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

Want to set up in the basement to keep ped'lin over the cold months. Not sure what brands to look for (or stay away from). Any suggestions?

Cycleops fluid 2 is a good middle-of-the-road trainer from a company with great customer service.

The kinetic rock and roll is wonderful, used to have a cycle op but could not stand it, 45 minutes was max.ock and roll moves with the bike, much more realistic and you can cycle for a much longer time. In fact I use it during the summer if raining real hard

Get a Kurt Kinetic, great product, quiet, very realistic ride, and quieter than Cycleops Fluid 2.
