Product Review: Kinetic Road Machine trainer

We don't usually copy and paste the spec sheet from a product when making posts to this site, but lets face it, a stationary trainer is a technical piece of equipment (do you really care what colour it is?), so here are the spec's of one of our favourites, the Kinetic Road Machine - in stock now, just in time for this crappy weather:

-6.25 lb. flywheel for realistic coast-down
-PowerTap calibrated resistance unit
-Sealed fluid chamber with magnetically coupled driveshaft
-Thermodynamically neutral silicone resistance fluid -15-second coast-down from 20 mph
-Consistent resistance at multiple temperatures
-80 cooling fins to dissipate heat
-Lowest operating temperature of any fluid trainer
-Smooth, quiet resistance from 5-3,000+ watts
-Guaranteed not to leak
-2 1/8” roller reduces tire wear
