Tire change - supporting front fork
I am about ready to change tires and can't wait! Going to the Michelin Road 5's. I have spools and track stand for the rear that I have been using almost since day one, so no problem on the rear. Also going to 44 tooth rear sprocket.
I have no way to get the front forks off the ground. Other than buying a front track stand which I really don't want to do, any ideas to safely change out the front tire?
Can the bike be safely supported by a hydraulic floor jack, which I have, from the center of the bike without damage?
Thanks so much! Ride safe.
