Need advice from bike people, which trainer?
Dear Mr. or Mrs. Bike Person,
I'm looking for a trainer upon which to mount my mtn bike, and wanted to know what works; should I be looking for wind, magnetic or fluid resistance? Does anybody have one that interfaces with a computer to vary the resistance? Is a set of rollers worth the extra cash?

I used this one and was very happy with the results.
The rollers have a learning curve. If you really want one.. try before you buy.
Also dont forget to
1) Use a smooth back tire or you will hate life (front & back if you go with rollers)
2) Get a riser for the front wheel
3) Use Chris Carmichael's videos to help. (It was a HUGE help to me).
Hope this helps.

there is ABSOLUTELY no substitute. This is THE closest thing besides a giant treadmill (they make one of those too - for like 20k) to riding on the road.
Great company, real easy and fast to deal with, and the product is top notch, worth every cent.

ps - You know the learning curve someone spoke about on rollers..... well cut that by 75% when you use the E-motions. Idiot proof, ride no hands and pump out of the saddle. Bike ain't going anywhere unless you bunny hop it.
