I use a CycleOps 2 Fluid trainer, and it's pretty sweet. I do however, live in a small apt in LA, and I'm somewhat concerned about sound. If I ride hard, I generate a good amount of vibrational sound, but I think it's ok for my neighbors since it's consistent.
However, if I add a video/DVD on top, I have to turn it up to pretty loud to hear anything over the buzz. Do you folks have the same problem, and do you watch videos without sound?
(I was going to get Spinervals - was wondering how good it was on "mute")
