W.T.Borrow Bike Stands Aurora/Naperville

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey Guys,

I got a nail in my rear tire so I ordered up some rubbah but I dont have any bike stands and I just ordered spools so I was hoping someone could lend me some stands so I could remove my wheels so I can get the new rubber mounted.


I live near Eola and Ogden.


Thnx!

sweet, thanks man, You and a bud are on my list for my next fox n hound party.

Anyone have another I could use for the front?

I got a nail in the rear so I am swapping out the rear and the front at the same time.
I didnt want to run on stock dunlop fronts with sticky pilot power rears.

Same here, but I will be running mismatched tires. Qualifier in the front and Pilot Power on the rear. The front has plenty of tread on it and is a good tire, so no need to swap it. BTW, did your tires come yet, that place hasn't let me down ever with shipping speed.

Your welcome to use mine as long as you return it promptly when youre done, and you have to pick it up in oswego (maybe 10 minutes from your house)

should arrive fri hopefully!

I cant wait to feel what grip is like!!! I felt like ice somewhat on those tires I would dig in my ass on corners to squat em a bit for that extra cohesion.

How many do you have Kegger? 1 or 2 because if you have two would be easier to return both to one guy rather driving to two diff spots but ill do what has to be done to get everything finished! and your very close most likely which is conveinant and yes I would get them back to you asap, I believe in having the things I need when I need them and not trying to remember who I loaned them to.

I have the new front fender ready to mount and talking to las vegas charlies to see if they will labor match this guy in barlett so I wont have to drive out.

heh, I just read an article about scrubbing new tires, now im going to have to find it again and re-read it.

Pay to mount the front fender? Do it your self your gonna have the front wheel off anyway. Hell, if you want we can just do it at my house, and you can leave the bike on the stands in my garage until you rubber is mounted. Just pretend like your an old friend (even though weve never met) and my wife should be cool with it (she doesnt like how I bring strays to the house ). If you want though, I have both stands and your welcome to borrow them.

I'm not sure what scrubbing means and we might be on the same page here, but when those tires come fresh, they're going to have the mold release compound still on the tire. This is very slick and you need to take it easy on the tires for a couple hundred miles before you really tear into them. Using Goo Gone helps clean that stuff off but be careful until you're situated.

It isn't necessary to wait a couple hundered miles, I have scrubbed mine in in 50 miles and had no problems. I did this with my current set of Pilots, and rode in the mountains the same day. Either way, you still want to make sure that ruff up that new rubber before leaning it way over. Smart Drug you are correct it is slippery stuff.

yea, thanks for the heads up on the slippery, thats what the article was about and suggestions on how to scrub em in. 200 miles, like two days of work for me. heh. a

pay to mount the fender!? ehk!
Nah, I was just saying while it was off I could replace the one I have since I know ya really cant get it off without the wheel off. I just made the "Lowes-Axle Removal Tool" for three bucks.

Bikes Dead! the nail really got it good, so the tires actually Flat.
But thanks for the offer, you sound like me n the wife, she stopped asking where i met them and replaced the question with, "what forum are they from?"
But yes, I would love to borrow your stands! the tires are supposed to arrive on fri hopefully with my swingarm spools.

Does your wife like to ride with you? reason I ask is because I ride with another couple quite a bit, (AnotherBend and his Fiance) and theres always invitation for a fun cruise with another couple


But I still got you guys beat, when I used to live with my mother I used to be the community garage, she started buying food in bulk and making huge ass dinners for the extra people that would float in. When I moved out her food costs went down to a 1/6th of her normal.
