I initially got my CycleOps Fluid 2 trainer for home exercise using my current mountain bike. Swapped rear tire to a road tire for less spinning noise and switched out rear spindle. I now use the spindle and trainer with my bike for home rehab after knee surgery. I lost my original CycleOps spindle after forgetting to remove it from another bike I sold, and the inexpensive and easy to replace CycleOps spindle makes having a second dedicated rear wheel for spinning a breeze if your bike has non-road tires.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
Obviously this was never intended to be used on a bicycle with Breezer style dropouts. The lever attachemnet nut gets in the way. Come on Cycleops....your trainers are great. Why can't you supply a quick release built to the same standards?
