Don't look down. Work on high cadence intervals to improve your balance and spin. Just use your road bike. The speed/effort ratio will be out of whack on the computer. Normally I ride around 18 mph but on the rollers the same perceived effort gets me to 21 mph. Keep that in mind. If you want more resistance, shift. If you have run out of gear and still don't have enough resistance for smooth 120 rpm intervals then you are Superman. Congratulations.
