Cons:

These rollers have been used on average 3x/week for 18 years. The resistance unit is installed and is a nice upgrade. Warrantied and replaced two cylinders during that time due to bearing failure and replaced one band. Not bad. I guess its time for CycleOps to work on a Smart Roller.

Stands the test of time

Pros:
Durable, Easy to Install and Use, Stable
Cons:
Best Uses:
Road Bikes
While I find that most of the time, I get maximal benefit from the turbo trainer there are plenty of times that I prefer the rollers. These rollers are stable, quiet, and easy to store. The width is ideal for working on spinning and technique. I have taken to using them for race warmups, too as they keep me focused. I have replaced the rubber band and it was straightforward. This set of rollers will continue to be part of my training for a long time.

Take you Indoor Riding up a Notch

Pros:
Refines Balance
Cons:
Best Uses:
Road Bikes
Take your riding to the next level!! Rollers are not easy - no matter how many YouTube videos you watch... It takes practice and concentration. It's all worth it though. Smoother cadence, razor edge balance, awe and admiration from your training buddies (almost..)!! I've had an air trainer and a Fluid2 trainer, and this is by far the toughest indoor workout I've ever had. It took a couple weeks of trying and sitting against a wall to stay on, then another month to feel somewhat comfortable. After a season of riding indoors I'm still challenged and working at it - but I'm still riding it!! I've noticed an impressive smoothness in my riding, no side-to-side movement, smoother pedaling, The rollers are as quiet if not quieter than my Fluid trainer. Lighter and easier to take to LBS for training rides.

Rollers Are the Best

Pros:
Versatile, Quiet, Stable, Durable, Easy to Install and Use, Adjustable
Cons:
Best Uses:
Track Bikes, Road Bikes
I have always been a fan of rollers when I need to train but can't get outside because of weather or time constraints. These fold up and out of the way when not in use and the magnetic bar I added helps increase resistance. Roller will help you develop a smooth pedal stroke and no you aren't going to fall off and peel out and hit the wall ahead of you (you'll just fall over) ;). I am currently using them with the online training platform ZWIFT with my track bike. Rollers are a lot quieter than other types of trainers which makes them perfect for apartments or if you train before your partner/roommate wakes up! I highly recommend getting a set!

Amazing Rollers!

Pros:
Versatile, Woah Nelly Workout, Adjustable, Stable, Durable, Fun, Easy to Install and Use
Cons:
Best Uses:
Road Bikes, Sprints, City Bikes
These rollers have provided miles and miles of enjoyment and most of all, exercise. The best part of these is they don't take up much room. Allowing me to leave them set up. I can throw the bike on for a workout in an instant and ride. The rollers test your core strength to the max! Be careful the first time, but once you pick it up, and you will, it's easy and fun! I went from never riding rollers to being able to transition to no hands on rollers in about 5 rides.

Professional Quality Training, Virtually Anywhere You Go!

Pros:
Adjustable, Versatile, Durable, Easy to Install and Use
Cons:
Best Uses:

I would highly recommend this trainer to anyone I know who is looking for a very portable and hassle free way to be able to train wherever you are. At the track, in the velodrome before a cross race the options are truly limitless. It has been a great tool to help coordinate my balance and work on proper posture as well on the bike.

Good quality, good value

Pros:

Cons:
Best Uses:

I use these rollers in my basement mostly during the winter. These are great for doing a little recovery and just spinning the legs. Keeps me more mentally engaged than the trainer. Aluminum drums roll smoothly and quietly and the frame is plenty sturdy. I love that I can fold them in half and store them vertically or flat.

Very good when used with the resistance unit. A very smooth and silent ride comparable to much more expensive hometrainer. Add to this improved balance and core stability when riding rollers.

No issues

Pros:
Easy To Set Up, Improves Agility
Cons:
Best Uses:
Rollers are convenient, no rear wheel removal or swapping out skewers. Not as smooth as I would have hoped, but wheels have something to do with that. Bought last year, no design issues. Stores nicely when folded.

I honestly thought this would be more expensive.

Pros:
Easy to Install and Use, Stable
Cons:
Best Uses:
Long Rides
I cant handle riding in the cold. I cannot get my stationary bike to fit like my road bike and just sitting on that thing while its locked in position is boring and feels nothing like riding on the road. The rollers perform fine,they fold in the middle so you can store them, and there is a band that links the middle roller to the front roller that you have to pop in place before you fully extend it, and make sure its all flat which takes all of 15 seconds and you are ready to ride. I recommend setting the thing up in a doorway, where you can easily grab the walls while sitting up on the bike. When you ride, don't focus on the rollers, look up like you would look up the road and relax your elbows and shoulders. I have rode one hour pretty comfortably but have not ventured out of the doorway yet. I am pretty happy with this item,

I live by these rollers...

Pros:
Adjustable, Durable, Easy to Install and Use, Stable, Versatile
Cons:
Best Uses:
Sprints, Road Bikes, Long Rides
I purchased these rollers back in late 2007 as a dare from one of my training partners. And let me tell you, I live by these rollers. I not only use them in the winter, I use them all year round with my fixed gear bike. Talk about a workout... and with the adjustable resistance, it makes aerobic development, tempo development and muscular endurance workouts all worth it. Let me prove it to you... [@] So if you are on the fence on whether or not to purchase at set of these rollers..You would be wrong if you chose not to... Keep or toss!

Improve your riding all winter long

Pros:
Durable, Versatile, Stable, Easy to Install and Use, Adjustable
Cons:
Best Uses:
Sprints, Road Bikes, Long Rides
My husband and I purchased CycleOps Aluminum Rollers with Resistance two years ago and have improved our cycling by using them through long Idaho winters. After the scary first 20 minutes figuring them out, they have helped us improve pedal stroke and handling skills. They are anything but boring as it's a mentally active workout maintaining position on the rollers, but not so consuming an effort that we can't use the remote control to watch the news, sports, or a movie. The handling skills I learned on the rollers saved me from crashing in slippery conditions during the summer. The resistance feature is great. It allows for variation in difficulty, almost like riding up hills.

Roll like a Pro.

Pros:
Durable
Cons:
Best Uses:
Road Bikes
Rollers, in general, are a great way to lay down those early season base miles when the weather does not want to corporate. There is no better way to perfect both balance and pedal stroke, both useful skills to have come "go time" in the sprig. The CycleOps rollers have proven to to be very easy to set-up and very durable. They have outlasted my sanity after spending too many bleak winter days pedaling along the fast road to nowhere. Go Pro. Go rollers. Go CycleOps.
