If the rims are steel, yes, definitely. Maybe you can sell the rack and make something out of the fork, like a truing stand for front wheels.

Gorgeous Moto.

What pads? New? Toed in the exact same amount on each side? I like to use an adjustable wrench on the arms. Bend 'em for the win. Demand your fundamental human rights for silence!

Maybe try decaf.

I never lock any of my bikes outside my home. Yes, they are "too nice." I'm either on it, it's beside me, or close-by. And I live car-free.

Which is the Park Tool FR-1.



Normally, you would use a hammer and punch on the lockring. Leaving it on the wheel serves better than a bench vise. You'll want to remove the axle first.
