Installing my new tire?

So anyone got all the equipment to change tires? I currently have just about everything, except tire spoons and a bead breaker. I was wondering if anyone can install this tire for around $20 or so. I know a few members on here got together and bought the stuff to do it, just want to spread some money and meet some new peeps also

I was going to do this but I couldn't cut the old tire off last time.

It seemed harder taking the old tire off then putting the new one on for me. I did my front tire a few months ago.

I did mine a while back, it's not too hard. Just watch some videos. I used a 2x4 and a car to break the bead (was really stuck on there) then a couple of small spoons to pop the tires off. Soapy water for the lube.

....and a bunch of scratches on your rims and flex on your brand new tire with which you'd probably do triple digits!

Use the plastic guard thing with the string on it. No scratches.

I didn't use spoons or anything. Just putenough zip ties and make them tight enough. I used Windex and it came right off then the new one popped right on.

I see you're in mo/city.

I stay next to Quail valley middle school.
I'll do it off the bike for $10 bucks. Just to help you out.
30.00 if you bring the bike to me.
Garage is open for you.

The ziptie way looks pretty legit, but at the prices offered here, it might be easier to let the pros handle it.

brakes and tires are just two of the most technical things I don't mess around with, always let the professionals handle it
