    Question removing front rim

    I was wondering, how does one remove the front rim off a bike? I mean theres nothing to hold up the bike once the rim is off. Any ideas? ( i also don't have a center stand )

    what kind of bike is it? There's front stands that go under the forks, triple stands that hook into the triples. You can also jack up under the front of the pipe and prop it up on the back tire and kickstand. It often helps to crack all the high torque fasteners first as some of these methods aren't very stable.

    Or a tiedown or rope through a handy overhead rafter and around the upper triple clamp to hang it up with the front off the ground.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.

    I know a really neat levitation trick. It involves Explosives, so you have to work really fast.
