Cheers for the response - how do you do one leg at a time - do you have to take the front tire off?

Would a rear end pitbull lift work as a bike stablizer?

Measure the fork tube protrusion at the top, and then add the measurement of the amount that you intend to lower it.

Then, do one leg at a time. Loosen each bolt just enough to slide the fork tube to the desired length, and then tighten it back.
