|Affordable trainers around $100 - Performance vs. Minoura||BergMann|
Mar 4, 2003 12:29 PM
|I'm currently looking to get an indoor trainer and noticed Performance had the Minoura Magturbo Ergo 2 trainer and their own Traveler Century model for around $100.
Does anyone have any experience with either of these trainers, or another recommendation in this price range?
Is there anything I should look for in terms of resistance ratings, etc.?

|I purchased a used Century Traveller from a friend and have had good luck with it this year.It has 5 resistance settings and seems very smooth.I'm a Spin instructor and it's very comparable to the Spinning bike.
Performance has it on sale for $79.99 now.Good Luck.
