Hey outdoorplayr. Love my CycleOps Fluid 2. Excellent resistance and a very realistic road feel. Very stable and sturdy; I use mine probably 4 days a week now that the weather's so unpredictable. Plus, I like going for products that have a lifetime warranty; overall quality is excellent. Now if it only had virtual reality to simulate a mountain road...

I've got the cyclops magneto, progressive resistance magnetic. I like it, very good build quality, and it works well, too, though I'm still trying to fine-tune adjustments so that it doesn't burn up the tire quite so much.
