I can understand the two rollers in back, but other than a spare roller, the front one doesn't seem necessary.

That Tacx Vortex deal @ 250$ from last year seems now like the deal of the decade.
I still think that to be able enjoy/keep training indoors, a smart trainer with an App like Zwift or Trainer Road is a must.

Hey, thanks for clearing all that up, and sharing your knowledge. Nothing better than a RFDer who adds absolutely nothing to the conversation.

No way, trainers are having issues just staying on shelves.

Very necessary. The front roller is connected to the back rollers and it spins when you pedal. So that means the front tire spins when you pedal. When the tire spins, it is way more stable and you can stay upright easier. This is the reason why it’s easier to balance on a bike when it’s rolling vs trying to do a track stand with the bike not moving.

When you were in school and all the answers to the math questions were in the back of the book, did you still go ask your teacher and friends what the answer to every question was, or did you check the back of the book?

Google is your friend. You. ABSOLUTELY added nothing to the conversation by questioning why the front roller exists. So you're also a hypocrite.

The main purpose of buying rollers is specifically because of the instability, the requirement to balance, to keep a high cadence, and never slow down your pedaling. On a regular trainer you can be a sloppy lazy rider all over the place, you can coast, grab water without worrying, etc.

Rollers require a smooth pedal stroke, a stable upper body (balance) and focus, which some people prefer.

There, since you insisted on filling the thread with useless "I don't understand" rather than just learning it yourself, you've now been taught. I've perpetuated your inability to figure anything out for yourself.

you can get one of these instead. The one with roller in the front simulate riding on the road.

Hey Mike I'll get my BMT on herb and cheese, toasted with shreds & green pepper, jalapeno, onion, black olive. After toasting I'll throw some lettuce and tomato on it, and a line of Mayo. Thanks!!

I hope you can adjust the front height because riding in that position... would be challenging!

Even though you didn't ask, I'll also tessellate your cheese, but only because you're such a Stud from the region of York.
