    All mountain 160mm bike: check
    Dropper Post: check
    “Super Gravity” tyres: check
    Double Barrelled Shock: check
    200mm brake discs: check
    Wide bars / short stem: check

    so, lets rip todays ride:

    ah, ok, maybe a tad overbiked…….

    But at least it isn’t raining in here……… 😉

    (i ask for humble STW forgiveness & leniency and apologize profusely for the terrible choice of socks! Also, my rollers are a bit short too)

    It’s a MTB, clearly your rollers should be on the stairs pointing down.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if your rollers don’t last too long.

    They’ll probably die of shame.

    I like that your breaks are covered.

    Get that under your stairs tidied.

    Is that a cycle-op roller? How do you get on with it?

    It looks a little excessive, do you put the rollers on the stairs to simulate climbs/descents ?

    What has been seen cannot be undone… SHORTS!

    You need big old 510s and knee pads under casual buggies to look the part though…

    No armour? No gnar-pyjamas? No full face helmet?

    Pfft.

    here’s a trick for you to practice;

    Under the stairs needs a clear out.

    Yeah, 26″ so the rollers completely failed to come alive……

    I can only imagine how hot it would be in a FFH and baggies/pajamas/armour!

    (only ever wear lycra for the rollers/turbo in private 😉

    It’s also f hard to ride as the wheel base is so long it has a negative steering centre. I actually use the rollers with my medium sized HT on road tyres, but i just wondered if the Zesty would fit. The answer being no, not really.

    PS, they are Jet Black rollers, seem really pretty decent, and even without a “load” as such, when you get up the gears, even with road tyres, there is plenty of resistance as the rollers are small diameter (so they really hammer it round!). I can easily do stood up big ring practically-flat-out sprinting on them on my other bike. (For about a minute until i melt anyway 😉

    How do you manage not to go off the front of the rollers with that setup?

    yup, and i totally slayed all that Alpine gnar on it too. I can 100% truthfully say i didn’t fall off once during the whole trip……….. 😉

    I know, sorry. Short length of rollers precluded no handed simultaneous tea and chocolate biscuit consumption! Can you get ‘cupholders’ for MTBs??

    OMG, forget the visions of Fatima etc. Beelzebub himself has appeared on your shirt (above the sweaty bits). The priest will be round at 06:15 tomorrow to save you. Stay safe tonight.
