Turbo trainer

Hello everyone

Firstly my apologies if this is in the wrong section

I am looking to buy a turbo trainer to improve my fitness and lose weight over the winter months. I have had a good look around and have come up with 3 possibilities all within my price range.

1. CycleOps Fluid 2
2. Blackburn Tech Fluid
3. CycleOps Magneto

So witch one should I buy?


Thanks in advance
Rob

At this price range you should also be looking at the Kurt Kinetic road machine. Get it at Performance bike with the 15% discount.

road machine: http://www.performancebike.com/bikes..._1081178_-1___

Discount: enter code 735 at checkout.


Just noticed you are in Ireland. Might as well go for the Fluid 2 then.
