  1. I am totally new at this. I was wondering if the trainer could work for a mountain bike tire? All the videos I've seen have smooth street bike tires. 

  2. What do you mean by "leaking"? I'm looking to purchase a trainer on craigslist — I'm looking for quiet but concerned about the leaking you talked about with fluid trainers.

  3. I'm looking to get one that works on non quick release wheel. so far I haven't found any. do you have any recommendation?

  4. Is there a bike trainer that doesn't require a special skewer? I have a Road Master (I think) 12 speed that the local bike shop says can't hold a skewer. It is bolted in rather than the quick release axle. The bike shop says I would have to buy a whole new wheel for this, and that the trainer would have to be attached to my bicycle permanently. All said and done, this would require me to spend nearly $250. The bicycle itself didn't cost that much.
    Your help would be appreciated, as I currently take medication that affects my balance, and I would like to be able to do this. Thank you.

  5. Thank you for this video. I would like to acquire a trainer but I don't know what to choose between kinetic kurt fluid and tacx vortex smart 2016 ( electromagnetic). All the technical characteristic + the level of noise are important. So if you could tell me what would you recommend I would so very much appreciate. Thank you very much!

  6. Hi thanks for the info.
    I do have concern about simulating real road cycling. isn't it the opposite if what the trainer manufacturers designed their trainers to increase difficulty as the rider pedals faster? Isn't it supposed to be the other way around if what we are really aiming is to mimic the real road biking scenario?
    If you know such a trainer coupled with virtual capabilities I think I will definetely give it a try.

  7. do you mind sending me the fluid trainer now because it out of date and newer models have been released. I can provide my address separatly
