Hi Tariq, I recently bought this for me and my wife for indoor teaining, super-easy setup, hassle-free, but since we re absolutely new to cycling the roller starting (level 0) resistance feel so hard for us, we dont even completed the spindown test. Do you know any tricks to make the roller feels loghter than factory setup?
Tariq, thanks for the great review on this trainer - i bought one and really like it but i am having an issue with the resistance (kind of embarrassing). I use heartrate and speed sensors from wahoo and i do not use a power meter , the embarraaing part is i find the resistance very hard (i am 61 yrs ild) shooting my hr in the 150 bpm zone ( with an average spped of about 15 km/hr) which is too high to sustain for lengthy periods of time. I had been using a tacx bushido before and the average speed was much higher and avg hrate bpm much lower. My question - is there a way to lesen the resistance if you are not using a power meter? And secondly if i did buy a power meter would that give me the ability to lessen the resistance or is the default level the lowest resistance it can go? Thanks Tariq
Great video. I'm considering buying this. You connected with Favero Assioma! Did it work perfectly? Thank you.
Very helpful video. Thank you
I have a canyon endurace carbon bike and I could never install my XDR wheelhub on my directdrive for some reason, plus I'll have to switch back and forth between shimano and sram if I want use my other bike to train, the roller actually has a perfect use case for me
Yeah, Pricing doesn't make any sense considering you can get trainers with built in power meters for the same price. Wahoo is getting pretentious. Thanks for your review.
Great video. I just received my Rollr and got it because I hate the hassle of taking my back wheel off, like the convenience of just popping it on as a quick “warm up” before an outdoor ride, and since I already have a power meter, it’s a seamless fit. Had a Wahoo Snap and this is much better for my indoor needs.
Can you do A review on OSPW SYSTEMS .
If you gain Some watt with that system yes or no and is it better 4 mountainbike than 4 Road cycling. Because I see now Some big mountainbike name’s running Ceramic speed systems on there bike.Making there bike ready for the cape epic.
Does this help with comfort somewhat? I see potential for this even though rear movement is minimal. As you say if you want it you know.
Price is prohibitive, nice review
No need for training tire?
What do you think about that front wheel clamping mechanism? I mean, they say its okay, I just wonder what kind of stress is being put on the fork and wheel to keep your bike up. And that isn't even going into what might happen out of the saddle or sprinting. Color me skeptical of that one part.
A solution for a problem that doesn't exist? Smart rollers already exist and for those that enjoy rollers, they likely want to ride rollers that have freedom at both the front and rear wheels.
I won't buy one. I have a Kickr and it gets the job done with my SRAM equipped bike. My Ekar equipped bike now has a potential place within the Wahoo ecosystem. So what? Wahoo continues to annoy me with their lack of N3W support but I'm not going to work around this by buying an $1400.00 Wahoo Roller/Power Pedal solution, rather than what should be by now a $100.00 free hub option for the Kickr.
The ideal use case is, as a promotional tool for Wahoo at track, road racing or e-racing events.
And let's not forget, the cyclists who wants the latest new toy to impress the crowd.
A great Christmas gift for the cyclists who has everything.
Unfortunately, it's has been introduced too late and by next Christmas, that person will most probably have bought it.
To me it seems like a compromise that isn't very good at anything.
It takes longer to set up than a roller.
It too big to carry around.
Twice the contact with a rolling cylinder than a wheel on trainer (twice the noise ?).
Not as reactive as a direct drive.
Great video as always. I can see these being used before or after races for sure, I can't see dropping $800 on one though.
this device is so useless it is amazing it was even introduced
Tremendous content as always ! Many thanks for posting. Such great production too - sound, lighting etc. Very well done indeed Tariq :o)
