I am gaining too much weight so far this winter, so I am considering a trainer. I do not road ride, so I am wondering what trainer do you all like the best for a mountain biker?

Funny you should ask...I just bought one about 3 hours ago!

I don't live very far from a performance bicycles shop so I just stopped in and bought one. They're pretty much all on sale right now so there are good deals to be had.

They actually have one trainer marked down wrong online (an extra $30 off) but they're honoring the listed price so if you want an extra deal, grab one before they fix it!

Travel Trak Century fluid plus reg $229 now $149

Tell us how you liked it. I have also been looking for a trainer to keep me more fit during the winter.

I use a rim drive trainer. My (spare bike) hardtail has v-brakes so this works great, avoids any issues with rolling on knobby tires and doubles as a bike stand. The biggest problem is what video content to watch during the hour long spin sessions.

A fluid trainer is the way to go, Kurt or CycleOps are both great choices. These both have well published power curves and will give you the best feel as you increase speed and power output. Just be sure to get an el-cheapo road tire and use it instead of the knobbie.
