CycleOps takes its top-selling trainer in the USA and adds a dual-band ANT+ and Bluetooth sensor so you can reap the benefits of virtual training through various apps with the Fluid 2 Trainer with Sensor. Unfortunately, that gives you one less excuse to stray from that training regime once daylight savings time hits and the weather goes south. Its fluid resistance unit is quiet (64-68 decibels at 20mph) and offers a progressive power curve for an accurate, real-world road feel. With that going for it and the ability to compete against other cyclists on virtual courses online via training apps and its included sensor means you'll actually have fun and get results this winter in the relative comfort of your pain cave. If you can swing it, we'd always recommend a fluid trainer over a magnetic one. Rather than using a giant magnet to slow down the freewheel, the unit is encased in hydraulic fluid. Unlike a magnetic unit, where the resistance's variability is controlled with a remote, a fluid trainer's resistance reacts to your pedaling force to increase and as such, feels more realistic. CycleOps uses its Power Band technology that makes the level of resistance function with the rollers speed taking your gearing and cadence into the equation. This gives you a range of anywhere from 20 to 725 watts, ideal for most any workout. The Fluid 2's precision-balanced flywheel doubles as a fan so no matter how many watts you produce the resistance is stable and the unit stays cool. The Fluid 2's two-inch roller means you'll have a smoother ride with less tire wear. It features a wide, stable base adding security on any surface, and asymmetrical leveling feet ensure you'll always be balanced. The rear wheel mounts easily and a simple bolt-action lever tightens the resistance unit around the skewer. You won't have to readjust your bike every time you put it on the trainer. Sprint, jump out of the saddle, and time trial without the worry that you'll pull the rear wheel out of t...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
