Re: [ST] ouch

> I Brilliantly managed to drop my one week old bike.

Arrrrgghhhhhhhh........ :O(

That was unlucky Mark and an easy mistake to make.
I always instruct my trainees to keep the brake applied as they dismount and
then to pull the bike backwards onto the stand to ensure it's fully engaged.

If there's a hill then put it in gear and make sure that all the play in the
transmission is taken up before deploying the stand.

Mind you, neither of those good habits prevented me dropping my bike when I
tripped over the cat. Damn did I feel foolish. (Rhetorical question!)

FWIW, for that repair bill you could make a decent dent in a custom paint
job :O)
