I am trying to find out how loud the Nashbar Fluid Trainer is, as I don't know anyone who owns one. How loud is it, compared to other, similar trainers?

What would you consider loud? Using any trainer will be noisy. You are right, the fluid and magnetic trainers will be quieter than the wind resistance trainers. – Vincent Agnello Nov 23 '11 at 15:30
Left a clarification in the question. @runxc1, please revert my edit if I'm off-base here? – Neil Fein Nov 24 '11 at 17:45

I've never used one, but judging from what I've been able to find on Youtube, they are definitely quieter than the magnetic trainers I have at home.
