Buy this, Interesting.

So the Tour de France has you all fired up to go biking, but you just don’t want to miss the TV coverage. What to do? Bring your bike indoors and hook it up to the Cycleops Fluid2 Trainer. After replacing the rear wheel’s skewer with the one provided, you can quickly lock the rear wheel onto the treadmill spindle. The tyre spins a flywheel which is in turn damped by a liquid filled chamber, like a viscous-coupled car transmission, only in reverse.cycleops.jpg

The manufacturers, Saris Cycling Group, claim that the flywheel resistance setup gives a more road-like feel. We just like it because you get to train on your own bike, although for $330, plus another $20 for the Climbing Block to support the front wheel, you could pick up a cheap fixie and take a cruise, you know, outside.
