I'm in the same vote Rob
seriosly thinking of buying $212 including delivery
this model is fairly new and a hell of alot cheaper than simular types with the sliding action
interested in others views as well
If you're new, get something with parabolic edges. You'll crash less.
Great link Brett...to Tacx - will take a closer look at these and they look light weight....hope they come in bag?
The bigger the roller diameter the less watt input required. Aluminuim rollers will feel & stay round longer.
stay focused and don't look down for a few seconds :) as soon you loose a lapse of concentration you will be sent off kissing the floor
Rob, you could ask on AC group Stationary Trainering at http://www.adelaidecyclists.com/group/stationarytrainering
i have a set of Tacx rollers for years and years ago. They have never missed a beat (that being said, very simple equipment, very little to actually go wrong)
Mine aren't parabolic, and the learning curve is a bit steep in general.. but once you get the hang of it, no problems. The pay off is a silky smooth pedal stroke :)
just to make things difficult, I think you can get rollers with completely straight rollers, or straight with curved edges, or you can get concave rollers.
Those Tacx Galaxia rollers look very interesting!
