Carbon road bike close to radiator: a problem?

We recently moved and we found a perfect little corner for my indoor trainer gear in our dining room. It is next to an outlet, next to a window, but also close to a radiator (about 0.75–1 m). Is that a problem?

For the frame? Wouldn’t even think twice about it. .

Mine’s been leant up about 12" from a radiator for years now.

For the bike, no.

The extra heat from the radiator is definitively noticable when on the trainer though.

The radiator would need to get to about 400f to hurt the carbon. Other plastics would get soft before the frame does, which you’d see. Unless you can cook on your radiator, I wouldn’t worry about it.


Thanks, I just wanted to be sure. :blush:
