Product description from website:
"Experience the balance, cadence, and exercise of riding with this innovative indoor stationary stand. The Galaxia is our most advanced resistance roller bike trainer, giving you a realistic cycling experience that is safer and more stable than comparable rollers. Heavy-duty rollers taper toward the middle to keep your wheels naturally centered on the system. The Galaxia’s patented swing mechanism absorbs both forward and backward acceleration, keeping you from derailing when slowing down or speeding up. This makes for easier sprinting, standing, and gear changes, allowing you to stretch your legs and change positions during your ride. Additionally, the front roller rotates at the same speed as the rear — giving you increased stability from your spinning wheels."

Reason I'm selling it:
This is a training system for moderate-to-experienced riders with strong balance. I bought this as a non-experienced rider and realized I did not have the strength to balance on the rollers properly without having to use a wall to lean against. If you have a space where you can put the rollers next to a wall for balance as you learn to ride the rollers, novice riders can probably get used to riding on these in a week or two. I don't have a good place to put these by a wall in my home, so I want to get this to someone who can use it as intended. Nothing is wrong with the rollers, I just am not in a position to use them as intended.

The rollers allow for a smooth ride, and are conical -- they slope toward the middle so you don't ride off the rollers. Purchased brand new for $300 two weeks ago. Seeking $225 cash OBO. Currently listed for $300 on Amazon, with 4.5 star rating by over 400 users.
