comment Aluminium training rollers - seeking feedback on brands
@Kibbee: I have been riding when the 'cable' snapped. The front roller slowly 'winds down' as it is not being driven. The rear two keep rolling via your wheel. You have plenty of time to stop safely before you lose balance. If things get tangled (HIGHLY unlikely in the first place,) I can't imagine it would come to a quick stop--the cables are actually rubber, and have some give to them. They'd like just get wrapped up or snap apart without causing a crash.

comment Why do racing cyclists wobble when furiously pedalling?
To follow up on what Daniel said - being able to use your full body weight in a sprint has its advantages, and that's one reason they shift the bike back and forth under them--to 'throw' their body weight down on alternate legs.

If the bike jumps off the rollers, you tip over. You DON'T go shooting forward through the wall or into the TV. You just tip over. It can hurt of course, but generally it's just embarrassing...

comment What is a simple mnemonic for remembering the thread direction when removing pedals?
Exactly. You just need to know that the left is 'backwards' and you are set. No mnemonic required!

comment How do I use the plastic backing on patches?
It's a question I've asked myself! I don't know the answer, but I always leave the plastic on, and have had no problems!
