Noise Level: Nonexistent. Leg Scream: Probable.

Neighbors banging on walls. Kids crying over monitors. Glares from your roommate. No one likes a noisy trainer. 

That's where the Silencer comes in. It's perfect for the cycling enthusiast with a need for a lean, mean, quiet training machine. A handlebar shifter makes it easy to turn any casual ride into a heart-pumping, leg-screaming, Classics-worthy effort without sacrificing the ultra-responsive resistance offered by the direct-drive design. So lose your rear wheel and get ready to experience a new decibel in training.

          Yes, it sure will, you'll just want to be sure you use a riser for your front wheel or you will be riding downhill.

      • Silencer with Cassette

        Q:

        Virtual Training app says this is "Compatible, but requires the
        use of a power meter." What is this? Is there a list of compatible power meters and a better explanation of what's required? Is the "CycleOps Powertap SL 2.4 Speed/Cadence Sensor" a power meter that works for this?

          Sorry, no it is not possible. But check out our Hammer direct drive trainer that will accept thru-axles.

        Q:

        Will the Silencer work on a bike with disc brakes? I have had a Lemond Revolution for a couple of years and just discovered that it won't work with my new Tarmac disc brake bike as the caliper interferes with installation of the trainer.

        Q:

        Is it possible to get speed on your garmin? Is there an adaptor or device you can attach in order to calculate this without a rear wheel?

          Well i did it easily. If you have sensor array with a separate cadance and speed unit like the mio one mount it on the right hand chain stay. Mount magnets on the crank and on the spinning drive disk and adjust the sensors for distance. Wont work with either of the Garmin sensor designs. You can get split sensors on ebay quite cheaply.

          Not easily, the silencer was not designed for use with a speed sensor.

        Q:

        I am getting one of these (cyleops 9801) and have a question I am sure has been asked before. Most training today is done with the use of power meters with watts, or heart rate monitors and cadence sensors. The variable of speed has been thrown to the way side. However, it can still have some value and input on training. The direct drive trainers take out the rear wheel and since the magnet on the rear wheel spoke is what is usually used to assess speed; there is no way to determine the speed...or is there???

          A:

          There is no way to detect speed on the Silencer. You are correct that power is a great way to train and a pedal or crank based powermeter would work fine with this.
