I've cycled for years, but at age 54, had never bought or used a set of rollers as a serious option to fixed indoor trainers. However, this year I bought these rollers to broaden my experience and to improve my balance and pedal stroke. I chose this model because it has built-in, magnetic (i.e. silent - or nearly so)resistance.
It arrived promptly and fully assembled; two qualities I enjoy in a potentially complicated piece of equipment. Basically all I had to do was air up the tires on my bike, set the wheel base length, unfold the unit, and ride. After only a few minutes, I was up and rolling!
This unit is smooth, light weight, easily portable, and quiet. My only objection, and it's a very minor one, is that the resistance unit, which has 3 settings, has no off setting - where the unit will roll freely. However, the lowest setting is easy enough that anyone with even a few miles on their legs should have no problem with it, yet it provides a good workout for the beginner.
So far I have just over 12 hours on these rollers and look forward to many more.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
