Important safety tip

Postby Kieran_Burns » Mon Jan 14, 2013 11:53 am

When using the bike stand and fettling a bike fitting with Marathon Winter tyres; do NOT use your hand to slow the wheel down.

Further important safety tip, don't do this on both wheels.

:oops:

Apparently it did. :oops:

Please tell us you didn't hit yourself with your crank arm too? Or if you did, please tell me you have it on video.
Pain hurts much less if its topped off with beating your mates to top of a climb.

Also, when using a bike stand don't stand next to the spinning wheel whilst naked...

Please start camming you fettling. I reckon even GTV would like that one.
Have you ever considered investing in some of these?

Yikes! :shock: ! :shock: !
In my defence I was probably writing mine when that post appeared. I hope Kelsen didn't discover that the difficult (not hard) way.

One obvious place springs to mind. He would have to be RE-E-EALLY into his fettling for it to work though

The ultimate would be to try to do that on a fixed and in panic try to stop it by grabbing the chain.............
