Am going to get the front tire replaced at only 7500 miles. Tire just showed up at my door 5 minutes ago. Need to remove the wheel. Planning on taking pics and maybe doing a DIY article.
Only question is, without having a wheel lift, if I want to do this solo, on what to use to hold the rear of the bike down to get the front wheel up to pull the axle and roll out the wheel?
Is it neccesary to pull the calipers? Have a home made tool to remove the axle itself.
I want to do this tonight, so am a little time-critical. If I can't find a safe way to do this, I'll use the buddy system.
