FORCE Fluid Indoor Trainer | Thoughts?

Hey Guys
This trainer is on spesh on T7:

Does anyone have any experience with this or how it compares to the more expensive and popular Cycleops Fluid 2?


Certainly can't fault the unit so far. Never really used any others but on our roadies it works well. Runs quietly & smoothly and ramps up well when you pile on the power.

I've got a Cyclops that I'm not using anymore. It's in good condition. You could have it for $150, but I'd be happy for you to try b4 you buy to see if it works for you. I got to train for a race after a shoulder injury (5 broken bones and sub-located clavicle) when my shoulder was too sorer to ride. Used it a lot then and it was really good, but I didn't have the discipline to keep using it. It's at my work in Newtown. Pick up today (Friday 26th) or tomorrow would be OK.

Thanks Tim. Have DM'd you

Hi Tim, I am in the same boat, seeing the T7 and keen to buy a fluid trainer to over come broken arm. If Phil has not taken you up on your offer i am really keen to buy. I'm in Glebe. Let me know either way. All the Best - Mic

Mic, Phil has taken the offer. All the best with your recovery.

Thanks, ouch, damned letter s, ouch
