Default Re: What kind of kit is reliable

I had a FD and liked it very much. I think if you let the air down a bit, clamp the thing in place then air the tire back up it would not slip. I don't remember mine slipping much but I wasn't where it rained much. Then again my weight of 240 (might have been 260 back then) surely had the same effect of increasing pressure against the roller so it didn't slip. I think it works alot like a fan belt on a car if it's loose it's gonna slip. I've seen videos of FD running in snow obviously getting snow into the roller.
