Instead of pinching tubes with a plain ole tire iron Doc wants to try Ginsu!

Then if I think it works ok I will tell Ted when his 606s show up and he will just call me crazy for ever listening to you. But that's ok I like new ideas.

a few beers, some dawn soap, a couple of tire spoons, and possibly a drip or two of sweat...

those are my own tools for tire changes.

Yep I think it's well known now in the Ozarks and all across Oklahoma. Don't let Doc get to close to your goat or your tires. We only because we love ya.

I'm liking it. It's a really comfy bike, really good on pavement and pretty good off road. I'd say it's a winner.

my idea incorporates the use of my deck (thats D E C K guys )....a little top weight to secure the wheel while spoonin on the tire and no bending over...anyway, I think it will work real good for me..but wont know till I give it a go
