I bought a Cycleops trainer (don't know the model - I think it's a fluid trainer, not magnetic) from a co-worker who had had it sitting around for awhile in his garage.
I was using it yesterday and I kept smelling a strange odor- kind of burning rubber. I couldn't find an obvious cause- but I think it was coming from the metal hub-thing on the trainer.
Has anyone encountered this? Is there some maintenance I need to do on the trainer- oiling or lubing it?
Thanks for your help!
