Keeping on rolling.

Maybe your downstairs neighbors frequently comment on the whirring and whooshing sound that comes from your condo every night. Or maybe the wind trainer is just getting boring. Either way, the CycleOps Training Rollers will bring the fun back to your winter training miles.

Unlike a traditional cycle trainer, where the rear wheel of your bike is fixed, on rollers, the bike glides freely across the width of the rollers. This ability to move laterally requires you to develop balance and core strength in order to keep the bike rolling in a straight line without slipping off of the drums. Additionally, rollers require that pedal stroke and pressure are bi-laterally consistent. Why is this important? Well, developing a smooth, round pedal stroke not only makes riding rollers easy, but it'll have you at the front of the pack come springtime.

The drums of the CycleOps rollers are constructed from precision lathed aluminum. A diameter of 3.25-inches allows for variance in resistance as you shift gears. Smooth and quiet, they won't distort in heat or sunlight. The rollers are secured to a stiff steel frame that conveniently folds up for easy storage in a closet or even under your bed. To adjust for varying wheelbase lengths, the front roller is easily moved fore and aft. A little tip: if your front hub sits directly (or very close) over the roller, the length of the rollers is properly dialed-in.

The resistance belt is adjustable for right or left side use depending on your dismount preference. If you find you need more resistance while riding the rollers (maybe you ride a compact gear in the off-season), the CycleOps rollers are available with a resistance unit. It's a simple magnetic bar that works within the magnetic field of the rolling aluminum rear drum. It features five settings to allow you to increase the difficulty of your workout without any additional noise.

The CycleOps Rollers are available in with or without a Resistance Unit.

Nice Rollers

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've owned a set of these rollers since about 2008 and they are still holding up. I've used them many times and i've never had to replace anything although i might need a new roller band soon. Overall im pretty satisfied.

Does the job, great workout

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My wife and I use one of these for quick accessible workouts.

Having to maintain tracking and form really adds to the workout and is a huge benefit over standard rear wheel trainers.

Its quick to layout and can be stored away easily.

The overall quality is less than I'd hoped but functions fine. No issues with stability or the issue mentioned below of the hinge falling out. Provided caps seem to do the trick. (If you lose a hinge cap, a rubber band wrapped tightly on the end would probably work fine, it just needs to keep the end from falling through the frame no weight should be born by retainer cap). I would think threaded ends with washers and lock nuts would make this over all seem a little better designed but there could be some reason for the push on cap design.

Still makes a good bit of noise, even more with resistance unit engaged, though for us we don't really need to engage it, just shift for resistance adjustment.

Good roller size for avid recreational riders. Seems to be endless resistance to be had within my normal gearing range without need to engage the resistance unit.

The Kreitler fork stand is a nice add, once in a while, if you want a thoughtless workout or to stand on pedals.

Since there's no variation in the roller you will feel your rides more in your "seat". It can lead to early fatigue since shifting contact points or standing off the saddle to relieve is challenging.

Rollers have held up just fine to our use and still do the job without any bearing issues.

It can be more difficult to do all out/HII workouts since it becomes much harder to maintain stability as you get to your limits, this could lead to falling or failure to maintain target intensity.

Is there too much of a difference between...

Is there too much of a difference between the PVC rollers and the Titanium rollers?

PVC rollers are cheap to make and fairly inexpensive, but I wore them out in half a season. After a couple months the plastic warped and it rode like the worst washboard road ever.

Go Alloy. It stays round, smooth, and consist for years. Its worth the little extra money. I upgraded to this specific pair and loved it.

These rollers have aluminum shell with ABS end.
They've held up well for me but admittedly I'm not on them every day.
If you're spending 30-40 minutes a couple times a week they'll do fine. If you're a serious racer then this probably isn't the right set of rollers for you.

rollin', rollin', rollin...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been riding rollers for years. They are my preferred method of indoor training. I should probably mention that I'm a track cyclist and track bikes do not fit standard trainers -- so it's not like I've ever had a choice.

That said, after I "retired" earlier this year I loaned my Kreitler rollers to a colleague to train through the PC winter. I then decided that "retiring" was a terrible (in so many more than one way) mistake so a friend gave me some cash to buy some. Unfortunately I initially bought 2.5" drums. And while the smaller drums provide great resistance for a geared bike, on my track bike, the chain is set so that the smallest gear I am able to use is an 86" gear. Needless to say, the 86" on 2.5" rollers didn't give me the cadence I'd need for the amazing comeback. So, I sent them back and opted to buy the CycleOps rollers with larger drums.

They are perfect! The only complaint I have is that the plastic plugs on the arms fall out easily and the "c-shaped" links for the arms come dis-connected almost every time I lift them. I have jury-rigged a nut to keep the arms from slipping off. I used a set of these back in LA and do not recall that being an issue so I am unsure if it is a new design or if that owner had also "fixed" the issue.
