Someone at my LBS suggested rather strongly that instead of getting a trainer that I get rollers. His argument was that it trained you better, resulted in smoother riding and better focus (because if you don't focus, you slide off the rollers). He also said it would be more appropriate because I ride a lot (about 7600 miles last year).
I've read comments from people about rollers before, but since I wasn't seriously looking into trainers at the time, I only have vague recollections about them. Seems a lot of people didn't like them because it took so much concentration. So I thought I'd get some opinions here.
Oh, my apartment is small - about 600 sq ft total - so do rollers take up more space than other trainers?
