I'm New... and not very smart... help.. lol
So ive seen things that hold up your back wheel on your bike and allow you to ride in place.....
but I dont know what they are called....
Welcome to Bike Forums. Maybe you're referring to a bicycle trainer?
Indeed.... what makes a good one? and where is a good place to get a cheap one? im trying to think about winter.
Trainers and cheap really are not words that go together. Performance bike sell and house brand and they have a $20 off $100 purchase coupon out. Also nashbar sell a house brand . These might be your best bet for price.
More biking, less flying.
Along this topic, has anyone seen a trainer that is just two large rollers, with no adjustable fricton wheel, no stand, per say, just a low profile platform with two rollers? I swear I saw the riders using one before the time trials in the Tour De France last year.
I have one. They're called "rollers" (surprise!). They're very good for developing your handling skills. You can hook up a resistance unit to the rollers to build your strength as well.
