    test riding rollers?

    I have a stationary trainer that ive been using but want to try rollers. How does one go about riding rollers with out actually buying them? I dont see them in any lbs around here and i wouldnt think they would want the risk of someone falling on their face in the shop.

    How do you go about testing these to see if you like them before you buy?
