I have the one that your back tire rests in a stand and is locked in. The front tire sits on a block. You can elevate the front somewhat by changing which "crease" you stand the bike tire in. I have seen the roller kind but have not tried. I know a few others who have tried and state that they are difficult to use. It takes practice. On mine I was to get on and go. No problem or practice needed.
I would advise that before paying anyone for anything go in to a store and try it out in there for free. Get an idea of what each feels like and then decide. Good luck! Happy shopping!

I have looked at trainers on eBay. Do you have the kind that holds the rear wheel and holds the bicycle upright or the kind where the bicycle rides on top of rollers and you must maintain your balance. Did you try each kind and if so what did you find the difference to be? Thanks.

Hi welcome! Something you may consider during bad weather days is to get your self a "Trainer". I got mine for about $150. You can find this at most bicycle shops. The stand attaches to your bike so that you can ride it indoors. Bike riding is more enjoyable outside but when it is crappy outside no need to miss a workout. Just a thought.

Moved to SC a few years ago. Need to burn off some South Carolina biscuits. Love to road bike (bicycle) but cold weather forces other activities. I hope for an occasional warm day here in SC to get out riding.
