Hey bud, plz do me a favor when you got a second and a digital caliper in your hands. measure the actual inflated width of the tires.
You know, I have never even thought to take a tuner to the strings. Got me thinking now.....
I had 3 hours off and on to work on my bike this weekend. I'm not sure why people say they have trouble putting the motor back into the frame. With my frame strapped down, and 3 feet off the ground, it was a piece of cake to lift the motor and gently slide it into place.
I see the seat's position is blocked with metal seat, are you afraid of the tire will touch the metal sheet when you ride the bike?
Plus I'm a "one man band" over here.
To avoid certain embarrassment, I will not be stating that I am almost 30 years younger than you sir. I've said too much.
