    Rollers: Minoura Moz vs Elite Parabolic???

    While I know Kreitler rollers get best reviews, these two I get can good pricing on. So looking for comments/opinions from anyone who has tried either of these to give feedback. This will be first time on rollers. Thanks

    One of the main values of rollers is that it teaches you to ride smoothly and hold a straight line. Parabolic rollers make that easy to do and thus negate the main value of rollers. Just say no to parabolic rollers.

    I would like to reiterate the post above. Parabolic rollers, like free motion rollers, defeat all of the good things that rollers do. The Minorca rollers are aluminum and will be preferred in the two choices. Don't over think these things. I know Kreitelrs get great reviews, but really, rollers are the simplest things in the world. Drums, with bearings and side rails. So you buy the Minoura and the bearings need to be replaced in years? How bad is that? Maybe the bearings on the Kreitlers last 15 years? The only failure part on the rollers might be the bearings, but beyond that ...

    Get the Minouras.
