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

cyclops Fluid2 making a squeaky noise....any ideas?

I bought the trainer off of a friend a year ago and this morning I noticed it is making a squeaking noise

I wasn't in the bike but was just moving the fly wheel with my hand and could hear a faint noise

the person I bought it from used to work at a local lbs and said if there were issues he'd get it looked at for me.

not sure if this is something I should be too worried about ??

Something could be rubbing. I had a similar thing happen with one. A spacer fixed it.

Noise from the resistance unit often meant impeller failure. That was on the old models, don't know if that still happens.
