What to consider when buying a bike roller? 

Bike rollers are very easy to set up and store, but on the other hand due to their size are difficult to transport to new locations. Be sure to place them in the place you want to train from the beginning so as to avoid relocating them in the future. If you feel you will have to move frequently you can always opt for the bike trainers of the lists that due to their smaller footprint are easy to transport and setup when relocating.

Rollers are designed so that their cylinders are free to turn and this is where you place your wheel. The two cylinders on the back is where you place your rear wheel and the balance your bike. Rollers are great for improving your balance and pedal stroke as you have to improve your pedaling with practice in order to stay balanced on the rollers. They are also great for recovery rides as you can ride at high cadence with low resistance.
