Howdy Retro, Stabby, everyone,
Just today I had a friend who is getting into road cycling email me a link to those rollers asking me whether or not it was a good buy.
Admittedly, I know hardly anything about rollers, except that I've only ever seen trackies use this type, and roadies use the other type (the type with x2 triangular frames to support the rear wheel).
What should I tell him?
Tom

with the wrong tools, you'll have to give me a minute ... and a new right shoulder ... and a new upper spine ...

Super bargain!

Are you using your usual road tire on your trainer or a trainer specific tire?

I don't think tyres make a difference in the noise level.

Trainers are inherently noisy because they have some sort of resistance unit. Wind trainers sound like 747s taking off, magnetic are a bit better, and fluid are quite reasonable (i.e. I can actually hear the TV when going all out on my fluid trainer!).

Rollers (well, most rollers) don't have a resistance unit so the only noise is bearing noise and tyre noise, which isn't really that loud in comparison.
The ideal number of bikes is one... I just can't decide which one.
