Yeahhhhh, could've avoided a torn hammy with one of those. But, then I would have missed all that fun. Good post!

That is very interesting, to be filed away for future (hopefully unneeded). I watched a 110-pound woman nicknamed Skert do many of these demos, and her first rule for lifting a fallen bike is to ask for help.

I would also add that a velcro tie strap should be in everybody's toolkit. With it, you can strap the front brake to the throttle grip, avoiding any wheel movement.


Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.
