A friend of mine has a front stand that I can used in order to change out my front tire. I haven't seen it but it lifts from the bottom of the front forks...so he says. Any thing I need to know up front to ensure it will work? Also my new rear tire is a Dunlop Roadsport 2, but I was thinking about ordering a Micheln for the front. Any suggestions or comments? The last set of Micheln's that I had for a prior bike I was able to spoon them on, but the Dunlop I had to take to a shop.
