Good trainer suggestions.

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Good trainer suggestions.

Good trainer suggestions.

Looking to get a trainer for the long Michigan winter. I see they have a pretty wide range in price. Is there a particular one that stands out in the crowd?

I rock a CycleOps magneto. Progressive resistance. I like mine a lot. That said, if you have the funds, then go fluid.
