Voted the Best Budget Smart Trainer for 2019, the CycleOps M2 is a great choice for getting into virtual rides without the steep price tag. The power meter accuracy is 5%, which lags behind more expensive trainers, but 5% error was an impressive number just a few years ago. On top of that, the CycleOps M2 is lighter and can be stored more easily than most smart trainers. It integrates with Zwift, Rouvy, or any ANT+ FE-C and Bluetooth platform. The CycleOps M2 Smart Trainer can also operate all on its own for stealth training sessions. 1500W and 15% grade capabilities are great numbers when you consider adrenaline isn't exactly at it's peak in your bike cave before or after a long day at work. The noise level is a quiet 69 decibels at 20 mph., not the best, but also not bad.
Fits common road and mountain bike frames with included steel quick release skewer and has three settings for rear dropout spacing: 120mm, 130mm and 135mm. Optional thru-axle adapter available for 142x12mm and 148x12mm. Optional thru-axle adapter available for 142x12mm and 148x12mm bikes. An interesting option for those looking for a Smart Trainer and have resources earmarked for other endeavors... Majorca, that N+1 Bike, the list of things to put that extra £500 by going with the CycleOps M2 is significant and not to be taken lightly.
Here at PriceX, the older Tacx Neo is currently in rotation, mostly in part because we prefer the solitude and realistic nature of Tacx's Real Life Videos. Everyone is different, and if Zwift is your ambition, the CycleOps M2 is a great budget choice.
