I ride the trainer a lot, like half my hours annually. I've raced every season for over 30 years and I started using a trainer the second year I raced. I'll do up to 5.5 hour rides on the trainer and many/most of my trainer rides in the last 10 or so years are 90-120 minutes long. Part of what makes for a pleasant trainer ride is solid support for the front tire/wheel. This block is my favorite, and I've tried a few. It's really solid and strong (a different block I tried collapsed), it's wide enough not to rock or move, and even on some exercise mats (my trainer/block sit on exercise mats) it makes the bike feel like it's anchored to the floor.
I don't use the climbing feature so I typically have the tire in the lowest / level tire well.

    Couldn't be happier with this gift I recived. Within a few minutes had it out of the box and attached to my Trek road bike. Runs smoothly and consistently, just a slight difference between cycling in the outdoors.

      Comments about CycleOps Climbing Riser Block:

      Back in dinosaur days, I leveled my bike on the training stand with a 2x4. It worked, but there weren't any options. Today, Cycleop's climbing block has plenty of competition, but it stands alone in stability. It's the perfect match to my Fluid2 trainer.

                Comments about CycleOps Climbing Riser Block:

                If you own a trainer (it doesn't matter the brand...) you need a riser block. This is one of those invaluable pieces of equipment that will help to make your training rides more comfortable, plus it'll make the front end of your bike more stable, as this pretty firmly keeps the front wheel from twisting during hard efforts.

                I've been using mine for about a year and love being able to select the climbing angle / using the same block as my wife (650 wheels). But, the design acts as a sweat collector and you end up with a puddle in the middle.

                  Q:

                  I've got young people riding on the trainer after watching their daddy. Will this work stacked for kids bikes? Our 9 year old on her 24" bike has been riding too I think we used 2 of the boards for her.

                  My 4 year old on a micro BMX bike is currently on and off and the front wheel is up on 3 - 1 x 6 boards stacked... the back wheel is just free not on the roller. But I want something more stable!
