Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Rollers

Does anyone have a brand/model they prefer? I'm shopping around and I need some input.

Thanks
Kevin

try the training & nutrition forum for the widest range of info.

kreitler rollers are the **** but are mad expensive.
i ride on cycleops aluminum rollers with mag resistance, which work fine.

pvc rollers are cheaper but warp.
