Those Elite Nero rollers are out about 10-15% compared to a crank based power meter verefied against a Tacx Neo... Kickr Core's are historically out of whack as well... if you want to race on Zwift or Rouvy and have a guaranteed top 10 grab a Core or a set of nero rollers ad get 50 free watts out of it... PS its TACX (like tacks)
thanks man. Very good comparison, I have a question though --
How important to switch gears while on rollers?
Looks like with rollers you can stay in one speed all the time.
Looks like the weight of the bike is irrelevant on rollers.
Looks like frame material is also irrelevant (no road bumps to absorb or frame flexing)
So saying that can one pick up a used steel frame single-speed bike cheaply and use it for rollers?
I have been looking into getting a roller trainer, I used to love my kickr v5 but now that I cycle a lot more outside, it honestly feels like crap when I go on my kickr. The entire stroke feels way more difficult, even though I'm doing less watts which doesn't make sense to me.
Rollers too unstable
Rollers are so supremely awesome in terms of range of motion, I can't even imagine locking into a trainer. Sounds horrible. I use Sportcrafters Overdrive and they offer all of the resistance I could ever dream of. I can ride them for hours. It takes months to fully master the stroke on rollers, but it is well worth the wait. Supreme.
Seems that your front wheel was too far forward on the roller. Just saying.
Ahh you may want to check that info about cool downs and warmups....that is all the pros use for both recovery spins and warming up. Rollers just take practice.
Maybe you should browse about specific workouts on rollers which is common on track cycling (the origin of specific cycling exercises) and that's make this exercise Era you training on.
How i get thT projection feed back ?
Great insights on the mental factor. Very helpful thanks! You just cost me a lot of money! Lol
Rollers help core muscles
Thanks Taren, I don't have any sort of trainer at the moment, which is why I watched your video. I really like the idea of the rollers, I also appreciate that it may take a little bit of practice to get to grips with them - but I like that thought too. I also like the bit of sway and movement you get on rollers. One thing you didn't mention which has to be a BIG PLUS for rollers...you don't have to mess with your bike. No faffing around with skewers and rear wheels. Just hop on and go, that is a MASSIVE plus for rollers surely. Anyway thanks for the video.
I've found rollers very bad for numbness. I tend to dig into the saddle more to stay upright and it's very difficult to get out of the saddle with narrow tyres.
it feel twichy because your front roller is at the wrong place.
Why is your FPS on Zwift like 1 or 2?
When making your own rollers, (premade so expensive) could you fix the front wheel and have just the two rollers at the back? That would take out the crazy movements/ balance element?
Really like your channel , Taren💪
The instability comes from the uneven pedaling. Yes, if you pedal smoothly and 'round' instead of up and down, you will be much more stable. And never forget to engage the abdominals, this is where stability starts. The result will also be more effective pedaling...
