Roller Trainers -V- Wind/Mag Trainers???

Postby mobster » Mon May 07, 2007 8:33 pm

In the market for a trainer to use with my roadie. Are roller trainers as difficult to use as they look (with clipless P's)? Any other tips for roller trainers or should I just buy a standard issue wind or mag trainer? Safe riding guys, Mobster.

Most of the riders on this site have either used the mag trainer or rollers but not both.

I've only used rollers and have had no problems with them.

Is it one of those things that you learn pretty quick how to do it ?

Do you have to pedal all the time or can you briefly "coast" to assist in unclipping ?

I would prefer a set of rollers, but would like to try some out first.....

I've only done it on a track bike, which is fixed, so no coasting.
