Why face the elements when you can face the television?
You can ride a million miles without ever leaving your home when you use the Kreitler 4.5in Complete Roller Set. Machined aluminum drums roll quieter than a Rolls Royce in a storage unit, and precise balance provides the smoothest ride this side of the nearest asphalt.

I was very lucky to have some one pass...
I was very lucky to have some one pass onto me an old set of Kreitler 4.5in rollers. I noticed that on the set the orange belt (which needed to be replaced) is actually on the left side of the rolers. I down loaded a set of assembly and set-up instructions where it said that the belt should be on the right side. I also have a small wheel attachment just in front of the front back roller attaced to the left side of the frame and there seams to be an additional grove on the end of the roller to accept some other type of belt. Does anyone know what this is for?
There are a few optional attachments for Kreitler rollers that are belt driven. I believe you can get a resistance unit and/or fan.

What is the distance between the inside of the legs on Kreitler Fork Stand?
can you vary the resistance from where you...
can you vary the resistance from where you are seated? for instance, if i want to ride for one minute with little effort and then increase my effort by changing the resistance- can i do it from where i am seated without getting off the bike? if i can't with this model, are there other models that i can do this with? or perhaps i should buy a stationary bike that i can do this with?
Nope, these are not adjustable while you ride. However, if you are using a road bike you simply switch to a harder gear to increase the resistance. There's nothing to it really.

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.
Grabbed some of these a couple weeks ago. I love them. I will second everything said in the previous review. They took about 20 minutes to get used, but after that they are ace. Don't putz about with any other rollers, just get these.
Kreitler 4.5in Challenger Roller Set
These are my only venture to rollers and after reading various reviews online and doing some price shopping, it became apparent that these were really the only choice. There are no other brands of rollers that were rated as comparable to the Kreitler, some were touted as being "almost as good" or "good value for the price" although they are slightly more expensive than other brands, the quality is excellent and I expect they will last a lifetime! Thanks for a great product at a great price! RealCyclist.com has the best price and excellent service, my new rollers arrived in just 3 days!
Is this roller set the complete Kreitler...
Is this roller set the complete Kreitler 4.5 alloy drums and frame and everything that comes brand new out of the package? and is it true I can get this plus the resistence fan all for 571? And these are for brand new, never used equipment?
Yes. Complete, brand new.
Is this just for the 3 rollers, or is it...
Is this just for the 3 rollers, or is it for the 3 rollers and the frame? Thanks Dano
The frame and rollers come with all of the options listed above.
