Hi, this is Jeff with the Two Wheeler Dealer. Today I'm going to talk to you about how to buy a bike trainer. There's three main types of indoor trainers on the market right now. Being a wind trainer, a magnetic trainer and a fluid trainer. The wind trainer which I have demonstrated here, basically uses the resistance of the wind to create the resistance against your riding. Basically it kind of gives you a very linear sense of resistance. Once you get it ramped past a certain speed it's not going to keep giving you a higher resistance. The nice thing about the mag trainer is that it does have varying degrees of resistance that you can adjust. Which basically adjusts the magnets closer together to give you varying degrees of resistance. And with the fluid trainer, basically has a turbine and a fluid liquid. That as you pedal harder, the more force that you put into it, the more resistance that it's going to give back. Which basically with that, you'll just shift into a harder gear on your bike and it'll give you harder resistance. It's going to give you the most lifelike feel to riding on the road. But just sitting in the house riding in front of your TV. Wind trainers start at about $100.00. The mag trainers are about, about $180. And the fluid trainers start about $280 to $300. And this is how you by an indoor cycling trainer.
