Onewizard......I got the impression that you were using the rear prop (piece of wood or an old crutch like Eddie) on the front also. I'm looking for something to raise the front if I have a flat while traveling. If you use that on the front, where do you use it.
Perhaps I got the wrong impression in my reading............it happens.
My prop stand works on both the front and rear, if you follow the link to how to thread
, you will see a 1/2 inch stainless bolt by 3.5 inches long, with a stainless fender washer welded on it. The washer takes the place of the spool/ bobbin, the bolt is a exact fit into the right side of the front axle, with about .003 " clearance on each side ( total of .006 to .010 clearance, depending on the bolt manufacturer)
If you have a flat and want to take the front wheel off you are SOL with my prop stand.It is meant for on the bike repairs only!
I carry a tire plunger kit and compressor with me, a lot cheaper than paying for a tow, especially if you have no cell phone coverage, am I going to do 130 KM/HR after, NO , I will keep it just under that
. OK this requires some common sense, I admit to doing my rear Michelin and putting on 1000 KM, went on a gravel road and the plug was pushed into the tire, lesson learned, yes that was when I was only 65, man learned a lot in 2 years, growing up to 67. Hindsight should have had some rubber glue with me, well reality is plugging is strictly to get out of trouble, first chance you should either patch the tire from the inside or replace it, on the front it is replacement only. This information is strictly my view and I don't recommend either way what you should do!
