First Time on Rollers

Alright, so I got my rollers this afternoon, and today was my first time trying them out.

To many of you who hoped I would fall and make a fool of myself, well I'll just let you watch and see what happens. I think you may be laughing once or twice.

Enjoy

Now that I'm done playing on the internet, I think I'll actually go use them for a while



Youtube cut off my HEAD! Oh well, worst things have happened

I don't get it, first of all, I'll have to check out that link that explains what rollers are, and second of all, I just can't seem to figure out why you had to be in full spandex gear for that little trial... When I'm talking to you on skype, I can only really see you from the shoulders up, are you wearing spandex then?

And you're wearing your helmet! Priceless! It would be really dangerous if you fell off your bike when you WEREN'T MOVING!

I wore the helmet for mom's sake TANIS, and when the video was finished I did 20 minutes without it

And yes, I do always wear spandex while on skype

I think the helmet was a good call. Damn good first attempt.... pretty uneventful. I thought you might eat it on the dismount but it was ok... I want to try now.

I love rollers.
Well done on attempting with one leg...It took awhile to get to that point(being able to ride with both one legs...had to fix imbalances) but once you do...oh man you do feel the difference when you're out riding.

Some 'core roadies will tell newbs to get rollers first if you had to choose...I don't agree. What do you think?

Sweet! Given my balance I think it would be a disaster for me to even try them.

lol! good call trying it out in the corridor first so you can use the walls for balance - although that could've gone reeeeal bad if you sideswiped!

That looked totally sketchy. I don't think I want to try rollers. Good call on using the hallway for your first attempt.
