The trainer I've used most is a Minoura Mag trainer, and have found it to be fine. It's relatively quiet, and I haven't found the need for the remote adjustment, as the bike's gears provide enough resistance, without having to change the setting of the trainer on the go. If you combine this with the Computrainer program, either the Nintendo type, or with a computer, the whole exercise is greatly enhanced. Boredom isn't a factor when you can see a pacer ahead of you, even a virtual one.
