Before buying a professional bike roller, it is a good idea to consider what kind of bicycle you have, what kind of training you intend to do (in terms of frequency and pedalling experience), and finally how much space you have available. Once these considerations have been made, all that remains is to refer to a specialised e-commerce such as ciclimattio.com: our staff is made up of many passionate cyclists who try out the products themselves and will therefore be able to give advice about the choice and assembly instructions for bike home trainers.
The market offers a wide range of rollers to meet the needs and preferences of all cyclists who choose indoor training. Here are the main ones:
SPINBIKE: This is the exercise bike of the future, it is a bicycle in its own right but has no wheels but a stable support on the ground. With the best ones, you can even simulate sprints on the pedals without fear. The measurements of the bike can be accurately reported so that there are no postural problems. Finally, through the app, you can simulate various training and entertainment modes... the ultimate 'Cyclogamer' workstation!
CYCLOMULINE: With the advent of the disc brake and the development of increasingly advanced electronics, the moped has entered the hearts of all cyclists, even the most wary. They are very quiet magnetic systems, so very suitable for those who want to train without disturbing the neighbourhood.
The control applications of this tool are many, easy and intuitive and allow you to pedal and prepare for the cycling season while having fun! On some of the best models, a vibration is incorporated to simulate even the cobblestones of the Arenberg forest! You can customise your workouts by following a training plan that the application will create especially for you or you can upload the workout that your trainer has designed for you. Last but not least, you can compete with your friends in sprints or climbs to the last pedal stroke on roads halfway around the world without moving from your living room.
INTERACTIVE ROLLERS: The contact between the roller and the tyre attached to a magnetic motor will create rolling resistance. Usually a very hard special tyre is fitted, which is not suitable for road use and is perfect for total grip with the roller. The control applications have the same features and applications as the mopeds and still allow you to train effectively. The only caution to be taken is that with the advent of the disc brake, not all bikes are prepared to be fitted with these systems.
CLASSIC ROLLER: The classic roller is the simplest and most rustic roller, it is the progenitor of them all and has accompanied many cyclists to this day. The resistance is adjusted manually via a lever on the handlebar. The bike is installed exactly like the interactive roller but the resistance mechanism is simpler.
FREE ROLLERS: Derived from the rollers used in velodromes to warm up the legs, they do not have a resistance function, which is only given by the gears, they are in fact used to warm up and loosen up the legs before and after an effort; they are the simple, easy and light rollers. Good balance is necessary in order not to fall. It is very useful for training breath and concentration!
The installation of the bike on the roller changes depending on the type of roller.
In fact, in the case of a free-standing roller, no installation is necessary; you simply pedal over the rollers and train your balance.
In the case of the cyclomuline, on the other hand, the installation of the bike is very simple, as it 'replaces' the rear wheel, allowing it to be installed on any bicycle without any problems or damage to the frame. The same cassette that is present on the wheel is installed on the cyclomuline, which allows an easy "switch" in case you want to return to cycling on the road during the weekend.
Finally, on the interactive roller and on the classic roller, the bike is kept intact and is attached via an adapter to the rear axle.
