Another newb question from me - do i really need a riser block for front wheel when using a turbo, as its in my garage wont a block of wood do the same job ? yes i am really that tight
Other than to hold the front wheel steady no, i ust use the yellow pages under mine.
Ride the rollers and you won't need any such dubious publications. Much less boring and good for developing bike handling skills to boot.....maybe not for you M..eldy though.
Our yellow pages isn't very thick so I use that and an old trainer to wedge the front wheel in to.
fat buddha wrote (see)but - a proper riser block is best as it's shaped to hold the wheel and doesn't slip around on the floor as much as many have rubber pads on the underside for grip. doesn't cost a lot in reality

FB im on my way to piratedom and any thoughts of spending more money and on stuff i dont need should be squashed. i could get 9 bottles of Kopparberg pear cider for the cost of a riser block
looks like ill have a use for last years runners world mags then
has Meldy really feel off a turbo - i thought was just folklore

Thats just made me smile and remember why your both sound folks.
im afraid the most impressive book i own is probably Statistics WITHOUT Maths for Psychology or SPSS for windows both boring as hell ,
hey, dont diss the pear cider, lovely stuff , i actually used to drink single malts, until i took up tri still have a nice collection af around 40 odd bottles which should see me through the winter though. Real Ale i can do - I'm a Bateman so those of you CAMRA peeps will know what i mean and i live just down from the brewery, but dont get freebies .
