    Howdy.

    My dad (74 year old) has a single speed POS bike (something I built from my old parts). He wants something to hold it up so he can pedal when it's raining (lives in Oregon = always rains).

    He's not training for a race/marathon/contest/etc, he just needs light exercise.

    I know nothing about these things except for the high end ones my roadie friends have...

    He'd like to spend around 50-60bucks, I think.

    Thoughts, suggestions, bacon?

    thanks.

    Gotta go ebay for that. There's nothing that I know of in the 50-60 range. Trainers start at at least twice that new.

    I'd go for the bacon.
