Great for technique and balance

I have owned these for around eight years and chose them over static trainers because I thought they would be more interesting to ride. Rollers are not that difficult, if I can learn to ride them, anyone can. I started with the set up in an internal doorway placing one hand against the vertical and one on the handlebars. It took a couple of sessions before I was confident to get both hands on the bike, but it felt an achievement and soon it became second nature. I was keeping upright and all I needed was the back of a chair on one side to help start and finish my sessions. The longer the wheelbase of the bike, the easier it will be to learn to ride rollers. I began with a mountain bike and then moved on to a shorter wheelbase road bike. It’s important to make sure that tyres are up to pressure otherwise they will squeak and increase resistance. I don’t have extra resistance on the rollers, I find that the gear changes on the bike are all I need to vary the strength needed to keep going. Rollers are not really about building strength. They provide a core workout because you constantly need to adjust balance and they give you a much better technique. I noticed after the first winter of using rollers that out on the road, I sat squarer on the bike and my pedalling was more efficient. It’s like having a technique coaching session. If you get it wrong, you lose your balance, so you develop a way of staying upright and that translates into much better technique on real rides. The only thing that I would change is the rubber feet design. The feet split after time and I think that is because the square metal ends are forced into round rubber feet. Otherwise these should last a long time. Don’t be afraid, get some rollers!

Intrigued

This design seems like it would be both fun and a challenge. Although you probably get a better workout with the resistance type trainers, I believe enhancing one's balance and cadence will pay off in the long run.

Great Product.

These rollers have been used on average 3x/week for 18 years. The resistance unit is installed and is a nice upgrade. Warrantied and replaced two cylinders during that time due to bearing failure and replaced one band. Not bad. I guess its time for CycleOps to work on a Smart Roller.

Take you Indoor Riding up a Notch

Take your riding to the next level!! Rollers are not easy - no matter how many YouTube videos you watch... It takes practice and concentration. It's all worth it though. Smoother cadence, razor edge balance, awe and admiration from your training buddies (almost..)!! I've had an air trainer and a Fluid2 trainer, and this is by far the toughest indoor workout I've ever had. It took a couple weeks of trying and sitting against a wall to stay on, then another month to feel somewhat comfortable. After a season of riding indoors I'm still challenged and working at it - but I'm still riding it!! I've noticed an impressive smoothness in my riding, no side-to-side movement, smoother pedaling, The rollers are as quiet if not quieter than my Fluid trainer. Lighter and easier to take to LBS for training rides.

Amazing Rollers!

These rollers have provided miles and miles of enjoyment and most of all, exercise. The best part of these is they don't take up much room. Allowing me to leave them set up. I can throw the bike on for a workout in an instant and ride. The rollers test your core strength to the max! Be careful the first time, but once you pick it up, and you will, it's easy and fun! I went from never riding rollers to being able to transition to no hands on rollers in about 5 rides.
