Bikes are not obsolete in America. They are extremely popular and probably more popular
today than ever before.
Agree with you , same here , but I do not see many older people on bike here , most are 20-max 50 , and I am trying to find situation with older people , folks above 55

stands before me
Left is right, and right is wrong,
and the mirror reflects a melancholy song.
i the mirror
the babbling brook,
the rippled river
whose images tell harmless lies.
who was once held in the
weak, shivering, hands of a life nearing its end
on broken, crushed bones, crumbs
one thousand shards
the jaded moments of my life.
an unintended semblance in the raging waters
crashing against the killing rocks of the rushing falls.
never utter the curse
"it can't get any worse"
the serpent swallows the swollen cow,
swallowed - the farmer's wife,
swallowed - her son,
swallowed - the thorny toad,
the black widow spider devours them all!
i the empty frame
the bits and bites of carpenter ants.
a perverse facade
what should of been
NEVER utter the curse
"it can't get any worse"
will bring me peace,
will deliver me,
burn my body whole
dig me a deep hole
throw me void of soul
the waters of the screaming ocean
who herself dies a slow painful death.

Unless they are making a living taking online survey and even collecting free bitcoin faucet
Basic income for all it’s not communism. These Fox News only care themselves. They don’t care about the average joe.
Europe is doing much better than America since they are giving away free stuff to help people for survival.
American work to death doesn’t have time with family and friends. All we do work work.

Most important ........................57% of the world's jobs are at risk of being automated. Universal Basic Income may be our only way out.

Have you tried changing the USB cable? You said you'd tried the ports, but not the cable. If it's a thin cable, also make sure it's straight. I have a Seagate that played up for months until I finally discovered it just didn't like it's cable being bent too much.
Did chkdsk actually fail, or did you give up? It can take a VERY long time. If you gave up, rather than chkdsk giving up, try again, but do it overnight while you're asleep.
And you could try mounting it from a Linux live CD. NTFS is fully supported on Linux now, but it didn't work properly for years and years, so it's got a whole bunch of error handling and fault tolerance that Windows doesn't. If you get a live CD of Ubuntu, Knoppix, DamnSmallLinux or something like that and boot from that, you might still be able to mount your drive and backup your files. Whether it mounts in Linux or not, as long as it's detected, fdisk may still be able to fix it. For NTFS and FAT drives, it's not as complete as chkdsk, but it works orders of magnitude faster.
If none of those things work, you're looking at photorec.
