When you say wind trainer I think of the magetic trainers they sell at my LBS, the ones that the road bike mount onto. I think anytime you are on your bike you get a better feeling being in the proper posistioning for your actual bike. If your goal is to lose weight this probably does not matter but when you are racing or just riding then it makes a big difference. You are in a more upright posistion on a stationarry bike also which is better for your back.
I feel I get a better cardio aroibic workout on a trainer too... more like what I am doing on the road or in a race... and am much more motivated.
Just your average club rider... :)
