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

Roller Fan

Hi,

Just ordered the Krietler Killer Headwind fan for my rollers. The rollers don't have a belt groove on both sides of the front roller. Any ideas on how to make them work? I prolly should have done some research before pulling the trigger, but whatever. I was thinking about putting 2 bands around the roller ends and running the fan belt between the two bands. Alternately, there is a groove on the rear roller, but then i'd be getting a tailwind. I kind of wanted the breeze in my face. Any ideas?

Thanks,

I would just hook it up and try it. I used to run a fan off of my rollers, and I still would if I knew where the heck the fan is

Just put the belt around the flat roller. The grove in the fan pulley should keep the belt in it's place.
