Bike Trainers

No.1577851 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Bunch of boomers bought up all the trainers at my local bike shops. Can't even find anything in-stock in Canada let alone on sale or on Kijiji. Anybody have experience with any trainers or especially Chinese ones like pic related?

I took a tumble and bent the left side of my shift housing. It's almost imperceptible but given it's my bike I noticed it off the bat.

I'm assuming there's an easy fix, but it isn't apparent to me. Can someone take pity on me and help me out?

I could not imagine anything worse than being killed in a bike crash. Everything is going smoothly and then suddenly your frame pitches violently and rotates over the front axle. If you're on platform pedals you’re lucky but only momentarily. Your body enters a free fall while the inside of your helmet fills with screams, those in straps or clipped in are thrown around like rag dolls - your head smashing into the ground or the nearest stationary object. The elapsed time makes you realize the handlebars and brakes can not correct the line of travel and it sets in that you’re going to die. During daytime or with a carefully selected StVZO lighting system you are at least granted knowledge of the impact distance. At night without lights it is a complete surprise. You’re stuck in a foam hat and wrapped in a polyester and gore tex sausage casing until the moment you make contact with the thing that will kill you, likely upside down. You know you’re going to die, you just don’t know when. It’s a surprise, like being sniped in the head. Depending on the nature of the accident you could crack your skull against the pavé or you could be dragged under a cage from the vacuum effect of a team car's slipstream and free fall through the windshield or into the wheel well. Any scenario is completely disturbing and unpleasant to think about. I would never wish to experience this in my life.

Public transport and infrastructure in Ukraine

It is my first time posting on this board, as I come to you for interesting and productive discussions.

Are there any Ukrainian anons on this board? What do you think about the current situation with transport and infrastructure? What do you wish was to be implemented / removed, that already exists in West or East? What do you think of Pic related?
