rollers...(1 post)

Nov 19, 2003 6:25 PM
So a teammate gave me his minoura rollers, with a mag unit... Tried them out tonight, expecting death. It was alot easier than I had expected. I did "fall off" once but a foot on the ground stopped any thing bad from happening. I don't really see why people consider them hard to ride... It took about 5 minutes to figure it out, 10 to get comfortable enough to watch Flanders 2001 while I was training. I can retrieve my bottle from it's holder while riding them... One handed would be pretty awesome to learn. (that being said, a member of my club died two years ago when he fell off of his rollers and hit his head on glass...)

I'm looking forward to training with em this winter... Warming up with them before races should be awesome, with the intimidation factor working for me...
