Going Nowhere for 100 Miles

01.8.2008 | 10:52 am

Back in December, Susan gave me an early Christmas present. And by "Susan gave me an early Christmas present," I of course mean "I bought it for myself, and told Susan what she was giving me."

It was a bike-related present. A really nice bike-related present. In fact, it was the nicest, most expensive bike-related present I got this year. Which brings up the very important question: why haven’t I mentioned it on my blog yet?

The answer is simple: I’ve been embarrassed to.

Here’s what I got:

Yes, I got myself — I mean, Susan got me — Inside Ride’s E-Motion Rollers.

Why I Love These Rollers
There are all kinds of reasons to love these rollers, because they’re totally unlike any other rollers out there. Here’s why:

  • Stand up and attack: The frame for these rollers floats on another base frame, and then there are guard rollers keeping your back wheel from hopping off the drums. Combined, this means you can stand up and make a massive sudden attack effort, just like on the road, and you don’t fly off the front of the rollers. It’s incredible.
  • No Drift off the side: There are inline skate wheels pivoted horizontally on either side of the front drum. Any time you drift off the left or right, you hit those wheels and they act like bumpers, keeping you on the drums, instead of crashing off to the side.
  • Resistance: You can set them up to have no resistance, like regular rollers, or you can choose any of three levels of resistance.

Riding these rollers, I can ride no-handed, I can stand up and make an all-out effort, I can do high cadence training, I can do climb-style training.

In other words, I get all the benefits of both rollers and trainers. These rollers make inside winter training so much nicer.

Why I’m Embarrassed
All that fawning praise aside, I’ve still avoided mentioning that I own these rollers. Why would that be?

Price. I’m  embarrassed that I paid so much for a pair of rollers. I mean, that Susan paid so much for a pair of rollers.

Although I have to say, the more I use these rollers, the more it seems to me that they’re worth it. I mean, if I pay $100 for one set of rollers but hate using them and so don’t, are they a better deal than paying eight times that much for a set that I use — and enjoy — every day?

The above, by the way, is just one of many ways I rationalize the cost of these things to myself. I have many others, each of which I am happy to provide as the situation warrants.

I Think I Can Can Ride for 100 Miles on My Rollers
That was an incredibly long-winded introduction (what’s new?) to my main point: I think I could ride a century on these rollers.

Yes, that’s right. I think I could, in one session, ride 100 miles on these rollers.

And I’m going to try, this Saturday. It should take about six hours.

I Do Not Expect You To Believe Me
I am probably not the first person to attempt to ride rollers for 100 miles, but those of you who have ridden indoors and have nearly lost your mind after 45 minutes know that this is no minor thing I am going to try.

I would go so far, in fact, to expect that most of you will not believe that I can do it.

So Bet Me
So here’s what I’d like to do: I would like to bet anyone and everyone that I can ride 100 miles on my rollers this Saturday.

I don’t want the bet to be idle, however. You — and I — are going to need to put our money where our mouths are. And in doing so, we’re going to make some money for the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

Here’s how it will work:

  1. Send me an email telling me the amount of money you are willing to bet that I will not be able to ride 100 miles on my rollers this Saturday.
  2. If I succeed: you must send the amount of money you promised to the Lance Armstrong Foundation.
  3. If I fail: Then I will send that amount of money to the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

So, if 100 of you each bet me $25.00 and I succeed, you’d each send in your $25.00. If I fail, I’d have to donate $2500 to the LAF.

Either way, a very good cause benefits.

You may also, if you like, bet for me — how much money you will donate if I succeed. That’s your call.

Caveats and Whatnot
I am going to do this century on rollers honestly. I’m not going to take any hour-long breaks, I’m not going to put the rollers in my car and drive around for 100 miles. I’m not going to tell my odometer that my wheel circumference is ten yards.

I’m going to ride 100 miles pretty much continuously, taking short breaks to eat, refill water bottles, and change DVDs (I plan to watch Deadwood, Season 1, which a number of people have told me is fantastic.

So bet me. If you’re not afraid.

Update: So far, I’ve got $340 $480 $625 $880 $1020 in bets against me. Thanks! (And I really mean the "thanks" — I know you’re really doing the bets because it’s a good cause, not because the bet means anything.)

    I don’t think this is impossible. I’ve frequently spent 3 hours on a trainer without the advantage of the risk of public humiliation if I were to stop. I’ll have to consider my bet…

  2. Comment by Bobby | 01.8.2008 | 11:14 am

    So…Success or failure determines who gets the tax write-off?

  3. Comment by woogie | 01.8.2008 | 11:19 am

    I hate rollers, I can ride them, but they are just so boring even with a good DVD.

    So based on my experience with rollers, I think that any miles you put in are hard won.

    I’ll donate $1 per mile whether you make the whole 100 miles or not.

  4. Comment by fatty | 01.8.2008 | 11:29 am

    bobby – yep, success or failure determines who gets the tax writeoff. of course, i am a little more exposed than everyone, since each individual bets against just one person (me), but I am betting against everyone. Furthermore, the bet is more dangerous for me, since I am not setting the amount.

    i only ask that nobody bet an amount larger than they intend to honor.

    bigboned – seriously, you frequently spend 3 hours on a trainer? i’ve never been able to spend more than 2 hours on a trainer.

  5. Comment by Anonymous | 01.8.2008 | 11:30 am

    hmm… aren’t you in sort of a precarious position here? I mean, if 100 people bet for you and 100 people bet against you at $25 each, you’re laying out $2500 on Saturday night either way. While it’s for a good cause, did you consider that angle?

  6. Comment by Anonymous | 01.8.2008 | 11:34 am

    Oh, nevermind, I see how your legalese works, now. A bet either for you or against you results in the bettor making the donation if you complete the century. Heads LAF wins, tails cancer loses. I like it.

  7. Comment by Ethan | 01.8.2008 | 11:44 am

    I’ll “bet” $25.

    Frankly, 100 miles on the rollers is like riding 500 miles on the road. Except that it’s WAY MORE BORING. Good luck!

    Before I decide my bet amount, will your bib shorts be on inside out?

    Deadwood is a great show, if a certain sexual referance doesn’t bother you. They say it in such an artistic way. I would have been banned if I had published my first draft of this post. Gotta keep it clean.
    Good luck on your epic quest.

    I am assuming that you have already looked at your local weather forecast to make sure that all your friends won’t be out riding in unseasonably nice weather while you are doing this.

    I need time to think. $25 either way – I just have to figure out how crazy I think you are. Also what tension setting will you have your rollers on for this century.

  11. Comment by bikemike | 01.8.2008 | 12:11 pm

    are you going to be using the mountain bike shoe and pedal on your road bike, like in the picture?
    how about doing it with the single speed?

    i’ll bet you don’t.

  12. Comment by joel | 01.8.2008 | 12:13 pm

    I haven’t tried rollers (mine are waiting at USPS for me to pick them up on my way home from work) but I’ve been playing on my trainer lately and I second woogie’s comment on the boringness. I’ll also second the donation of $1/mile ridden to give you the added incentive to do them all ;-)

  13. Comment by fatty | 01.8.2008 | 12:14 pm

    timk – great question! i will be setting my resistance setting to 0 for the ride. I will use higher gears for resistance on this ride. if i set resistance on the rollers, it would be like CLIMBING on the rollers for 100 miles. frankly, i just don’t think i have that in me.

  14. Comment by fatty | 01.8.2008 | 12:20 pm

    bikemike – doing it on the ss is an intriguing idea, but i think this is already plenty difficult. you can do it that way to 1-up me, ok?

    If anything can get you through, the awesomeness that is Deadwood can. 6 hours will fly by like *this* (that was a finger snap.) BUT – make sure the children are far far out of earshot. This is profanity like you have never known profanity. I’ll email you with my bet.

  18. Comment by gian | 01.8.2008 | 1:20 pm

    Gillian is right. My girlfriend and I played a drinking game based on the usage of curse workds, double for C***Suc***, and we had to quit after 10 minutes for 2 reasons.

    we were getting too drunk too quick(and I can more that hold my own)

    we spent too much time refilling our drinks so that when the glass was full again we “owed” several drinks.

    yes, keep the kids, small dogs, faint of heart, easily offended far away.

    If you were really cool you would get someone there to offer a streaming video feed of the event. Maybe some Phil and Bob commentary to go along with it. Of course with Dead Wood Cork Soakers in the background that might not be safe.

  23. Comment by Melvin | 01.8.2008 | 2:11 pm

    Speaking as someone who’s done centuries on a trainer, I offer two tips: 1) Use a floor fan and 2) lube up the chamois. Without the wind as you zip along sweat soon soaks the shorts, leading to extreme chafe in the nether regions. A fan will help, but six hours at a good clip will still leave you riding in a little salty pool. Good luck!

  24. Comment by Big Bird | 01.8.2008 | 2:25 pm

    Holy crap! I’ll be doing a century on my Inside Ride rollers this Saturday, too (unless the weather is good, in which case I’ll be riding around Utah Lake). But I plan to do it in 5 hours, and I’ll be watching Deadwood season 2. I already watched season 1 during my last training block.

  25. Comment by Big Boned | 01.8.2008 | 3:03 pm

    Yup, more often than I’d like to remember. What got me started doing that was preparing for a solo 24 while deployed in the Army to a place I couldn’t ride anything other than my trainer. I normally set up with a tv, dvd, stereo and ipod. Change what I’m watching/listening to when I get bored. I also set up where I can watch people (as they watch me).
    I’ve decided I’m not having you lay any money out either way. I’ll donate $25 if you fail, $50 if you do it.
    I plan on going mountain biking Saturday, I’ll send some Karma your way. I still owe you tires too from B7. You are as bad at COLLECTING as you are sending out prizes from your contests. When you going to pick some and let me know where to send them. I’ve bugged you about it a couple of times here without result. I think after 1 year, I’ve got “squatter’s rights” on ‘em.

    But can you do it wearing your bib inside out?

  27. Comment by fatty | 01.8.2008 | 3:32 pm

    fishbutt – no way. i cringe at the thought. and i cry a little bit, too.

    bigbird – are you serious? you were planning on doing a century on rollers, on the same day, in the same county, on the same kind of rollers, while watching the same show? that is spooky.

    melvin – floor fan, check.

    big boned – good advice, i’ll have an ipod on hand in case i get tired of dvd-watching.

  28. Comment by IndoorRolyPoly | 01.8.2008 | 3:45 pm

    so, I guess you can drink a gallon a milk in an hour…..

    I’m totally jealous, those rollers are the cats meow! I love my rollers, but after seeing those I don’t even want to get on mine anymore!

    I guess I know what I’m spending my bonus on.

  29. Comment by fatcat1111 | 01.8.2008 | 4:39 pm

    How do you watch a movie while on rollers? I’ve tried this, but the rollers are so loud (at least above any speed that allows me to not fall) but can’t hear the tv unless I crank it up to uncomfortable levels.

  32. Comment by BotchedExperiment | 01.8.2008 | 5:30 pm

    You’re going to need 5 pair of ear plugs and an ice pick.

    The ear plugs are for the other members of your family. Deadwood has the most pervasive bad language of any show or movie ever.

    The ice pick is so you can jab it into your leg to distract you from the boredom.

  33. Comment by Miguel | 01.8.2008 | 6:08 pm

    Those things are sweet! Oh man, I like them a lot. So, in truth did you pay retail for them? They look super cool. Where did you get them from? I cannot afford anything like that but they still look neat! My super cheapo rollers are crying in the corner becouse of your sweet awesome looking rollers! Hope it all goes well on Saturday…. make sure to put your bibs on the right way this round! Hope that Susan is doing well. You guys are in my thoughts!

  34. Comment by David | 01.8.2008 | 6:28 pm

    I’ve got $25 dollars with Lance Armstrong’s name on it that says you can’t do it, even though “Deadwood” will help so much that it’s not even fair.

  35. Comment by UltraRob | 01.8.2008 | 7:07 pm

    Several years ago I did 5 hours on the trainer. I don’t think I’ve gone over 2 hours since then. A couple weeks ago 2 guys in Vermont did 114 hours on spinning bikes to set a new Guinness Record. The rules allow a 5 minute break for every hour of riding which they saved up to take short naps.

  37. Comment by DNAtsol | 01.8.2008 | 7:27 pm

    Too get away from the bet for a sec (and fan of susan and I will very likely add our contribution fer er agin FC soon), on the actual roller purchase/use argument, I saw a similar if not the same model at my LBS and frankly I had quite a different reaction than Fatty. I have both a trainer and rollers (very basic on both accounts) and I’ve come to the conclusion (albeit I am not by any means an experienced or even close to an experienced rider) that each offers something I cannot get from the other. I can really learn bike handling skills on the rollers and can get endurance/hardcore interval training on my rear wheel trainer.

    I think that if you can ride rollers with no threat of instant death or patio door explosion why bother? For me, the fun and feeling of accomplishment comes from mastering my rollers (which I have not).

    So, before everyone jumps and lusts after the cool new rollers, please keep in mind that while these rollers might be great for Fatty because he is really good and an experienced bike rider (no offense intended FC :) ), I wanted to plug a little but for the pathetic, plumper enthusiast who doing well on one of these rollers is less impressive than conquering basic rollers. The day I can ride an hour on my killer, death defying rollers of death will be my greatest ride :)

    go fatty! get that century — metric, imperial, or american standard ?

    Upon hearing of your 100 mile roller challenge, a few celebrities wanted to wish you well:

    Hugo Chavez: Senior Gordo es loco!

    Yoda: Strong with the cycling force are you. Much suffering your future holds.

    Lance Armstrong: I’d rather train to win a Tour de France than do 100 miles on rollers!

    Sheryl Crow: I hope you die, Fatty! All you cyclists are *!@#!

    President Bush: We will find you, Fat Cyclist, and confiscate your rollers. The war on Drugs will be won!

    Marie Osmond: He’s going to do what?

  39. Comment by Kris | 01.8.2008 | 8:15 pm

    You should do the live video! Jeff Kerkove did it for a 2.5 hour roller session back in December. I’ve asked him what service/software/etc. he used and will get back to you. I’ve got a webcam you can borrow and I’d be happy to stop by and commentator (aka make snide remarks while you suffer).

    I was laughing so hard at the idea of a tiny Elden balanced on top of 10 yd wide wheels, I had tears rolling down my face and Bob had to pause Flight of the Conchord until I stopped. Thanks for the great laugh. And put me down for $25 that you are crazy enough to do it.

  43. Comment by Big Mike In Oz | 01.8.2008 | 10:14 pm

    Fatty, I also bought (oops, Angela bought) a set of “Christmas” rollers for a price similar to my nephew’s first car. As a trackie I had considered rollers a warm up device. The only training I ever did on them was for pure leg speed but these new ones emit the siren song and the weather’s been a bitch here lately. I’ve got an open track carnival Saturday night and a club criterium Sunday. If the weather disturbs my plans I’m going to lock myself in my cave with a couple of DVDs and race you to 100 miles.

    Depressing weather demands light and breezy movies so I’ll watch Ferris Bueller and Say Anything. As a trackie I’m obliged to ride the rollers on my track bike. It’s set up for the race carnival with 48×14 so I expect around 4 hours. I won’t waste the saddle time – every 30 minutes I’ll do 1 minute at over 150rpm recorded on a second computer.

    The bet is… if I don’t race, my 160km on the rollers will beat you by 1 hour. If I race, you have to beat 5 hours pedalling. I’ll send video of the computer outcomes including HRM to verify.

    Sign me up for US$50.

  47. Comment by Den | 01.9.2008 | 5:52 am

    Good luck!

    I loved the first season of Deadwood. But I must warn you, make sure your kids aren’t around while you’re watching. The language is exceptionally harsh…and this coming from an ex-navy man. It’s still a great show though.

    Enjoy and try not to go nuts!

  48. Comment by Lowrydr | 01.9.2008 | 7:11 am

    Hey Fatty, doesn’t that little stunt cam work like an on-line cam too? I bought one after seeing it on the blog. And I can’t even find mine now. It’s got to be in the garage somewhere. But I was sure it would work with the computer for live action.

    Good luck on the epic try this week-end. There is a group of riders that get together here in the mall and have a roller race in the cold weather.

    Best to Susan and the gang while they abandon you to the ride. Well best to them anyway weather they stick around or not.

    I’ve done 5+ hours on a spin bike while training for endurance events in the winter, so I think 100 miles (6 hours) is very doable. Music is a MUST.

  52. Comment by hellkitty | 01.9.2008 | 9:46 am

    I want your rollers! Much better than the jury-rigged vinyl Trashbar rollers I used to use.

    You might want to use wireless headphones for the TV so that you don’t have to turn it up to STADIUM LOUD to hear it.

    Put me down for a $25. You probably will succeed though…unless your bib’s inside out again.

  53. Comment by Mild Bill | 01.9.2008 | 12:26 pm

    Six hours non-stop pedaling is an invitation for all types of groin-related discomfort even without your recent chafe issues. I predict the manroot may just wilt and fall off by the time you hit episode 4. Good luck and lay on a thick dose of Butt Butt’r, Petroleum Jelly, or greasy salve of your choice!

    Mind Vitamin: If you do 10 centuries does that mean you’ve done a millenium?

  54. Comment by joliver3 | 01.9.2008 | 6:47 pm

    Within the last two weeks, I just saw a link to a website (probably the manufacturer’s) with video clips of those rollers in action. Very cool. I ride a set of Performance rollers with a magnetic resistance unit, and 45 minutes is about all I can stand.

    Based on what I’ve seen on this site over the last couple of years, I’m sure you’ll complete the 100 miles. To help with the motivation, I’ll pony up $0.50/mile up to $50/100 miles. To further help with the motivation, and to make this more of a “bet”, how about you kick in $0.50 for every mile you fall short of 100? So the LAF gets $50 no matter what, and the further you ride, the more I pay.

  56. Comment by Sk8rAl | 01.10.2008 | 11:34 am

    I’ll bet you $25 – you’ll get an “official” email as well.

    But, just as importantly, a comment on your DVD viewing choice…

    Deadwood is great. My boyfriend liked it right off the bat. It took a bit for me to warm up to it, but it’s great. My only hesitation is in the context of being on the rollers. The dialogue is complicated – at least for me, it requires quite a bit of concentration. When I’m on the trainer, I don’t usually want to use that much brain power, or I’ll loose focus on my pace/candence.

    A recommendation… “Alias.” It’s by no means intellectual, but it’s interesting enough to keep your attention and is a lot of fun. Plus lots of action and noise and spy intrigue and fun people and constumes for visual stimulation. Most episodes end with a cliff-hanger to keep your interest piqued (I would often plan to watch one episode and would end up watching every episode on the disc cuz they hooked me so bad at the end of each episode). I often watched while on the trainer, and they made the time fly by. Start with the first season, as a story runs throughout and the intesity fades a bit in later seasons.

    My two cents.

    I’ll be riding “with” you for at least an hour on Saturday in my own basement.

    With a webcam and your computer you can stream your live video to the public through Ustream.tv

And, thank you for taking away any remaining excuse to not do a century a month – even if it is inside….on rollers!

You can do this by making the donation amount you promised to the Lance Armstrong Foundation — around $1200 in donations, altogether, so I guess doing this wasn’t entirely idiotic. Anyway, Click here to get started with making your donation.
