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.

  • I think if he exert his body weight more onto rear wheel than front wheel That better bcoz front wheel have one roller only, which would slip if you over excert it

  • 1. don't put your rollers on a shaggy carpet 2. do put them close to the wall so you can hold yourself up to start, and 3. set up a large fan in front of you - you'll need it.

  • The front roller should be right underneath your front hub. Its quite a little bit too far out. ;D thats why the e-bike worked better, because of the bigger wheelbase. U need to adjust it to the "required length" as u mentioned in the video XD

    scsmannyscsmannyPirms 12 dienām
  • I don’t think you should be riding on carpet. If the carpet at any point touches the roller even the slightest bit, it will cause the rollers to slow down and therefore not work properly

  • I think part of the problem is that the front roller is too far out. The front axle should be right over the roller. This is why you keep rolling off the back. This also makes it harder to ride straight.
