    For safety's sake please fix that. You want the wire to pull on the side of the bolt that will tighten it, you have the lower bolt wired to loosen.


    Have a great trip!!! :clap:clap

    WELL, as is often the case something comes up at the last minute.

    Leaving this Monday and we discover our pool system is losing water rather rapidly...so the only option is drain it and leave it!

    Never I thought I would be doing this two days before leaving.

    Rented a Trash Pump from Home Depot and had it emptied in two hours. Hope it doesn't 'pop' out of the ground, it's a pretty solid area.

    Thanks. You are right. In fact both of the bottoms on each bike are half a turn wrong!

    Give me SOMETHING else to do, as I'm not BUSY at all :eek1
