Rollers are like a treadmill minus the wide belt. The rollers, cylinders in a frame, are lined up to support your wheels and you ride on these. It is free of support so you have to balance. Considered by many to be the closest to road indoors, next to a velodome.

Prices can vary greatly and design also differs. Some models can be found with a fork mounting bracket, I have one of these (cheap performance bike), for those who haven't suppressed their fear of falling over.
