|I bought a set of Minoura rollers a few years ago and find it so monotonous using them. I'd like to be able to watch a movie or something to take my mind off watching the seconds tick by. Somebody told me that there is a frame you can get that attaches to the rollers which allows you to blink without making a new hole in the wall. Has anyone heard of such a thing? I thought that this would be a cheaper option than buying a trainer.

|Did a quick web search and here is what I found.
|Kreitler makes one, too, but...||gtx|

|they both seem kinda pricey for what they are, and then you'll probably want/need to add resistance, also. Seems like at that point you might as well just get a Minoura mag trainer for $100.|

|I got the attachment for my rollers because a couple of injuries will not allow me to put much pressure on my wrist.It pretty much turns your rollers into a trainer.I really have not used it too much.Talk about monotonous... It will put you to sleep real fast. I am not real good on my rollers so they keep me thinking about not falling off.|

|I converted a bunch of movies to mpeg so I can watch them on my computer while on the rollers. As long as the monitor is straight in front of me I dont have any problems. When you have to look to the side you tend to drift in that direction.|

|One of the main reasons to spend time on rollers is to improve balance, cadence, etc. I find rollers to be MUCH less mind-numbing than a standard trainer. You have to pay attention. I do the computer thing or bring my rollers upstairs into my dining room (my wife loves this one) to watch a flick on the tube. Either way, by the time your done you may as well buy a regular trainer and have the option of doing either one.
