Familiarity: I've used it several times

Although I've ridden various forms of trainers, (CycleOps, Wahoo Kickr, etc.), I've never ridden rollers. I wanted progressive resistance for various reasons such as matching a more realistic power band curve as the speed increased. I also have a hub-based power meter on a tubular rear wheel, so being able to ride the bike with that wheel appealed to me as well.

The rollers are high-quality. I've ridden them 5 times within the last several weeks and I'm more impressed each time. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm actually looking forward to riding in the basement this coming winter due to having these rollers!

Now I have to work on getting started on the rollers without having to have something to lean on for the first couple of pedal strokes. LOL!

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was able to rent a brand new Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon 29 S Complete this summer while visiting my brother near Winterpark Colorado. Being from the flat Midwest, I wanted the best bike I could obtain to make up for my lack of skills, especially on steep and rough descents. Climbing on this bike was not a problem, even considering my lack of altitude acclimation. In spite of my general MTB experience and with no knowledge of the trail, the bike kept me out of trouble and was a blast to ride. I can't tell you how many people out the trail complemented me about the bike. It got me thinking about buying this model, even for riding back home in the Midwest.
