Hi has anyone got these rollers am looking to find out can float be switched off as I would imagine max rev outs would be easier to do on a fixed roller than floating
any feedback would be great

Late feedback I know but i find them wayyy worse than something like kreitler's for max rev outs. the float just rocks me all over the shop. plus with the kreitlers you get to stick a fan etc on them to get a little more resistance if you ever wanted to do more interesting indoor endurance sessions

I have the Tacx Gallaxia rollers and purchased this unit to provide a bit of resistance when needed. Not made specifically for these rollers, but still works. My only complaint was the 7 levels of resistance are really more like 3, but for the money was still cheaper than buying a new set of rollers with built-in resistance or even smart rollers.

these definitely have 7 levels of resistance.
you really need to utilise a fork stand for the harder levels though.
