    Build trainer w/ junker frame, no wheels?

    Say you find a beat up frame in a dumpster (with or without a fork), or someone is just giving it away. How could you make a stand and some mechanism to provide resistance while you pedal?

    The easy way would be to find a junker fork and some wheels too.

    Get your wife to yell "Get off that piece of crap and help with the washing" when you ride...

    Is that the kind of resistance you meant?
