Cycle-Ops Wind Trainer for indoor bicycle riding?

Anybody every used a Cycle-Ops wind bicycle resistance trainer?

How does it compare to the Blackburn wind trainers of the 90s?

Still as loud?

I'm looking at one used for $60 and wondering if it's worth buying or if I should hold out for a mag trainer.

ALL wind trainers are noisy ... that's how they provide resistance (think about how loud the floor fan gets as the speed increases!).

For a quieter session, go for magnetic or fluid resistance versions.

Personally, the noise from the wind unit is too distracting for me after about 15 minutes ... so I use a Cycle-Ops fluid trainer with power meter myself.
