    Cycle Trainiers, any recommendations?

    Looking at getting a trainer since its going to snow soon and I work retail so with the holidays upon us I can't get to the gym nearly as much as I like to use the bikes or weights. I was looking at this cheap trainer as something to get me by until the weather gets nice again.
    Amazon.com: RAD Cycle Bike Trainer Portable Indoor Bicycle Exerciser Machine Magnetic Work Out Cycle: Sports & Outdoors

    Any other recommendations?

    for $75 it's probably not horrible. "list price of $229" seems incredibly high for such a thing though. so yeah, i'd look for a higher quality one used locally if you can find one, but again, it's only $75.

    I searched "indoor trainer" and got this... http://forums.mtbr.com/search.php?searchid=11593364. Lots of info there. I use the Computrainer. Its very expensive but I use it all winter because its not boring to use. It lets me ride the same routes (simulates elevation changes and air drag as well as displays hills and curves) I ride during the summer and see if I'm getting faster or not.

    I spent a lot more on my bike than on the Computrainer but I end up putting close to the same mileage on both which makes the cost worth it to me since it keeps me interested.

    +1 I picked up a used model that was a couple years old for $100 on craiglist. Only ridden it about 10 times, but no complaints so far. It gets solid reviews, worth checking out.
