Does anyone happen to have any experience with this trainer? Is this a good buy at $119 (regularly sells for 199)?

Thank you.

If you're talking about the adjustable fluid trainer, I've had one for 3 years, and haven't had any problems. On the lowest setting, it's one gear harder than riding on the road. If you're used to a mag trainer that you can spin away at 22 mph, your ego will take a hit. A friend of mine, who is only 140 pounds, returned his because he had a hard time going 16 mph. His ego couldn't take it.
On the highest setting, you can work on your all out sprints at 800 to 1000 watts.
Good trainer, good buy. nmOldEdScott
