The Satori is top-quality stuff.

I wouldn't buy it from PBK though - the shipping is going to be outrageous.

You can also check Craigslist for a used one. It's almost comical how many indoor trainers get dumped on there with hardly any use. I bought a near new CycleOps Fluid2 for like $100 before.

+1

I bought a cycle ops for $75. Then a KK for $25! Both hardly used.

I recently acquired this one:

But with the adjustment option. So far so good, no complaints here.

Similar, but there are better and worse.

The Bay Area Craig's list has a bunch for sale if you go to the 'bikes' section and type 'trainers'. 1Up is very good. Kurt Kinetic is very good. Cyclops is very good.

Just grab one, you can't go too wrong if you get one of the better brands.

I've got one of the performance ones. It saw well over 150 hours of use this winter. It's probably 12 years old now and I haven't had any trouble with it.

bicycle doctors, who regularly advertise on roadbikereview classifieds, sells KK for a good price. I have the road pro and really like it
