Bike shop Lexington: Intro to Rollers and Trainers

If you are getting serious enough about cycling that you can't afford to let a little sleet or a hurricane get in your way, or if you want to have controlled training conditions for a customized workout, its time for you to check out our bike shop Lexington rollers or trainers. These are devices that allow you to use your bicycle in a stationary position indoors.
The basic difference between rollers and trainers is that trainers usually attach to the frame of your bicycle so you do not have to balance.
Rollers require that you balance the same way you have to to ride down the road. Imagine your bike sitting on three rolling pins- two for the back wheel and one in the front. Some riders use rollers because they require you to physically stay balanced, using proper form.
Rollers and trainers are recommended for warming up and cooling down, as you can easily control your intervals without external conditions, so even when the weather is pleasant, you can use them daily to optimize your riding.
