Got a crowbar?
Don't ever use a crowbar on presision cycling equipment. Better to clamp the blue bit between a couple of 2X4s with nails, suspend the bike from a rafter beam and then turn the pedals as fast as you can, centrifical force should dislodje the rock. If that doesn't work then spin the pedals faster and jently introduce a hard object , a hammer, to the rock. Works 99% of the time.

I remember seeing a while ago a picture of a bicycle wheel made just after WW I in Germany, at a time when rubber was all but unavailable, and it had 2" springs all around.

excellent idea!

I will ride it through a gravel pit. You know I was going to clean it up a bit but I was afraid somebody would mistake it for a Colnago and steal it.

don't worry about it, if you keep riding without tires long enough you'll just catch more rocks anyways

I think you are going to need a torch for that one! But be careful not to melt the "Revenge of the NERDS" boots!!!

Good Luck

Park Tool makes the Shimano rock removal tool. It retails for $39.99. It comes in blue, very nice.

face the rear wheel in the direction of a window, pick up the rear wheel approx 6" off the ground and pedal vigorously. This may require assistance from another boot wearer.

Knowing my luck the rock would go upwards, right through the crystal chandelier.

Excuse me but that rock was meant for you to use for added traction on rocky terrain. Don't remove it.
