Thanks for the recommendation. Looks like they're closed Mondays but I'll keep them in mind for the future.

If you want to use my Cycle Hill tire changer, you're welcome to come change out the tires in my drive-way. If you can't find someone to work with your schedule you might have to?

That would be excellent.........if you don't mind coaching me through it... :) I've watched tire changes before, but never done them myself... Do you have a way to balance them as well?

I'll PM you for contact info...

I hear Dan will do it for pizza and cupcakes...

BTW, Bill and I can give tips for balancing if needed.

Welcome!

I will certainly contribute beer to the effort for any and all present, even if they're just gawking. :)

And Dan, I texted you back regarding details, time, etc.

Guys, I'm going to chat with Dan in the morning, but based on weather I may end up leaving the bike in the garage for this trip, meaning that the tire mounting will be delayed for about a week. Stay tuned for more details... :

if you've got the tire and are in midtown, you can bring it to my house and we can swap it out.

Hey all, I chatted with Dan this morning. I am going to leave the bike at home due to weather concerns so no need to do the tire change today, but I'm looking forward to doing the job and meeting some of you when I get back.

Thanks!!
