Sounds too simple
Well that's a lot different than my stand.
First I pick up the bike by the back frame,
sliding the spool lift over with my foot.
Then I get out the allen wrench and set
the forks to about the right width, while
continuing to hold the bike up and level.
Now install the spools right in the lift
and screw them home. Once tight and
you confirm that the stand is adjusted
properly, remove the spools and apply
some Locktite to the threads. Be careful
not to drop the bike (you did chock the
front wheel, right?). Once the spools
are reinstalled and torqued to the proper
torque with a calibrated torque wrench,
then simply lower the rear of the bike
onto the stand! If you have a friend,
he can take pictures of the operation
and download them to your laptop for
viewing before you lower the bike, saving
you the trouble of lifting it again. Easy!
