These are my first set of rollers, ever. Once you hop on these and go to town, you will quickly realize how sloppy of a bicycler you are. Love these rollers. I'm not sure I could make it through the off season without these.
If anyone was wondering, this includes rollers and frame.
Pedal Stroke Fitness
By far the best set of rollers I have every sat on for hours at a time. I spend the winter putting in some solid base miles at steady state power on these babies. Rollers mimic real balanced conditions and keep your pedal stroke perfect in order to stay on them. If you have not spent time on rollers this is the pair you want. They are durable and will last for years to come. The only thing I have replaced on these is the power band and the rubber stand feet. These also fold in half allowing easy storage or the ability to pack them in the trunk so you can use them warming up for your next TT. The Machined aluminum roller drums are perfectly round and impossible to destroy. The telescopic rails allow you to switch the rollers to match your bike length, quickly and easily. Ride On.
What is the difference between the alloy...
What is the difference between the alloy and the challenger? Is there any difference in performance?

This is the single best product for trainers. It is simple, reliable, and will last for along time. Great resistance. Makes a better pedal stroke, and you have to actually try. unlike stationary trainers
I have had the new version for a year. I have had no issues. The set I had before was almost 20 years old and worked great! I love these and suggest the for warming up for any cycling event. I also train hours on them in the winter when it is just to cold out.

Will the Kreitler 3.0in complete roller set work with a recumbent trike (Catrike Villager)?

RealCyclist is real good Can't Post
I just wanted to share an experience I had with the people at realcyclist.com. For those of you who don't know, they are the same people that run bonktown, chainlove, huchnroll and I think Backcountry.com and backcountryoutlet.
I ordered a Kreitler flywheel from them. The box broke open in transit. The UPS driver leaned the box up against the door to protect the broken seal, so clearly had noticed it. The flywheel was a little scuffed (no big deal) but the drive belt was missing. I talked to UPS who sent a driver to examine the packaging. There wasn't anything to see because all it was just an open box - the problem was that the box was open when it came to me - so they "resolved" the complaint - meaning they closed it without doing anything.
I called realcyclist, spoke with Tayler who suggested that I send the flywheel back for replacement. I suggested that it might be easier just to order a new belt - I was fully prepared to pay for it. He said he would check their inventory and get back to me. A few hours later I had a voicemail that they didn't have any extra belts but that they would order one from Kreitler for me. Two days later, it showed up at my house, direct from Kreiter.
I'm impressed. That is pretty good service. Although I buy mostly from my LBS, I will probably order from them again.
