Any tricks for safely cleaning the tire black off of the plastic rollers? Or do you leave the tire black as a badge of effort?

Hi

To clean it, use simply some alcohol.
We suggest to use slick and hard tires to minimize the consumption ;)

Of course grappa!

Tried the alcohol but really doesn't remove the dark smudge. Tires are old Bontrager road tires. I think the smudges are when I roll to the edge on the front roller and the back tire slips in the rollers. Not often but enough in any one ride.

Guess with over 1400 miles on trainer, it is expected to show this badge.

Not good. Probably, you should have cleaned it after every ride.
Well, as you told before.... badge of effort! :mrgreen:

Hi,

I also have a problem with the black building ono the roller surface.
I am using a trainer tyre though, which is supposed to have a harder compund. The black on the roller is creating an artificial surface. How do I clean it off?
Surely there has to be a way.
