    I'm looking for a bike trainer for a person over 300 lbs. Apparently the Cyclops Fluid 2 is good for 300 lbs, but some of the reviews I've read are negative. Any recommendations are appreciated.

    Call them to see if there is a weight limit. I doubt it though. They are made to abuse.

    Alternatively, these will kill you before you kill them.

    The fan and fork stand option turns them into a heavy-duty trainer. Not cheap, but they are bombproof.

    Kurt goes to 300 on the stationary trainers, 250 on the R & R. Kurt builds a well regarded product. As does Cyclops. I believe both of them and Blackburn offer lifetime warranties. Drill it, kill it and get a free replacement?
