    Free for Seattle Area Pickup - old school trainers

    older but fully functional cycling trainers. Fuck Zwift. Go old school and stare angrily at your garage wall.

    Have both a free roller style (with wind resistance) and a fixed style (with magnetic resistance).

    Both free for pickup. I'm in the Seattle area.

    Fixed trainer always makes me want to blow my brains out. I've been curious to try rollers and see if they make anything more interesting. I'll snag those and re-home them if I'm not using 'em.

    ^^ Do it!!

    Rollers definitely make the time go differently, but wonít say easier. Much more engaging, but unless there is resistance isnít a really hard workout, but a great way to work spend some z2 and low z3 time. With resistance I would do step tests upward of 400w for relatively short time periods. Also excellent to smooth out your pedal stroke and great for balance, youíll be able to hold a much straighter line on road to singletrack IME

    they are yours.

    Funny story.... years ago I was riding these rollers in in the living room of a rental... I zoned out, slipped off, my rear wheel hit the ground effectively going about 19, 20 mph and jerked me forward, putting my shoulder through the drywall. The rollers are unscathed though +1 to everything VTskibum said...
