One huge disadvantage to rollers is how loud they are. I, however, didn’t really notice the Quick Motion at all. I had to turn the TV up one or two clicks, but the majority of the noise was absorbed by the frame. It definitely won’t cause problems with the neighbours. Of course, the lack of noise cannot be compared to a direct drive trainer. Maybe riding a slick tyre like the Michelin Competition, instead of the Continental GP4000 S II which has some tread, would quiet it down even further. I felt that the vibrations that occurred were much less than with a basic trainer.
