|I use a short stool to stand on to get on them. I'll use the same stool to put my foot down when I unclip. Other than that no chair or wall to hang on.
Why are you concerned about roller technique in the middle of summer?

|First day on rollers...funny/painful experience||cabinfever|

|I was housesitting, and decided to bring my new rollers to try. I'm out on the deck, and I get the bike on the rollers and I put a plastic deck chair next to me. I hold onto the chair with one hand, and put another hand on the bar. Then I begin pedalling, and get the nerve to let go of the chair. That poor plastic deck chair, may it rest in piece...or at least in the 4 pieces it was in after a crushed it.|

|I keep the rollers in the garage next to the wife's van, which provides a nice step-up and a decent cd collection.|| |
