Thanks.  Already have spools on there.

Hope this helps.

Ok, ordered the Pit Bull rear from Revzilla today.  I'll have it in a week and service the chain then.  I got this bike so cheap, that I shouldn't complain about having to buy new tools to service it.  Not sure if I'm ready for DIY tire replacement yet, but I've been thinking about it.

I wouldn't risk it. You could damaged your bike....or worse , injure yourself. Get a stand. If you feel you REALLY cant wait to lube your chain, Zombie's solution is the way to go.

I totally disagree with you, surely he could injure himself....or worse, damage the bike!!  :008: :008: :008:

How much did you get it for if you don't mind me asking. You can PM me if you want.

$149 shipped.  There's a used one on Craigslist for $75, but it's a four hour round trip drive.

Wow.  Revzilla must quite the drop shipping network.  I think they're based in Philadelphia.  I'm in Phoenix and my Pit Bull stand just arrived minutes ago and the package was marked "ground shipping."  Wow.
