    To summarise:

    Turn bike upside down = using logic, rational thought and common sense.

    Bike with wheels up = Roadie.

    Bike with wheels up = upside down bike?

    Last time my bike was upside-down, so was I, a few yards in front of it

    Wasn’t I there when that happened? Two crashes in about 2 mins wasn’t it?

    Last time I had my bike upside down I almost lost 1 cm of my index finger

    At least I’m not the only one. Me too about 2 weeks ago, lamely demonstrating how to build the bike up and put the back wheel in…

    Currently end of index finger stitched on, in splint as fractured bone, and I have to shower with a plastic bag over it. It’s significantly affecting my ability to ride – so in short don’t do it… 🙂

    It’s a well known fact that if you turn your bike upside down, all the air will run out of your tyres

    when I get a puncture the air falls out of the bottom of my tyres, it only makes sense to turn the bike upside down so I can pour it back in.
