trail jack

Post by Mick » Sat Sep 22, 2012 7:25 pm

Ok so i thought it would be a good idea, to be prepared in the event of a flat to be able to change it.
I did some searching to see what others have done and i figured a light weight trail jack would be the go. However in practice i have run into a slight hitch, I cannot seem to get the front tire off the ground i am guessing its a technique thing but it always seem to be the back wheel that get lifted no matter where i am lifting from.

I have just laid the bike on it's side for 30 years and never had a problem.
Even at home I do the same :D

You need to move the jack or put ballast on the back.

Putting it under a foot peg will lift the back, somewhere forward of that should lift the front.

Or just dump it in an untidy heap :wink:
