4 Broken Tire levers, 2 hours, lots of swearing.
In the end I gave up, went to the LBS and bought some Bontrager xxx lites.
Why are they so flippin tight and anybody got any tips for actually getting them on the rim.
Should have bought tubs
Pop them on the radiator for15mins then apply liberal amount of neat washing up liquid with an old paint brush right round the beads. 8)
Rock 'n' Roule
put them on as much as you can, then leave them to stretch the bead slightly, then push on a little bit more and repeat until they're on.
Pray you don't puncture.
