Which Rollers?

I'm doing a 250mile ride in July but am finding it difficult to get out on the bike for training so need to get myself some sort of indoor trainer. I've ruled out a turbo due to noise and hassle factor plus I'm not looking for high intensity so rollers look like the better choice for me. Only want to spend £150 max but there seems to be a few choices at this price point, is there a stand out model I should be looking at or are they all pretty much the same ?


Cannondale Synapse 105
Giant FCR3
GT Avalanche 3.0
Canyon Nerve AM 6.0

    I have the cyclops branded version of these (same but re-branded for cyclops). I like them a lot.

    However, I would say that I find a turbo better for high intensity intervals. Rollers, particularly without any resistance, are good for longer tempo sessions - and anecdotally good for pedalling form etc.

    You can get a progressivevresistance version of he above rollers too..
