<p>Hi Kicksters!  <span><img alt="hello.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/hello.gif" style="width:25px;height:29px;"></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am hoping for a bit of help.  With Rev3 in my sights, I am looking at trainers to help get me through the Cincinnati winter.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Any suggestions on brands, features, etc?  I am not looking to break the bank but want a quality trainer. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Any help would be greatly appreciated!  <span><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;"></span></p>

<p>Don't know how big your bank is but... if you can afford a Computrainer, it's worth every cent. ~$1500 though.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Go for a fluid trainer, if possible.</p>
<p>Mag trainer, if not.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Or if you're hard core, consider rollers but I've not gone there yet...</p>

<p>I'll second the Computrainer recommendation. It is pricey but it has really helped me. Santa left me one under the tree a few years ago.</p>

<p>Thanks for the input!  I will start by looking for a fluid trainer. </p>

<p>A Computrainer, huh?  If anyone has Santa's ear, tell him I will give him a pole dance he will never forget if he leaves one under my tree...<span><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;"></span></p>

<p>I think Santa requires all requests to have an introductory video posted to Youtube and a link here... yeah, pretty sure that is in the 2010 regulation amendments. Them's the rules...  <span><img alt="evil5.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/evil5.gif" style="width:24px;height:23px;"></span><br><br>

<p>cyclops or kurt for a fluid trainer are great options, the tacx flow is a decent lower priced ergo, the cyclops power beam is a mid priced ergo.  Computrainer is nice but lots of cords and needs a dedicated place to stay set up, looks like a middle school kids locker.  ps, i lived in columbus, people in Ohio can and do cycle outside all winter, might want to also consider investing in a set of winter clothes and fenders</p>
