Default Re: Alternative Spoke Wrench

What's killing me right now is a few months ago, I sat my son's abandoned full suspension mountain bike out at the road with a "free" sign on it. It was a cheapy WalMart special with no front wheel.

I robbed the rear shock and a few other bits from it, but it had a 1 1/8" THREADED suspension fork ! It didn't fit anything I had at the time and the wife was iin "if you haven't used it in the past 2 years, get rid of it" mode. My garage was looking pretty shabby, so I acquiesced.

A stopped machine is like an un-eaten sandwich. It might look really good, but you canít get full enjoyment until you use it like it was meant to be used. So eat your sandwich, and ride your bike!
