Any suggestions for quality rollers? Me thinks my tax return needs to supplement my health.

Kreitler is da bestest that I know of AFA rollers go. That Inside Ride thingy is prolly mo bettah, but its also mo money.

Me? I have a pair of ancient (bought em in the late 80s) Tackx plastic rollers that work just fine for my use. You don't HAVE to spend a shitpot load of $$ on em to get good ones.

That is a relief!

We don't have the mega shops like y'all do in NOVA which means that I will need to scrounge a little harder for them.

Get LARGE diameter rollers though not the small ones. I have the 2.5 gauge rollers and they're very difficult to spin unless you're in a high gear.



I wish I had the taller rollers but the cost doesn't make sense, since I really want these =

I own a $50.00 set of Minuora rollers. They were purchased because of an ad I placed on craigslist. I got 3 phone calls on the day I placed the ad, and the most expensive one was $75.00.

Place an ad and see what happens. I would bet there are a lot of them gathering dust.

Check CL DC and if you find something, I can always get it for you.

What's really skeery is I remember that cover.

Note also the difference in pedals. Looks and Times...

At least the stuff they were wearing wasn't PBS brand! :whew Descente is good stuff.

Getting this back on top.

For those of you not at Fried Quads, I did a metric century on my rollers yesterday. Not as bad as I thought, and my legs were not bad at all this morning, so I did a 60 minute elliptical workout.

How long did that take and what did you do to alleviate boredom? That is a lot of stationary time!
