Front wheel removal?
Ok, I'm a amateur mechanic, What experience has anyone had removing the front wheel. I have the race stands from T-Rex and purchased the large hex for the axle. However what a pain this has been, I thought I could save money on my new tires by removing the wheels myself. The race stand does not work once the axle is removed because it appears the the two blades of the fork do not have the same rebound because only one fork side sits into the stand cradle. Looks like I am going to have to purchase a come-along, because my tie down straps are not adequate to hold the bike up.
any suggestions, more complicated than I anticipated!!!
