Some time ago posted about having fallen off my bike while riding alone in the mountains. As much as I like having a well outfitted machine, not being able to get it up right after a fall is a pretty big negative.

Guess there were a few options open to me; carry less stuff, do some body building exercises to develop the strength that has been lost over the years, quit riding, or perhaps, quit riding alone. They all have merit, though I moved in a different direction. Gerry

Problem..."I've fallen and I can't get it up"

Gerry's solution... "I've fallen and I can get it up"!:p

Practical, useful, and easy to carry.

Brilliant Gerry!
You may have just furthered the advancement of mankind.
Best use of a lever since 'ol Charley Archimedes.

Thanks Fred.
I also made a sleeve that joins the two sections of rod. As well, I now have a 48" leverage bar for prying a wheel out of an erosion gully. Gerry
