Training & Nutrition - Rollers or Trainer?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Which of the two (rollers or trainer) will allow for a better cardio workout?
With your choice I'd also appreciate if you had any specific inexpensive model in mind.

Either one will give you a good cardio workout depending upon YOU. Rollers are better for me, because I have to worry about balance and keeping focused on riding. On the trainer it is very, very boring for me.
Inexpensive is a relative term in the bicycle community. I used craigslist and got my rollers for $50.00 and have used them for two winters and planning on a third. I have about 3000 miles on the rollers since I have owned them.
Have fun with whichever you chose.
Thanks for the reply!
For cheap I mean best sub $125 price tag. I live in Jeyzee where rollers are NONE in my area.
Any sub $125 rollers you'd recommend?

I don't know enough about rollers to give you a good or bad brand. Nashbar has some for your price range.
