couchathletewrote a review of CycleOps JetFluid Pro Trainer on December 13, 2016
There hasn't been a review for this in years on here. Also, description of BC is out-dated. I don't think there are 4 resistance curves and quick-lock cam lever.
Decided to get a trainer for winter training/overall exercise during the winter in SLC versus a cold weather kit (add up to be the same price). This is my initial impression of the unit, which is the basis for keeping the trainer or not.
Unboxed, the unit is 99% ready to use. Unfold the legs, switch the skewers and mount the bike. The trainer spins nicely and very stable on old-rickety 1920s original wood floor without a mat. The resistance is just wonderful, smooth with no lag, but I won't call it 'road like feel'. Noise generated while spinning will wake a sleeping baby in the same room, a combination of the resistance unit's whirring and bike gears. I'm putting this in the basement to minimize noise for the duplex neighbor, but the trainer is stable enough to be use in upper level of newer apartments where the flooring is well insulated. Once done, it folds up nicely for under-bed storage.
Also, use an old tire on the trainer to save your nice tire for the pavement.
PS: It's a keeper, pending weird chucking noise as indicated by some users on Youtube.
