Still the Standard!

Many trainers have come and gone since the Fluid 2 was introduced. The Fluid 2 still stands as the benchmark all trainers are measured against. Smooth, reliable operation. Sturdy, yet portable. It hits on every point.

Excellent Trainer

Wanted a trainer to rehab after knee surgery and then stay in the saddle in the winter months. One absolute requirement - since it was going to be in the house (and we have no basement) it had to be quiet. Complete success. Wanted to buy a cheaper model but the noise difference is significant and my wife is completely satisfied on that end. The fluid 2 is simple to set up (even for me) and replicates a smooth cycling workout. It's up to you to vary the workout - shift gears, interval train - to get the most out of it. And my timing was great, if you want to call it that, given the impossibility of getting the bike out on the road for what seems like forever here in Massachusetts. I've used it more than I'd expected and am getting some good work in.

Great trainer

I don't have a ton of experience with different kinds of trainers but I have been very happy with the Fluid 2. It's smooth and easy to ride. Connecting and disconnecting the bike is simple. It is also quiet enough for me.

Excellent trainer with a great road feel

I have had a Cycleops mag trainer for 10 years and just purchased the fluid trainer. I was amazed at the difference in road feel and the progressive increase in resistance as the cadence increases. More than enough resistance for high powered sprints and likewise, just right for zone 1 recovery. As a cycling and triathlon coach, I would recommend this product to all of my athletes.

Aptly named... Fluid for a Fluid ride.

When we were in the market for a new trainer we wanted something that was smooth, not jerky like our older Mag trainers were. The Fluid 2 Trainer gives you an amazing ride, smooth like you're on that one section of road that you love to just crank it up a notch and go hard. Unlike the older, cheaper mag trainers, this is well worth the investment if you are looking for something to keep the wheels moving through the harsh winter months.

Feels incredibly real-smooth-relatively quiet. In short, love it

Love this trainer. Only one ding from me, and that's that with my particular road bike the width adjustment on the axel mechanism is maxxed out and so lends a little wobble, but that also forces me to pay more attention to my form to minimize movement side to side

Great trainer, great warranty, super customer service.

I've used the Fluid 2 since it came out years ago. The resistance unit developed a leak after a couple of years and Cycleops replaced it for free (although I did have to send the defective one back on my nickel). They sent the latest and greatest unit as a replacement and its worked fine for several years of hard use. Recently I wore out the lever that locks the bike's axel in place. One phone call and I had a new one via UPS in 2 days, no charge. Its a great tool for staying in shape in the off season and you can depend on the manufacturer to keep you on it no matter what.

This is meeting my needs nicely.

My new CycleopsFluid 2 Trainer is parked in my living room for winter riding. The bike is also sitting on a climbing block. I am a novice road bike rider, so have never used a similar tool. I use a stool to hop on and off I go! (not)! It seemed easy enough to set up. The only thing I had not considered is the fact I cannot coast. So, I am doing a shorter ride than I thought I would, but am getting a teriffic cardio work-out. I am enjoying it more than I thought I would!

bought the same model 10 years ago, loved it so bought another for my wife. super product

I purchased a Cycleops fluid trainer over ten years ago and it still works perfect. So to replace my wires' old Nashbar fan trainer I bought a second Cycleops for her. She said it gives better road surface resistance, and is extremely quiet.

We recommend this indoor trainer to anyone.

Very nice unit, worth the price!

We have one of these and also a Blackburn Fluid trainer. This one is quieter and easier to set up once the initial setup is completed. I like the feel of this one better also, it's very smooth and it coasts more like a bike on the road. I wish the price were lower, but there's no better trainer at this price and I'd buy another if I needed one.

100% Satisfied

I bought two of these about a year ago, and was 100% satified. Smooth, relatively quiet, easy to setup, and solid. For me, the feel was about as realistic as it can get on a trainer. Last winter they received about 80 hours of usage... no leaks. They still look and feel like new.

This is an excellent product!

I am more of a causal cyclist and use this trainer to do hour long rides with various speed and resistance intervals. I have found that this product has far exceeded my expectations. The fluid resistance gives a very realistic ride and can apply ample resistance. The frame is very sturdy and easy to take bike on and off. I am very happy with this product.

Great product, easy to set-up and very secure.

Let's be honest - training indoors can be dull! The fluid 2 eliminates most of the excuses about training indoors. The unit is easy to set-up, the platform is very secure and the ride feels pretty smooth. I have average about three to four nights a week on the Fluid 2 trainer and I'm very happy with the product.

Great Trainer, very lifelike.

I have been training on the Cycleops Fluid 2 for two years now, and had no issues. It ride very realistic to the road, and is nice and quiet. Make sure that you get the rear tire centered, or you can get some vibration and more noise. I ride this trainer 3-4 timesweek (50-60 miles). Get this you won't be disappointed. They're costly, but worth ever penny.
