I have a set of Travel Trac Technique PRO Alloy Rollers (http://www.performancebike.com/bikes/Product_10052_10551_1028745_-1___) and I want to figure out the rolling resistance on these rollers so that can I calculate the power output as a function of speed. Since there's no air resistance or any other resistance then it should be pretty accurate. I got the equations available but how do I figure out the rolling resistance of the rollers?
You should probably ask in the Training forum.
Here in Winter Cycling, we're all about riding bikes *outdoors* in the winter.
See the snow in the background of my avatar? Don't need no stinkin' rollers... ;)
EDIT: Oh, and watts? I make enough to work up a sweat well down into the teens.
