Straight out of the box, the Kreitler requires a bit of assembly. However, the process is relatively simple and it only took us about 15 minutes to get everything set up and ready to go.
You’ll also have to put a bit of time into getting used to the system since the Kreitler’s rollers aren’t parabolic, so the whole riding experience takes a bit more balance and concentration.
The alloy drums are aesthetically very pleasing and give a smooth and quiet ride. The whole unit is simple and basic, but perfectly adequate for the price.
Lack of training feedback could be remedied with a rear-mounted computer, but you have to question if rollers are the ideal home training solution.
