Greetings from Quarterfront
I've come to this forum looking for an answer to one question and honestly probably won't hang around much after that. Then again, who knows....
Anyway, I'm a 41 year old guy who used to ride everywhere all the time. Didn't have a car and I commuted to and from work, did all my grocery shopping, you name it, on my bike. Really aggressive/defensive rider in city traffic, all of that. Got into my mid '30's, married, had kids, moved farther from work, and realized that having not fallen off my bike or been hit by a car in 12 years the odds weren't in my favor any longer so I stopped riding.
After a few years of not riding at all, I've dusted off my old faithful Austro-Daimler (bought back in 1985 with the best money I ever spent), attached it to a training stand and use it as a stationary bike to keep in shape.
Lately I'm having trouble with blown tires using the trainer and am looking for some clues as to why. If you're reading this and have some enlightenment for me, look for my post in the repair forum.
