This week it's back to good old fashioned Learn Quick. I've always had an issue training for road cycling but rollers seemed to be right up my street. The allow the bike to move and do not require fixing the bike to train. However, they can be a little difficult to learn to mount and ride. Watch me struggle.

  • Man! Bike rollers are a total different skill than riding a bike in the street. That's the reason why it is so difficult to learn, because it's a new skill. And that's also the reason why practicing them won't improve your bike riding skill, because there is no transfer between different skills. Nice video though!

  • You need to learn how to use a trainer! Put a block under your front wheel, so that it is level! I have a block that belongs to the trainer, and you should have one too! Every trainer comes with one. It is an ecential piece. Also, a turbo trainer is one where you remove the backwheel and put the turbo trainer in like it is yoyr wheel. Now this can connect to zwift and ride virtually, as give you controllable power. Your red thing is a static trainer. It can be used with zwift, but you need a speed sensor of some sort to use it. Anyways, there exist smart rollers that can connect to zwift. You also have multiple things to put your front end of the bike into, ones that adjust to virtual gradient and an adjustable fan. This will give you virtual riding! Or you could buy a wahoo kickr bike but that one is more than you're bike I believe (like more than $1000). This gives you even virtuak brakes ones their available (the bike has brakes but the game does not allow to use that yet). It is wicked, because it is like a cycling simulator just like you know e.g. racing simulators! I would love to have such things but I don't have the money so I ride just with a static trainer and the important bloch under my front wheel!👍

  • I still can't get over the fact that if you lose focus for just a second you can fall off of that thing so easily. Especially with those bars and wires exposed like that - it give you a lot to trip on and I could easily see someone losing focus after a hard set.

  • it really annoys me when you said a roller and a trainer pretty much the same thing even thought a rollers is meant for cadence and stability on the other hand trainers are for power and cadence but i dont think you care

  • Glad he got the hang of it but front spinner was too far. The center of the wheel was not over the center of the spinner, hence why you had such violent turns and kept falling backwards. Also sturdier surface would be best 👍

  • The amount of friction the carpet is putting on the bottom of the rollers made this 10x harder for you. Also the bike falls off cause there's 1 roller in the front and your bikes front wheel rests behind it so if your shift your weight too far forward it pops the back wheel off.
