I'm almost due for a new set of hoops, I did like my Pirelli but might have to try these out. What are they like in the twisties? Do they hook up well?
It becomes easier as you practice it more. The key is to keep it well lubed. Lubrication makes all the difference in getting the bead to slip on or off.Wow that was hard! I got it on though. I feel good about doing it myself too
I wonder why the shop charges so much for the wheel removal. That was the easy part. The tire was the hard part. Very hard. Hard to break that bead and stretch it out over the rim. I'm sure it will go easier next time now that I know what I'm doing.
