Nashbar Fluid Trainer
Bike trainers can get pretty elaborate and pretty pricey, but many cyclists just like to set it up and knock out a ride. Queue the Nashbar Fluid Trainer to experience the ultimate marriage of value, simplicity, and performance. Nashbar's new fluid resistance unit uses an internal flywheel system guaranteeing smooth, consistent delivery of a life-like pedal stroke. The bigger the gear and the more RPMs you generate, the harder the workout. Simple. Just as important, it's quiet enough that you can enjoy whatever media you prefer while training without having to jack up the decibels to overcome the trainer's noise. Plus, easy setup and teardown (with zero cords, cables, or power to worry about) makes it ideal not just for in-home workouts but bring it to a race, too, for the perfect means to get warmed-up and ready to rock.
  • Internal flywheel/fluid system provides excellent resistance and life-like pedal stroke
  • Super simple setup great for bringing along for race warm-ups, travelling, moving around the house
  • Rear quick release skewer included to ensure your bike attaches perfectly
  • Rubber feet on bottom of unit prevent slippage and floor scuffing

Fine trainer, TERRIBLE instructions

      Comments about Nashbar Fluid Trainer:

      This is less expensive than most other fluid trainers on the market. It's relatively smooth, once warmed up, a little noisy, but nothing that turning up the TV can't cure.

      But OMG, the assembly directions leave out SEVERAL really sort of important points and don't indicate or demonstrate several necessary operations. It's not brain surgery, but a thorough revision and better drawings would help a lot. It includes a worthless 5mm hex key but does not include the 16mm box wrench or socket you'll need to actually assemble it.

          Comments about Nashbar Fluid Trainer:

          Bought trainer while waiting for my Computrainer which is in storage with household belongings as part of a move. Lightweight and quick setup/breakdown are major pros. Less positive is the fact that the resistance increases, apparently, as the unit warms. This leads to a need to shift to a lower gear ratio to allow smooth pedaling. Still for the price this is a fine trainer that manages to give me a hard workout when the weather and schedule don't cooperate.

                Comments about Nashbar Fluid Trainer:

                I'm really happy with this purchase. My intention was to use it in my basement when the bad New England weather prevents me from going outside, hoping to get back into bike shape. It was a great workout and I was not sure if I would be able to get enough resistance but the adjustment in the back combined with my gears was a perfect combination. The instructions were pretty easy to follow, and I think it will be easy to take my bike on and off it so I can ride on the road whenever I want. Highly recommend!

                  Comments about Nashbar Fluid Trainer:

                  This is my first fluid trainer. I'm coming from a trainer that provided resistance via magnets. The workout this provides is far superior to my previous trainer. The stroke feels a little funny at times once the fluid heats up. However this doesn't affect the performance. Great to see that it was made in Italy. Setup time is quick and easy. Great buy when on sale

                  Great for rainy night to get time in the saddle when training for a ride. I leave it out all of the time so I am inclined to use it more. My wife and I ride two different trainers....The Nashbar Fluid seems to have a more even ride.

                    Exactly what I expected, fits all classic bikes with standard axles. Didn't fit my thru axle or disc brake bikes as they were too wide. But all other bikes fit perfectly. Smooth running, durable and steady. Can't be beat for the price.

                        Mostly plastic made but so far has worked fine. Have not taken bike off since putting on yet so can not speak to durability of plastic locking handle. Overall happy with product thus far.

                            I purchased this trainer for my wife. I needed something that was easy for her to operate when she wanted to ride indoors. If you're looking for a well build product without a lot of bells and whistles then this is a great choice.

                              I've only used this a few times no more than 45 mins. It takes about 5 mins for the fluid to warm up and get going. It's very similar to pacing on the road once you set it up. It's fast to get the bike on. It was great when doing intervals on it as well. Compatible with ZWIFT too.
