Rim locks are no problem. And for one beer I'll show you how to do it if the rim lock is on the other side of the rim from the valve stem.

Quick tire install

Waste 2:16 of you life.

Wheels are balanced. Sorta. Okay they're about 75% - 80% balanced and then I got lazy and deemed them good enough. Just gotta swap out the rear wheel bearings and I'll call wheels good and move on to regular P.M. and skid plate.


Plenty of time, plenty of tiem!

Had a slight set back with bike prep...





I should be able to get things sorted before I have to drive down. Still looking forward to the trip, but when I pull in to park... WATCH OUT!

That's 75-80% more balanced than my wheels.

I am not as fast as Jimmy... but that is exactly how I do it. And if you end at the second rim lock... the tire still just pops on.

The big thing is to not be afraid of flats... they happen, get comfortable fixing them.

Offer is out there again... I am changing tires this weekend (San Fernando Valley), flat-fixing-nOObs are welcome to come over and help/watch or bring your own wheels tires and I will laugh at you... I mean... help you through it.

Pretty sure that qualifies as a BAD DAY. Sorry Aaron
