The Bad

We have found that most of the 'bad' reviews or issues that people have found with this particular turbo trainer revolve around the assembly instructions.

One frequent critic that the CycleOps Fluid 2 Trainer has, is the high price. We personally felt it was reasonable for what you got, though it is more expensive than more 'run of the mill' trainers. But this is not your run of the mill trainer.

CycleOps Fluid 2 Trainer User Reviews

We had a look for a few verified user reviews to give you an idea of the quality and the type of product the CycleOps turbo trainer is. 

"… And the resistance truly is road like except without the bumps and traffic lights. It’s a constant effort though, so you will get more of a work out in 45 minutes on the trainer than you would in double that time riding on the road. Love it."

John T

"This indoor trainer is excellent. I shopped around a lot, and this seems the best bang for the buck… my husband, serious biker, can then set his bike in and change resistance and get in a decent work out. It is quiet enough for me, and I do like quiet. My dishwasher is louder"
