question about this old picture, how do you prevent the forks or the back from slamming into the ground while removing both wheels? seems like the bike is pretty stable in that picture...

I can answer this one ... Use the pannier as the other two legs to the table.

That pic almost looks like Battley's cycle in MD.

thanks :) the pannier must have the right height (and strength) then or you'll have no luck with that method

Correct. On the Front Steps of Max's BMW in New Hampshire! Good Memories for sure.

Holy Doodle! You been a busy traveling man. Just got home and am checking in (been off the grid since the 27th of Aug.) I just wanted to say I really enjoyed hanging with you up in your playground and am very happy the Bike was a relative easy fix.


All the best to you on your return south........ I, as many, many others, will be following along. .
