Put the bike into top gear and hold the back brake on.

 Saw a bloke put a broom handle through the spokes to stop the wheel turning *eek*, f'ed two and bent two spokes. *work*

Me too Musky, until the last (Hernia repair tearing episode) - now I have  a good clutch locking tool.
Rattle guns ( we call them air guns) are good, they have been known to be less than kind to fine threads tho

A good air gun (= air riffle down here) has a few settings. Go up the settings till it strips then back off one *eek*.

was thinking more of the speed Musky.

Stainless threads even lubed will gaul if turned really fast

Be a good lad and don't ask me how I know
