    Aluminum frame - indoors and out

    Our weather has been really rainy this summer and trying to fit in my ride has become slave to the forecast.

    Is there any harm by taking my R1000 indoors one day for a ride on the rollers and then the next day outside for a road ride? I know aluminum won't rust but with the change in humidity or anything cause issues within the frame?

    Also, other than needing tires quicker than I thought... do rollers cause any additional stress on the bike?

    Taking a bike inside and outside is only a worry if the frame is cold enough to cause moisture to condense inside. Not often an issue in the summer.

    Rollers cause no stress to the bike that it wouldn't experience on the road.

    Plus I assume you are bringing your bike indoors between rides anyway...

    No significant stress from rollers... not even too bad in the tire wear dept (nothing as bad as the trainer because not as much resistance).

    Enjoy!
