    Firing up the boiler!

    LOL... Just getting the new tire ready to mount..

    I'm just leaving it on the floor in the boiler room so it's ready when I am, it's usually about 100 degrease in there. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get it done.

    It should spoon on easy! I'm really excited to get that deathwing off. That thing scares me at least twice a ride.

    For those that have changed their front stock tire, how easy does it come off? Any advice? I've changed a lot of tires but they're all a bit different, some are a real you know what to get off.

    Front tire easy peasy....rear PITA. But make sure you degrease that tire before you subject it to 100 degrees.

    Thanks, there's nothing better than hearing back from someone with your experience. You've probably ridden enough miles to wear out 50 or more of those tires. I guess I won't have to fire up the front end loader to get the tire off after all

    Wait till my wife finds out how easy it will be for her to do! LOL I left it in front of the coffee pot with a note this morning, waiting for the text from her now now!

    I am a two spoon guy when it comes to tires (and Post Raisin Bran).

    Even the rear tire was uneventful when I changed it.

    Hey JerseyJeeper, your wife called and said she got the tire on…bent the rim a little bit and there might be some small very minor pin holes in it now BUT the tire is on and ready to roll!

    Grab a plastic milk crate and drop the wheel on one with the disc down inside the open end.
    Makes it a while lot easier!
