Tried to search, but with only a few letters and numbers, I didn't have any success.

I want to know if the 1up trainer is silent. 1up trainer is on top of my list for now.
I think I'll buy it as my next trainer, but if it's noisy, I might go to something else.


Any inputs, 1up owners ?

Louis :)

pretty darn quiet compared to most other trainers i have used. a conti trainer tire helps keep it that way.

With the amount of time we need to spend on the trainer in Canada, I personally do not believe that there is a better choice (it is supposed to be +4 and snowing this weekend). The 1up is very quiet and the resistance is very stable.

i had the same experience with the original silver resistance unit. it got jerky, and 1up shipped me the new black one, and it has been perfect for the last two seasons.

used it with trainerroad.com and sufferfest videos, and it worked like a champ.

Thanks for the reviews guys.

Louis :)

P.S. Now, Geoff, I think it's time you get rid of one of your SRM BB30 systems. And ship it to me...:)
