      Caveat: Some members have noted that the spare may not fit over some front brake assemblies; if the flat is on the front, you'd have to move the rear tire to the front and put the spare on the rear.

      Trailer Hitch:
      Several readers have installed the Curt Hitch #13266 from etrailer.com or amazon.com. It is a Class 3 hitch with the larger 2-inch receiver for bike racks and trailers.

      Yes...this is awesome. The S40 has had this for years and has been most helpful.

      Thank you.

      It would be fantastic if all of the reference materials could be kept/moved to the first post. Having to search through posts within a (growing) thread is difficult. The S40/V50 how-to thread was a lifesaver and great model for this one!
