“How to use”

 1. The cycle vise must be assembled.

  • Install the tire stop to its default setting of 1 3/4” from face of stop bar to face of bracket. You can fine tune it later if you want to.

  • The tire stops main function is to keep the bike from rolling through the vise.

  • The tire stops second function is to create a stop to tie down against.

  • All the mounting hardware only needs to be snug-tight do not over tighten.

 2. Locate a stable solid surface.

 3. Measure the width of the tire and set the jaw width the same.

 4. Check for clearances such as fenders, exhaust etc.

 5. Roll the bike into the vise up to the tire stop. The bike should load smoothly. If you are trying to force it to go, the jaws are too tight. If the jaws are too loose, not a problem, just slid the tire down the fixed jaw. Then step off to adjust.

 6. Step off the bike on the same side as the screw assembly. Hold onto the bike while reaching down to tighten the jaws. It should only take 12 – 14 cranks (I’m not talking full turns) to provide enough clamping pressure.  It is important to note here that the lip on the tire, where the tread starts, is in full contact with the entire surface of the jaws. If it is not you are in too far or not far enough.

 7. Check the stabilizer bar to see that it is in contact with the working surface. If there is a crown in the working surface adjust the screws at either end until they come in contact with the surface. It does not take a lot of pressure; you are only trying to remove the clearance between the bar and the surface.

 8. Whether you tie the bike down will be at your discretion. The vise has been used free standing without tying down; even free standing without the stabilizer bar at all. You need to use your own good judgment relating to the work at hand. We recommend that you always use safe work practices.
