An indoor trainer, that is. I live in a condo complex with some really nasty neighbors, so a quiet version is required. Even riding in my garage, I'm worried about noise issues. Is there anything out there that's really, really quiet? Also, I've heard that there are trainer-specific tires that are quieter. Any truth to this?

Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions. I'm a schoolteacher and with summer approaching (and, some spare time) I'm really looking for the next few months to get back into riding.

Yes, but in my VERY small garage, a trainer would fit better, and be safer - I've tried rollers before and not done well. I've considered that Kirk Kinetic trainer with the side to side motion, but I don't know if its quiet enough.

I can only speak for my trainer which is just a basic mag unit, but the noisy part is changing gears. Its really not that loud that I'd expect complaints from neighbors, especially if you watch tv or listen to music and they don't complain about that.

Get yourself an upper body and beat the crap out of them.

Otherwise I would recommend you revisit rollers and learn how to ride them properly. A mat of some sort under the rollers or a trainer may help with the noise too.

Why are your neighbors so nasty? If I were you I would deal with that issue first. You have no obligation to tiptoe around to meet their needs. Find something reasonable and if they can't deal with it, too bad. Not as if you are blasting Black Sabbath tunes at 4 in the morning or anything.
