    Q:

    I am planning to purchase this trainer, but concerned about compatibility with my bike. My bike (Giant Defy Advanced 2) has a rear wheel skewer that is through axel, but with a thread pitch of 1.5 mm. I noticed that your through axel adapter does not work with this thread pitch. Would other through axel adapters (e.g. Kinetic traxle, Robert Axel project) be compatible with the trainer? Which would your recommend?

      A:

      The Robert Axle would be your best bet for that thread pitch. Unfortunately its one thread pitch we don't currently create an adapter for.

    Q:

    Hi there
    I just got my Fluid2 last week. I then realized the rear wheel quick release (Deore XT) on my 27.5 mtb doesn't fit on the Fluid2.

    What can I do to use the trainer with my mtb?

    Q:

    Tonight my back tire blew out while on my trainer, is this common? I have been riding for over 2 months and have never had an issue since I purchased it 2 months ago. Why would this happen?
    Asked on 1/24/2017 by Alicia from Walnut Creek Ca

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Not necessarily common, but it could happen. Trainers generally create more friction than riding outdoors so if you are already starting on the trainer with a worn tire it could cause issues. You may want to consider using a trainer specific tire instead of your outdoor one.

    Does the fluid2 have built in power sensor or does that need to be purchased separately to work with Ant+

      No it does not, it's a mechanical trainer only. If you would like Power check out the CycleOps Magnus.

    Q:

    I have a Trek Fuel EX 8, 29'er with 29x2.3 knobby tires. Will this product work?
    Asked on 1/23/2017 by Sue from Phoenix, AZ

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Could be a tight fit. we generally say tires up to 2.25 work, but depending on the width of your rim or exact tire it could be close. However even if it does work those knobby tires are going to be quite loud when used, you may want to consider a trainer specific tire for use on the trainer.

    Q:

    I have an adaptive handbike which has an opposite configuration than a road bike. Meaning, it is front wheel drive which spins the flywheel in opposite direction. My wind trainer just does not catch air, but functions. My question is, will the Classic Fluid Trainer 2 work in the reverse flywheel mode?

      A:

      Imagine the wind trainers flywheel inside of the fluid trainer, that's kind of what it looks like. So like your wind trainer it'll work but may still not give you the resistance you are looking for, however it will be more than the wind. I would actually recommend a Magnetic trainer Mag+ or Magneto, these will be capable of creating the same resistance forward or backwards!
