I picked up an Ascent trainer. I got a closeout deal on it from Nashbar. I didn't really check them out that closely but this one looks to be well made. I'm sure the Minoura will be fine. The one I got is much nicer than my old fan model, the bearings are nice and smooth, its quiet so I can read while I spin, and it looks to be well built. Does your trainer come with a block for your front wheel? If not you'll need a block of wood or something to keep your weight back.
