Also...I'm going to use Vittoria's Hometrainter tyres, but was wondering if it was safe to use latex inners for 'rolling', because Michelin latex inners are all i have now? ( Heat management )

Hm, enough money to spend for extra hometrainer tyres, but not enough to by Butyl inners?
However, neither trainer tyres nor regular tyres get so hot that the inner explodes or melts or whatever you feared.
--> Use it, don't worry.

If it would get flat, I wouldn't expect you to have an accident (you're still on your hometrainer)... :mrgreen:


truedat :thumbup:
it's just that i stocked up with latex inners..but i won't be worrying then :beerchug:

Hometrainer tyres are great on home trainers, and I'd use them with butyl tubes, just for the convenience of not needing to pump them up every day.

However I would NOT use home trainer tyres on rollers. They are really slippery, and the tyre doesn't heat up anywhere near as much as they do on home trainers

Huh ? I've been doing that too!

:oops:
I have a Cyclops Fluid2 and Nashbar parabolic rollers. I don't worry about any "odd forces" on either. But I use moderate clamping force on the trainer; just enough to take out any play.


me too (using a 879-gramm-frame :D ). i am using a tacx cycleforce-never had any problems.

As long as the bike is level, it should not be a problem. If you don´t use a book or something to lift the front wheel up a bit, you might get some stress on the frame, but still it shouldn´t be much of a problem

No problems. I always use road tires and latex tubes on the rollers.

I had an explosive blowout on my rollers last week while jamming pretty hard.

Nothing catastrophic happened. I was just startled, found myself riding on the rim, slowed and stopped quickly and put my foot down much as if it were on a road. No big deal.

The blowout was caused by a small cut in my tire from the prior road ride. I hadn't seen it when I changed the road flat. The tube "herniated" out the slit until it popped.
