Not too dumb I hope. How do you mount an upright bike? Safely that is. No jumping over the rear wheel the way Gene Autry used to do with his horse.
Right now I lay the bike almost down,hold the handlebars like they were a pole, swing the off leg over, then lift the bike upright. That is way too much drama. Then start off with a wobbly 1/4 diameter pedal stroke to get moving.
Gotta be a better way.
