I’ve just bought a set of cheap secondhand Minoura Rollers (with resistance) for use at work. I will exclusively use my mountain bike on them and I’m sorting out an alternative, piecemeal wheelset to use for commuting/roller work.
Those of you that use rollers (or wheel on trainers) with your mountain bikes, what is the noise like with the knobbles? Or what tyres can you recommend?
I can pick up cheap CST Jack Rabbit tyres locally which have a reasonably close packed XC tread pattern, or alternatively I can spend a bit more and get something more like a slick.
