I have been looking at purchasing a trainer lately as the days get over the century mark here. I have a limited budget and have been looking at two trainers so far. They are the Nashbar Fluid Trainer $149.95 and the Ascent Fluid Trainer $119.99. I would like to know if anyone has had any experience with these units or if you could recomend a better unit for around the $150 mark but will go up to $200 if need be. I would like to get a kurts unit as I have heard good reviews about them but unfortunantly I am unable to afford it at this time. Thank you for your time.
