Tips on buying used rollers
I know little about the rollers, but i feel like i would enjoy them more than i would a stationary trainer. There are 2 on craigslist in my area, one a TACX ($75) and the other guy says the brand is unknown but it's a PVC roller ($50). I'm not doing any real training, just biking indoors for winter.
From what i looked up about TACX they seem like cheaper models, and I assume the PVC one is a cheaper model if he doesn't even know the brand. The only wearing parts really are the bands, correct?

just another gosling
The PVC rollers have been known to come apart with time. Mine did and I epoxied them back together. AFAIK the bands don't wear. At least mine hasn't in several thousand miles. So it just depends on what condition they're in. PVC rollers have a reputation of not being quite smooth. Mine aren't, but no biggie. I don't know what the Tacx rollers are made of.
