comment What are the advantages and disadvantages of turbo trainers and rollers?
@Dane, since they make the bike so much more sensitive to your movements, they train you to be able to hold a steady line. I wouldn't necessarily expect that they would help with track stands or other technical skills other than those related to maintaining a straight line and focusing your effort on forward motion, e.g. being able to ride with no hands, take clothes on/off, use your water bottle without swerving.

maybe it depends on the type of plastic? +1 for an innovative and relatively simple idea.

I am more interested in if there are design aspects that are particular to the teaching goal of a run-bike, and if so, what they are.
