    Another Tire Loses The Battle With scotti158 and His Tire Spoons!!

    Another tire mounted this spring, this time on the 1600. 16 inch rim with disc on both sides was a bugger to get on. Disc limited tire spoon movement. In hindsight, I think pulling 1 disc off would have helped. That should be the last tire for the year, if I don't get a puncture.

    With all that practice you could probably mount a new SR241 on my bike in like maybe 10 minutes?

    I'm not fast, maybe half fast. Would be happy to help. Do you have the tire?
