Electricity build up with quick motion

Postby Jerome » Wed Dec 26, 2018 1:44 pm

Hi !

I got a set of Quick Motion rollers for Xmas which I tried this morning. After a few minutes I managed to ride them with both hands, so it is not as difficult as I was expecting, but I have a problem with static electricity building up while riding and everytime I touch the metal garage door I get a chock.

I was thinking about buying an antistatic wrist band to earth myself. Will it work ?

Cheers
Jay

How bad is the shock? If you wire your bike or wrist to the aluminum door, it will provide a circuit to continuously discharge .

Humidify the room a little (this should help).
Also try changing your clothes and the tire ;)

Hello !

Thanks for your help. I got myself a cheap antistatic wristband and the problem is solved.

Cheers?
