My Dad's offered for my Grandfather to buy us rollers for Christmas and I am wondering which brand would be good and portable. :?:
Thanks for your help :!: .

Tess, I noticed that the Bolton's rollers were nice and light (compared to ours) - you should quiz Tom!

Nice and light?
Resistance required ?

without resistance it probably comes down to 2 :

1/ http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/au/e ... -prod31106 (I think Ruby has these )


2/ http://www.wiggle.com.au/elite-arion-parabolic-rollers/ ( I think Colin has these )

Hi Jenny and Bob,
We, as Pete correctly states, got the Tacx Antares 1000. Large conical drums help keep the bike in the centre of the rollers, super quiet, min resistance good feel when underway, they concertina rather than fold for stowage/trans. $200 with free post good price from CRC. Delivery to door 2-4weeks probably.
regards, happy hunting
Ruby + Alan

Hi there, newbie on the site and this probably isn't the best first post but I have some rollers that I'm needing to sell due to space restrictions. Excellent condition, ridden I kid you not.. a dozen times.

Elite Arion Parabolic Rollers - Wiggle have em for $261 (delivered I'm assuming)

Looking for $130 Pick up from Strathfield. Currently in storage. Ping me if you're interested.

I have ridden on quite a lot of different rollers. While I don't have a recommendation I didn't like any of the ones with small diameter rollers or the ones with tapered ends. I haven't ridden every brand/model so its not to say that ones within those specs don't exist that are good.

When I get around to buying some for myself I'll look for large metal rollers with metal ends. Like most things its personal preference though
