Trying to get a brand new set of Vittoria Corsa's on a set of clinchers and they are bloody tight. Never normally have problems.....any tips? Don't want to rin the risk of a pinch flat!

    Hold the wheel so the bit you are struggling with is up (12 o'clock)

    Grab the tyre tightly at 3 and 6 oclock and firmly push towards the bit you are struggling with. This stretches the tyre slightly. They are tight but I can get them on and off without resorting to a lever...

    If you read the instructions that come with the tyres it tells you to start at opposite the valve and work equally so you push the last bit of bead over the valve. I've never had any problems doing it that way. Bit of talc powder should help if necessarry :!:
