Description

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.

Nobody loves riding inside

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

But this trainer will at least make it easy. Its easy to set up and will go forever. Other more expensive trainers have bells and whistles, but this one does the essential task well. 4 stars because the set up instructions kind of suck,

Never let me down

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

For having to ride inside from time to time, I can't complain about this trainer. I was upgrading from an old one and this quieter and smoother.

Years and miles that add up

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been using this trainer for the past few years and every time I pull it out and get ready for winter riding, it has never let me down.
I have used plenty of trainers over the years from Tacx, Elite, Wahoo and Kinetic and they all have a purpose. I will discuss the Cycleops here, but if you do have questions on other trainers, please reach out to me.
As stated, every time I pull this out of storage it is ready to go, even if I am not ready for spinning indoors. I always find it helpful to watch something on t.v whether it is sports related, a movie or on some other platform. I find that this trainer as compared to others is best used while seated and spinning. While the fluid will create added resistance when pushing a larger gear out of the saddle, it just doesn't feel right. For this reason, I love using this trainer when I plan on doing higher cadence intervals while seated, or low cadence out of the saddle. This doesn't have the heaviest flywheel out there for fluid trainers, but the fins do add a little more resistance to the ride. Downside is that the fins also create a bit more noise while riding. This could be a problem if riding with neighbors below as the reverb will be passed along to them (something to keep in mind).
All things considered this is a great trainer that will meet the needs of the majority of us looking to keep conditioned throughout winter, or the ability to jump on for an hour out of the day, when riding outside ins't an option.
Please reach out with any questions you may have about this trainer or others.

solid choice for a simple device that won't let you down!

Great Trainer

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased this trainer to replace the one that I was forced to leave at my parents house after I moved out. It's one of the best trainers I've owned, very quite and super easy to setup/use. I use it in my living room on those days where its time for bed but you aren't tired yet and my roommates have yet to complain. It's also easy to fold up and store out of the way when not in use.

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

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

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.
