Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Winter is coming Kreitler Question.

Anyone use the flywheel accessory on their rollers? Is it worth the money, and does it add road feel and momentum as advertised?
Thanks for any info.

I use Krietler and have the killer headwind unit. It works well, offers good resistance and blows wind on you to cool you down

I actually like having the flywheel, it makes it much easier to be smooth on the rollers, and you can actually coast for a several seconds. It does make it feel more road like than without the flywheel.
