help to solve a problem please

Post by gland » Sat Aug 20, 2016 4:46 pm

I have just viewed a bungalow that is perfect for accessibility for my disabled wife. The problem is the access to rear garden is down side of house. Its only about 80cm wide and has high fencing one side and wall the other.. I need to get my adventure into back garden where i can have a big workshop for the beast to live in securely..
Anyone found a solution for this guessing need to be able to have front wheel turned full lock to reduce bar width.
any ideas or solutions??.

Front wheel onto a trolley and the bars tied to one side? Other than that patio doors in the front.
The secret of a long life is knowing when its time to go.

I have the same problem at my house....
Hand guards are out for me and i have to replace the bar ends with flush fitting ones. I've also had to move the levers in and reclamp them and i also always have to fold the mirrors in every time i go in & out.
Its a fkn pain, but what can i do.... its either put up with it or move.

The access round the back of my house is a big consideration with every bike i buy.
