Quote from: Jonners on October 15, 2013, 10:43:34 amDecided I am crap at changing tyres/inner tubesPunctured 2 new ones while getting my winter bike ready and serviced. There must be a knack, but im buggered if I know what it is
Quote from: Andy42g on October 15, 2013, 10:59:32 amTop Tip: Put a tiny bit of air in the tube before you put it in the tyre to get it back on. I've found this lifts it away from the rim and stops you pinch puncturing with the levers.
Quote from: The Old Dog on October 15, 2013, 20:39:21 pmNot a big fan of levers other than taking the tyre off ,I've found that over the years fingers and thumbs do a better job, it's usually just the last inch or so of getting the wire over the rim that should require a lever and even then if the tyre is warm it should slip on without too much difficulty ..

Quote from: Jonners on October 28, 2013, 15:03:05 pmjust....Very very few gold medal times in the epic distance as opposed to normal, really split the men from the boys, and unfortunately I wasn't quite up to it. In all fairness Im not the ideal physique for road biking anyway, and certainly wasn't scything through the head on 50mph winds yesterday.
