Rollers: mount and dismount(5 posts)

I finally figured out how to ride rollers a few weeks ago. Now I can cruise along without fear.

The problem is that I still haven't figured out a safe way to mount and dismount. Actually, dismounting isn't all that scary, but mounting certainly is. What's the secret?

Set your rollers up near a wall, piece of furniture, door jam, etc. so that you can steady yourself with
one hand. Clip in, start pedalling, then let go.

I use one of those two-step kitchen ladders, or whatever they're called. Works great and is light and portable.

The wall/doorjam trick works well but does anyone feel squirrely when on the handlebars? I have to sit straight up to not feel like I'm gonna launch.

it's all a little squirrely. But it does get better. nmbill
