    Trainer vs Rollers

    I bought a Mag 850 the other day. I just couldn't afford a fluid @ almost double the price @ the LBS...and it is quiet.

    Almost immediately I realized that I could adjust my handlebars and seat to a slightly better position. This made a big difference in riding posture, although I don't necessarily keep my hands on the bars while training, I can tell it'll make a big difference in the spring.

    Meaning, I live alone and it's sometimes diffecult to adjust things; or, remember how you'd like to make adjustments when you get home for a comfortable ride.

    This is the best investment I've made in awhile.

    And the Brooks should be broken in w/ a new rear tire comes spring

    What a crappy Subject! What I meant to say was that I really like the rollers but...the trainer has advantages meaning you can really fine tune the seat and bars for optimal comfort. Hope this straightens things out.

    Glad you straightened that out!....It's true though. I have a trainer and hardly need it cause it don't rain much here. But it is a great workstand and very nice when I need to make a fit adjustment.
