Where did the Nasbar Resistance Rollers go?

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

Where did the Nasbar Resistance Rollers go?

*Edit* A closer look shows them to be Nashbar Fastrack Rollers. *Edit*


For the last couple of years my wife and I have hosted a spin class in our garage each Tues. and Thurs. throughout the winter months (time change -> time change). A local cyclist and friend leads it with music, instructions and custom workouts that change each time. It's really a great way to fit training in when it's dark after work. Anyhow....

We often have new people show up who don't have trainers, so both the class leader and one other regular brought some rollers along as an extra option if we ran out of trainers etc..

For the past month or two I've been using one of those sets of rollers. It's an older Nashbar Roller set with a magnetic resistance unit with a dial on the side. Extremely quiet, VERY smooth and has large grey plastic rollers, not the low-radius ones they sell now. They feel great and supposedly were under $200 when he bought them. Aside from the resistance being a bit high (I can only use either the bottom or one click up on it realistically, and there are probably 8-10 positions on the dial), the roller set is amazing.

My question: Does anyone know where I could find a set of these rollers? My pedal stroke technique has been improving with every hour spent on them, and pedaling "circles" is feeling easier the more I work on it. But alas, spin season is over, and I'll be back on the road, which is great, but I'd like to be able to jump on the rollers for warm-ups at races, and also just to keep my technique in check throughout the season.
