Ergo

“Riding on rollers required 2.5% greater VO2 compared to riding a stationary trainer or ergometer at the same mechanical power level (p < 0.05). This increase was likely due to the metabolic cost of balance associated with cycling on rollers and suggests that rollers may better simulate the metabolic cost of overground cycling at approximately 70% of VO2 peak."


The metabolic cost of balancing


Is why I like my rollers.. although they have yet to be unpacked from their trip here.
