well, first ride with my college club wasn't too bad, but i really want to be up in the front so im going to get serious about training now.
A buddy in th group said rollers will really help my technique (i just started this past summer, but i've been a marathon runner, varsity soccer, cross country, and tennis player, so i have the athleticism down). I didn't really realize there was so much technique involved in cycling.
Anyways, my main question is, what should i look for when buying rollers? I am in college and have a limited budget, but i don't want anything crappy, just a solid setup.
I was thinking about getting these
ps- should i try my first ride without being clipped in? it looks damn hard, i can't even ride without my hands, i dont know if i could fathom riding rollers with no hands, I'll work my way up though
I want to be able to do this
but i don't want to look like that... just be able to do that on rollers. I see people playing wii and stuff on their rollers as well, i need to get goin on this whole thing so i can do that too
