For my effort to marshal compelling reasons not to buy a Joey, this really isn't helping.

It's a bit fiddly, but I like the direction this is heading in. Kudos to Airnimal.

What a fiddly process.

Last time I tried a Joey it had really skinny tires and you could just jam the rear tire in the front fork along with the front wheel (without take either wheel off). That worked pretty well.

Sorry, no. But it shouldn't be hard to see if you get your hands on a Joey with skinny tires.
