The old wheels dont have rim locks though, right? I dont remember seeing it on any of my bikes...

That is such a good fine. I've wrestled for hours getting tires off. It takes that guy less than 5 minutes...

It's all about having the right size tool and the technique... :)

Very nice, I've never changed a motorcycle tire before but they make it look easy. Thanks for posting Noel.


My fear when I get around to doing it will be scratching the paint or powder coat on the rim though.  :-\

Nice video locO :) I was attempting to remove my rear tyre just today. I have two 60" tyre levers, tried to get the blasted thing off for nearly half an hour... So much so that the steel levers bent out of shape, so much so they were un-useable. Still hadn't got the tyre off!! To the shop i think for them....  >:(

removing is the easy part... putting back on is another story... Honestly, Id rather have a professional do it.

that's where they're headed soon... getting them powder-coated, so will definitely have to get a professional to put the tyres back on. wouldn't want that beautiful paint being scuffed up now, would we?!
