I set up a new KK road machine tonight. Really would like some input. Should I see black tire lines on the roller? I am assuming its from the heat. If it matters, the road bike tires are brand new.
Do I have to use the tension dial in conjunction with the gears to get the feel of a high gear? For example, when I use little tension and rely on shifting gears its not enough to stand. Finally, I realize this is not the technical term, but I get sort of a pedal slap, even when the tension is tighter and I am on the most difficult gear. It's like having it on a lower gear and going to fast and hearing that slap with each rotation on a real ride. I hope that makes sense. I am new to this, so I dont have all of the right lingo. Thanks
