Default Re: kick-starting

Allow me to deposit my .02 pesos on kick starting with pedals.

If you have raised or have a decent compression ratio, this can be a tough nut at best.

If it's cold this can be a tough nut.

For the above two reasons I can't do it, when I first bring the bike out.

As for the hoop kick stand, sure I can run it on the stand, but no way am I starting it on the stand - just too much force for ball comfort. I bought my hoop stand from Spooky Tooth - is it the same hoop stand???
