    I am curious about the difference other riders experience between their maximum rpm on rollers and on the road.

    I can hit 200rpm on the road, but on the rollers I'm smooth at around 132rpm and then start bouncing precariously around 135rpm. (Even on the road I have noticed that sometimes when doing spin-ups I'll hit a cadence where I'm rough for 15-20 seconds before I smooth out.)

    Anyone have observations or experiences with this?
