Rental for rehabilitation

Hey, I'm due to have a serious operation on the 12th of November, because of this my balance will be completely messed up so I won't be able to ride my bike.

I'm in absolute desperate need of a turbo trainer or maybe rollers at a push, these will help me regain my balance on the bike to eventually being able to go back out on the open roads.

Can anyone help or have any useful information?


Thanks
D

    Where are you located? I have one in south west London / Cambridge you can have.

    It's old and "dumb" but it works

    I've got a cheap dumb one in the loft too, if you're close to Portsmouth I'd happily help out.

    Hi guys, I'm in the West Midlands :(. I'd be happy to pay the postage though?

    Sure. I'm on holiday just now but let me check I still have it and it's yours (it may even have the dedicated turbo skewer).

    I'll be around 28/10 so will let you know.

    I'm in the West Midlands and I think I have one in a cupboard. I can have a look tomorrow.

    Stick with the turbo to start with as rollers are harder to balance on than actually riding IMHO.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Just FYI.
    Halfords have their basic one (£80) in stock for home delivery.

    As a last resort.
