Question About Roller Purchase - Tacx Eco-track(4 posts)

Question About Roller Purchase - Tacx Eco-trackTimPlumbee
Jan 4, 2003 9:34 PM
Hey,
I came across the Eco Track at BikesWholesale for 99 bucks... while the price is good, is anyone familiar with the brand or the quality? I am on a budget (actually, my wife is on a budget and she has my money ;-) but if the quality/performance would be better if i spent an extra 40 odd bucks, then i would (try to) do it. Any comments are appreciated.

Thanks
Tim

if those are the foldy jobbies, ive got a set. theyre good for the money i think, but PVC drums arent super smooth at the ends.

if you can find any aluminum drumed rollers for that extra 40 odd bucks, then go with those.

Thanks, it isn't a folding one, the folding one is $129, but it seems fairly simuliar.

Something i just thought of, how much does it cost to ship one of them from FL to PA? Would a folding one be cheaper shipping?

Thanks again
Tim

I bought the rollertrack, with the largest drums (110 mm) and non-folding. It leans up in a closet, or under a bed just fine.

Quality on this one is top notch, very smooth and stable.
