Are you sure you want rollers with resistance? I don't think that they make them, you get plenty of resistance just from shifting gears. I could be completely wrong on this, but in looking in my mail order catalogs, no rollers with resistance. Trainers with resistance, no rollers. When you say "I think" and "resistance" makes me think you want a trainer. Come in fluid or magnet forms of resistance. Some are noisy, wide price ranges, Colorado Cyclist has a wide aray of rollers and trainers to check out.

Kreitler rollers are where you want to look. they have a website, www.kreitler.com. I just purchased some last week, and this is what i found out

The smaller the drums = more resistance. their web site gives some great info. I chose the challenger rollers ($299). These have 4.5 inch rollers. I think they give me a great workout, and they are so quiet , you can easily carry on a conversation or watch tv while spinning. If you desire more resistance (which i dont think you will) they make a attachment fan thats fits on all of there rollers.

cheap? well no.

you can get them online, i think coloradocyclist.com has them. but your LBS can order them, you may save some on shipping.

I have a pair of the Krietler Dyno-Lyte rollers and they provide very good resistance. The combined benefits of resistance and spinning are unmatched.
thats what i wantishmael

those or else i was thinking that maybe some nashbars with the resistance thing would be resistant enough but i dont know...do you know where i can get a used set of the dyno lites or else some other ones with low resistance for cheap..

Check out the Minoura Rollers in ReviewsKristin

People seem to have great things to say about Minoura. There is some mention that these aren't as nice as the more expensive Kreithler's, but that they're a decent option if you don't have $300 to shell out. I'm not sure about resistance.

Nashbar? Personally, I wouldn't trust anything from Nasbar.
