I know this topic has been beat to death, but which trainer should I choose and why? I've been looking at the Cyclops fluid trainer. I want/need a trainer I can beat-up on, get out of the saddle, pound-on hard, etc.

Which one would you buy and WHY?

Also, should I buy now, or wait till winter? Will I get a better deal now the summer? Where should I buy it when I'm ready?

Thanks!!!

Probably not the answer you are looking for, but have you considered getting rollers? its a more realistic feel to riding on road. they took me some time to get used to but i prefer them now to my trainer- mostly because after 20 minutes on my cycleops trainer i feel weak, on my rollers i can spin for a few hours like i would on the road and be really comfortable
