Hi fellow forum fan’s! I’m seeking advice from those of you who service your bike chains while using a center stand, lift, or other device… I have found a way to lift my bike, unorthodox as it might be, by lashing it to the garage wall and using a scissors jack lifting just below where the center stand would normally be. All appears quite safe and I have a half inch or so clearance under the tire and the chain lies loose so to speak. What I'm puzzled about is that the rear wheel does not freely move? I turned on the key which indicates the bike is in neutral. Now I do have the front tire choked with blocks and also have the brake engaged and this raises another question. Does having the brake on affect just the front tire/wheel, or the drive train itself? I’m turning 68 this month and servicing the chain as I'm trying to do would reduce a lot of hopping on, hopping off if you know what I’m talking about. Thank you for allowing me to share my dilemma, and I sure do appreciate any ideas, comments, or advice you may have! I'm aware of the safety precautions having a 500 lb. bike even just 1/2 inch off the ground in the rear, but please know I am totally focussed, trying to be safe as I possibly can, and would use something safer (and more expensive) if I could afford it. Thank you again. Peter the Penguin, Kalispell MT.
