Need good moderately priced magnetic trainer

Years ago, the answer was most always Nashbar. That one is gone, apparently.
What you would suggest, $200-250?

I was wrong, months ago I looked at the Nashbar website, and the plain jane
magnetic trainer was gone. But it's back now, And at 150ish, the price is right.
If no one has a better idea, I guess that's the way to go.

I'd actually suggest going for the fluid trainer.

+1. If you're planning on using this very much, it might well be worth it to buy something nicer: Robot Check Not much more than your original price range. I've been really happy with my Kurt Kinetic Road Machine.

EDIT: I'm not sure why my link says "robot check", as it's a link to the Road Machine on Amazon.

Yep. Go with the fluid trainers late.

That's what I meant. This is for my nephew, he was here, and
I didn't take the care I usually do. My bad.

This is what I had in mind... a fluid for $160+ ship. Used to be the trainer we suggested for people
on a budget.


Nashbar Fluid Trainer - Trainers

They also have the Ascent trainer on sale for $150, it gets good reviews.

Performance has the Travel Trac Comp Trainer for $140.
