|Does anyone know roughly how much internal resistance roolers have? That is, riding on rollers is equivalent to riding on what grade? Is there a way I can calculate this for my particular set of rollers?

|Roller resistance is highly variable from brand to brand and model to model. Plus, your tire inflation can have a huge effect. I'm not aware of anyone publishing data on roller resistance.|

|Someone at Kreitler might have some data. They developed rollers with smaller-then-normal drum diameters to increase resistance.
Even if you had numbers, not sure how you would differentiate between simulated "grade" and simulated "aerodynamic drag."
