Winter training - Rolers/Headwind or Fluid Trainer?
Hi, all -
Ok, late winter training, but I need some input: I have a set of old (circa-1985, egad) Kreitler Challenger rollers. I'm trying to decide between adding the headwind "Killer KOOL" attachment to get some resistance out of them, or an entry-level (read: similarly-priced) fluid trainer (likely, aack, Nashbar's). I like riding the rollers, and am nursing a torn medial meniscus, but want to work on strengthening for the Spring.
Suggestions? Pros and cons? Opinions from those with either/both?
