    Which trainer?

    Should I get the

    Tacx Fortius
    Kurt Kinetics Rock and Roll
    E-motion rollers

    I like the interactive part of the Tacx. I think it would be nice to see what you are doing.

    The Kurt kinetics I like because it's not a stationary ride.

    The rollers because of the actual bike feel.

    If they could take the Kurt Kinetics Rock and Roll and hook it up to the Tacx software it would be pretty cool.

    What do you guys think I should get?
    Cannondale Supersix Hi-Mod

    I think the Kurt Kinetic Rock and Roll is the deal. I have the Road Machine and it's awesome so I would imagine the ROck and roll would just be that much better.

    My vote goes towards the Fortius. I'm on my second year with one and love it.

    They're hardly comparable in price. The Kurt Kinetics Rock and Roll is 1/2 the price of the Fortius. I too have a Road Machine and it's very impressive in quality. Plus (and this may or may not matter to you) it's made in America. American workers and all that...
