Beware the inverted nipple.
 
Flopping on a new Tourance and decided to replace the nipple.
A bit of a D'oh moment, thought it might be appreciated in here.

:roflI'm glad I'm not the only one that does stupid mistakes...like the last time I changed my tires. I installed it backwards the first time...ok, stupid mistake, thought I checked. I removed the tire, checked up and down, and then reinstalled it...backwards again!! Holy hell I was pissed. 3rd time was a charm though. and yes I was sober.

No matter how good you are, or how much experience you have, anyone is likely to make simple mistakes given the law of averages.

Personally I have installed tires backwards more than twice, among the numerous little mistakes I have made! :shog

Wha...wa where's the schrader valve...oh shit...

waddyp 03-28-2013 07:35 AM

I think you're on to something- we two valves on each wheel, one to put air in, one to let air out.... Welcome to the world of senior moments. You're never too young to err.

Dan-M 03-28-2013 07:36 AM

DOH!

We've all had brain cramps like that. It least you noticed before you spooned the bead back on and attempted to air up.
