Blackburn Tech Fluid Trainer

BikeRadar verdict

20.0 out of 5 stars

"Poor ride feel, especially at speed"

Saturday, October 1, 2011 12.00pm By

The only redeeming features of the Blackburn Tech Fluid trainer are that it’s easy to set up and relatively quiet. The ride is awful, though, and you won’t get much joy out of stomping away on this during winter.

Increase the pace and it gets worse – the fluid unit can’t seem to keep up with your accelerations or even riding steady at different effort levels. As for sprinting, don’t even think about it.
