What customers say about "Key Specs"
Kinetic Sports Road Machine 2.0 (T-2200) Fluid Trainer
  • Absolutely LOVE it. Wish I had purchased this trainer from the start! I had used a cheap fluid trainer starting in January (I had ballooned to 282lbs!) and I thought I was making good progress in getting healthy and back on the bike after a number of years off.
  • I can't even believe how well this kinetic trainer has worked out! It's saving me this winter for sure. I was between getting a gym membership or this trainer.
  • If you want to be able to ride your bike indoors, a trainer like this is perfect solution.
  • Overall, it's great. Compact, well-made, quiet and, being a fluid trainer, self-adjusting.
  • I have been using the fluid trainer now for a little over a month, about four times per week, 45 minutes at a time. Everything is working great with it.
CycleOps Fluid2 Indoor Trainer
  • I wanted a solid, well built machine that would provide a smooth road-like feel when pedaling and so I was willing to pay a bit more. This device does all of that and I'm very happy with it.
  • Great trainer and easy to setup. Took about 10 minutes from out of the box to ready to use. Smooth and road like feel.
  • This is a great trainer for some serious training. During the week it get hard to go out and do the miles.
  • Not only is the trainer great, the company is amazing!! Bought one of these about 4-5 years ago and use it at least 3 times a week for 45 minutes each time.
  • For many years I would ride wind resistance rollers in the winter but now I'm blind in one eye and have no depth perception so the rollers have become very difficult, not to mention riding outdoors. I decided to buy this trainer as a replacement.

What customers say about "Features"
Kinetic Sports Road Machine 2.0 (T-2200) Fluid Trainer
  • Some reviewers state this trainer is loud, others say quiet. Fact is the Kinetic Road Machine 2.0 is much quieter than previous trainers I've rode but it's not quiet.
  • I did not have to assemble the trainer in any way, but if you get one where the legs are unattached or something, I imagine it is a simple assembly.
  • I do have road tires that I think would be quieter, but haven't put them on yet. It is loud, probably a little bit quieter than a blender, but I use some noise canceling ear plugs to listen to music or watch Netflix.
  • As far as noise is concerned, I have hardwood floors and don't have a mat underneath the bike/trainer.
  • My only regret? Not being light enough to use the Rock N Roll trainer. Looks like it would have been a hoot!
CycleOps Fluid2 Indoor Trainer
  • Also very quiet at 76db around 80rpm. I had this trainer for a little over a week now and only put on a few miles because I still ride outdoors.
  • Obviously this doesn't come with whatever smart features, but I could do without those.
  • Once u connect bike there is noise from wind (wheel spinning) and from tire friction against device so advertising is not being truly honest about overall noise.
  • The only possible downfall would be that there is some noise associated with the bicycle's wheel's contact with the drive wheel. Very happy with purchase.
  • Mechanical things make noise and this one does also.
