Do they want you to purchase the tire from them?
X2 or 3 or whatever this post is, for Zen Moto. However you can also go to MotoTire at Sweetwater and CaveCreek if that is closer, also Cycle Gear right next door on Cave Creek will do a tire.

However... Zen Moto is a local guy we all should support.

+1 for Mototire. He's also a local one man shop that just does tires and does excellent work with fair prices. Danny is his name as I recall. Been a couple years since I moved up here and my memory sucks. I'm back to doing my own work up here since I've been too lazy to find someone, but next back tire I'm farming out.

Mototire is the cheapest I have found. Mount and balance with the tire off the bike was $20.00 last time I was there. Cycle Gear was $30.00 a tire plus the cost of a new tube (they state new tubes are mandatory on Dual Sport bikes).

Last time they did a tire for me (2005, maybe?), they mounted it backwards. It was right after that when I bought my own mounting stand and balancer.

Well... did they correct it? The guy at Cycle Gear who does tires is actually a nice guy who will bend over backwards. Mistakes happen. Insisting on a tube however is questionable and a issue I never ran into with them. However I've used Danny at MotoTire more.

Will the Cycle Gear guys come out in the desert and fix a flat? Last time I chipped a nail and don't want to repeat that experience.

I had to push hard to get them to fix it that day, since it was almost closing time when I picked it up and then noticed the problem once I was at work. To their credit, I dropped the wheel off and they then returned it to me at work that evening. Someone stayed late to correct the problem, but my mind was made up. I've been doing my own tire changes ever since.

Another thing they did back then was insist on new valve stems every time you put on a tire. I don't know if they still adhere to that practice.

I haven't had someone install a tire for me in a verrrrry long time. I take the tack that it is something I should be good at and the best way to be good at it is practice. When I set the way-back machine to the times I had it done it was pretty random at how well it was done. Backwards tires, poor balance, tubes that fail three days later (still think it's a good idea to put a brand new tire on right before the long ride?)...

Once you're good at it, it's pretty easy and doesn't take long. I've very successfully fixed a lot of flats road-side that might not have gone as well without the practice. Eventually I broke down and got the rim clamp that bolts down to the garage floor and that makes my back happy and makes the job at home that much easier.

I'm not defending Cycle Gear. It just sounded like a mistake was made and wanted to know if they made it right... the rest of the story so to speak.

I agree with changing your own. I've been doing it since a kid way back in the early 70's. (I wish I still had that Suzuki TM 125.) Sometimes however I'll let someone else do it. I live right by MotoTire and CycleGear so they generally get more of my tire/tube money.
