I tried the rollers before I returned from being on loan. Now I know why they suggest being in the door frame. My right elbow is bruised and I some how cut the right knee as well. The frame came apart so I was fighting that as well. Did not know it until I stopped for good and took the bike off. That explains why the bike was at 150 degrees versus being 180 degrees. I wonder if I would have had more success if I would have realized the problem sooner. Boy you can not day dream and you need to remain focused and pedaling constantly. I was on the rollers for good half hour or more. I was sweating like a pig so I think I'll have to set up a fan on me as well to keep me some what cooled
Would I still get them .... you bet I think it would really improve my cycling skills, pedal balance and efficiency.
Any other suggestions? I was using PVC drums and I think they 4.5 inches in diameter. Which is harder to ride on rollers big diameter or small diameter? These were the flat rollers and not the parabolic rollers. IMO I think the parabolic rollers would be cheating and defeating the purpose of balancing?
