Tire noise with rollers?(5 posts)

Tire noise with rollers?MKD
Sep 5, 2003 10:27 AM
I just bought the Kreitler Dyno-Myte rollers. The rollers are very quiet, but my tires make more noise then I expected. I am using Michelin Pros with 120 PSI. Is the tire noise normal with rollers? Are other brand tires any different on rollers? Thx.
If it's alotterypick

buzz, then it's normal. it probably sound like buzz, buzz, buzz if your pedalling is not balanced, then as you get going it should sound like a steady low buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Now take you hands off the bar and viola. no hand on rollers.
Hmmm, hard to describe sound, not a buzz. Sounds ....MKD

almost like tennis shoes stopping on a indoor basketball court but not quite as loud. ???

I had that problem with brand new michelins kevlars - its kind of a squeaky sound. I think it has to do with the rubber on the aluminum roller. Once i rode the tires on the road a hundred miles or so, the initial layer wore off and i stopped having that sound. Its no big deal, just a little annoying.
I have put a few hundred miles on these tires, maybe just ...MKD
