If I've used a torque wrench, then yes.

If they put wheels on forks for the dinner table, how could you pick up food with them? Would you just lick the pie off the spokes?

If you let 10 pounds of air out of your tires would the bike become 20 pounds lighter?

I'll let you know, later. We're having choice of peach or cherry. We may need to control some of the variables such as type of crust, fruit, served warm, a la mode, etc. to have valid and reliable answers.

We need another poll for this.

Glad you're keeping things on-topic. Some say the 50+ Forum is too foo-like. As for meI prefer to lick the pie directly from the spoke nipples.

Sir! I was speaking about pie and bicycles. I'm quite certain I have no idea what you're talking about.

I'll let you know. I just picked up a locally-made raspberry & peach pie today. Unfortunately, I opted for the small size. I was afraid I might run into my doctor.

That's the name of a restaurant in Wilton, WI, right along the Elroy-Sparta Trail. Although it might now be out of business as it was for sale last year.

I will try it and let you know. I will however need to use a torque wrench when I put the fork back on the bike. Should I try the steel fork or the carbon fiber fork? I suspect my tennis elbow will flare back up with the extra weight of the steel fork. Should I have the wheel on the fork when I try to pick up the pie? All this sounds like too much work, I'd rather ride then go disassembling my bikes for such an experience.

You have been around here much loner than I but I respectfully disagree - I think it belongs in the Training and Nutrition Forum - weight lifting and pie eating - just sayin...
