Surly Dummy in a HDB

Castor wheels found near Sungei Road area
Single U bolt and zip tie to hold everything in position, plus lots of used inner tube to prevent scratches
Some folks asked me how is it like to have a Surly Dummy in a HDB enviroment. The challenge is to lift the bike vertically up to fit into the lift. For me, I do this by rigging up 2 small roller wheels - ala Brompton style.. so that I can wheel it easily. A picture tells a thousand words.. so here is my implementation. Using not drilling. Just off the shelf U bolts and castor wheels. And it works!
Flip it up and roll into lift. Can even stand on its own!
with the easy main stand.. Dummy is stable for just sitting
