Does anyone have any recomendations for an inexpensive indoor trainer? I already have a set of kreitler rollers but, I was looking for something that I could use without having to concentrate and that my wife could use easily. I am not ready for her to go through the roller learning curve yet. (we just mastered clipless pedals for her...)

Since I try to get outside as much as possible, I dont want to spend $300 bucks on one. Are the <$100 trainers worthy of consideration or will they be as loud and unstable as an ex-girlfriend?

it runs on rim resistance so no need to worry if slicks or nobby tires

I got a really good deal on a new CycleOps Fluid 2 on EBAY. It has a pretty accurate feel to it. I like it.

My wife got me a Nashbar fluid trainer that's working well, about 180 delivered I think.

Get a Kreitler fork stand for like $80.00. It's just like riding on a stationary rear wheel trainer. Obviously you can't adjust the resistance but I have one and it's rock solid and sturdy. I also have a Kreitler flywheel attached to the rollers which is a nice extra if you have the money.
minoura mag ergo, 2nd season, so far so good. <$100 (nm)JS Haiku Shop

I've had a Performance TravelTrac AF 500 for the past 2 years and have been very happy with it. It's on sale for $160 this week. They also make a TravelTrac HF 300 that doesn't have the ability to change the resistance on sale for $140.
