Back in on topic times we would ride rollers in the winter in the baseme nt of the bike shop. Very low humidity. One guy with longer straight hai r would get the Van Der Graaf Generator thing going with his hair.

I used it in our basement on a set of steel-drummed rollers. For some
reason that set-up would often create a big static charge which would
suddenly discharge in a blue-white arc between the front roller and the
basement floor. The loud "CRACK" would send the dog and cats scurrying in all directions. It reminded me of one of those sparking machines fr om the laboratory scene in the original "Frankenstein" movie.
