Cyclists of the world. Trainers or rollers? I wanna buy something to pedal indoors but i can’t decide what do get. Overall, i feel bored riding indoors. I have had trainers and it gets boring really fast. Rollers sound exciting but it could take a while to get used to it.

Adam Spelbring says:

Rochelle’s balance is incredible. Sure, she probably has years and years of experience, but still. Very impressive.

Stefan Tudor says:

That is the most dangerous and stupidest invention in cycling ever..

Jim says:

Hi GCN,
cut the felt pads with a thickness of about 1mm and place them under bearings – would be quieter.. 🙂

Brava ! Good job ! Many thanks

KingTesticus says:

i’ve suffered thru a few other “rollers tips” and yours are the best.  to the point, concise, perfect.  information and not all this blah blah blah about opinions and what other athletes think and feel…. you should see some of the other “trainers” out there claiming to be whatever they are.  anyway, good video, added to favorites and Thumbs Up 🙂

lee gill says:

Can you use normal tyres on rollers

Nicole Lewis says:

Rochelle, I’ve been using my rollers now about a month – 4 sessions of an hour each. You tips have been invaluable! I have two questions: 1) how do I reach and drink from my water bottle? I am able to get the bottle, then lose my balance when I try to drink!
2) how do I practice to be able to go hands-free like you?
BTW – love the accent 😀

Freakschwimmer says:

Looks like she is having way to much oil in that chain….

Matthew Oneill says:

is it possible to get on and off the bike with nothing on the sides

Aaron Pepelis says:

THANK YOU!!! This was awesome and helped me so much.

Unbreastfed69 says:

Why shuld you use rollers at all? For the price of rollers you can get winter cloths and ride your bike anywhere any time, oustide. I cant understand why people do this.

Niklas Andreassen says:

What happens if you smash your front brake?

Dr Chunky Biscuit says:

How do you warm down? Impossible! You warm UP & cool down!!!

Noneofyourbusiness says:

if you are riding on the heaviest gear what does it feel like? os it like riding a climb, descent or just flat?

Nagy György Krisztián Nagy says:
