On-the-road training in your living room.

CycleOps designed its Fluid 2 Trainer to give you one less excuse for not sticking with your riding routine when the cold weather strikes. The engineers behind this design know that part of what keeps us from riding indoors are those obnoxiously loud, unpredictable trainers that don’t quite give us that real-world road feel. Well, those days are behind us, as the new Fluid 2 Trainer is quiet, smooth, provides a consistent level of resistance, and is easy to set up. Now you're able to spin away in the comfort of your home this winter season with the silky-smooth Fluid 2.

First off, what makes a fluid trainer different from a magnetic trainer is the resistance unit. Rather than being a giant magnet, the unit is encased in hydraulic fluid. Unlike a magnetic unit, where the resistance is external and variable, a fluid trainer relies on pedal speed to increase resistance. Therefore, the harder you pedal the more resistance you experience. Additionally, CycleOps uses Power Band technology that makes the level of resistance also a function of gearing and cadence. This gives you a range from 20 watts to 725 watts, with a single trainer. The Fluid 2 has a cooling mechanism so that no matter how many watts you produce, you won't see billows of smoke.

The Fluid 2's two-inch roller means you'll have a smoother ride with less tire wear. It features a wide, stable base so that you'll feel secure on any surface, and asymmetrical leveling feet ensure you'll always be balanced. The rear wheel mounts easily and a simple cam-lever tightens the resistance unit around the skewer. You won't have to readjust your bike every time you put it on the trainer. Sprint, jump, and time trial without the worry that you'll pull the rear wheel out of the trainer.

The CycleOps Fluid 2 Trainer will accommodate tires from 26in to 29in with rear spacings of 120mm, 130mm, and 135mm.

Take that, Maine Winter!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So about New England. Have you ever checked the weather forecast, seen "23*, Wintry Mix to Sleet through the Afternoon" and thought, "Yep, today is a great day to play bikes inside?" Then look no further my friends: this trainer will help motivate and strengthen through the bitter end of that grey winter.

While your friends are posting sweet Insta's of their riding in shorts through the sunshine, you can raise their bet, showing off your sweet indoor training center, replete with your roommate's mom's Netflix Log-in and the latest season of House of Cards. Maybe they're racing, cruising through the bucolic North Carolina countryside, as you "warm" up for another round of Grants Tomb Crit in NY, hoping that maybe this year you'll be able to feel your fingers the whole time.

This trainer has seen me through 5 winters of why-do-I-live-here temps from Maine to Minnesota, and many many race warm-ups from the the very balmy feeling 65* Philly Phlyer to the 20* and raining (how, I do not know) UVM race of yore.

The trainer is smoooooooth and pretty quiet, perfect for dorm-room class-readings or apartment-living. Homies probably already hate the pre-race racket, no need to up the ante with trainer and roller cacophony. It's easy to get your bike set up, simply swap the rear skewer, throw a towel of the associated block under the front wheel and BAM, good to go.

Great trainer

This thing will definitely get me through the cold season. Super easy set up and gets the job done. It fits my different bikes with ease and takes up minimal space! Which is nice. It is loud, however. So not to great to use if youre trying to get some training and Netflix in at the same time.

Simple to use. Great workout

We recently moved from California where we could ride year around. Now in Utah, it's too cold for road biking but we still love getting on the bike, even for 30 minutes. We recently bought the trainer with leveling blocks and couldn't be happier. Easy to set up and get a work out in.
