That's crazy man. I'm quite sure that if you let those folks know at cycle gear what the deal is I'm confident that you all can resolve the matter among yourselves. Those guys at cycle gear are not only riders themselves but they are also A1 quality type people. Talk to Jerry up there - I believe he is the manager.

sup yall. i am christopher at cycle gear, alot of yall have met me. i am the one who pulled that tire off and mounted the new one...and yes i used a tire iron, not a screwdriver, lol. i even soap it up to make things easier... we have a machine that holds the rim in place, and a small wedge that pulls the bead off as it spins it around...i am guessing this is when it happened, but as i didnt see or hear anything to notice at the time, i cant really be sure how/when it happened.

i was all bent out of shape about it, really feeling bad.:eh: .. until albert told me that this can happen. it wasnt really my fault, sometimes things like this happen. something about heat cycles and UV on the tires causes them to be less flexible. that makes sense to me since i have pulled tires off a rim, and put the same size / brand on there, and they feel alot different. the old ones feel harder and slicker, less pliable, and the new ones are always nice and rubbery like an eraser...easy to work with (mostly, lol :confused2 )

i always take better care with other riders rims, than i do my own. you all know i ride with yall. your not just customers to me, and i know how important quality work is on the these machines we get so much fun out of.
id hate for bad accidents to happen, this is the major reason why i suggested lin get a fresh set of tires, instead of patching it, as he planned when he came in...after what marcus brooks went through last wednesday......i dont trust any kind of patch or plug for ...poor guy.

lin, you seem like a cool dude, it was good to meet you, same as all the other MH'ers i meet up there. i hope that you and Albert were able to work out something fair. id hate for you to have a bad impression of me, or the store.

well, ...its sat night...so im about to roll out to PP1. yall know how what where when to reach me...

peace

not saying it was your fault at all. the difference is new tires still have oil in the rubber to make them plyable flexable and grippy. just saying that he shouldnt run the tire. old tires tend to do that because the oil has dryed out of the rubber. at least its this way on 18 wheeler tires.

So really, what Linjy should do, is buy a set of wheels and mount his track day tires on so that instead of replacing tires, he can just swap wheels and avoid them ripping apon take off (Which I really do believe is not the tire removers fault)

What say?

its cool chris, i dont blame you. accidents happen although i expect company to pay up instead of beating around the bush. i didnt really get what i wanted, but i didnt try. maybe if i got the BBB or my dad, he gets done.

What do i want. A new tire. i'll give you the prorated fee for it, but i cant justify buying another tire at the so so discount.

really though, i would think you damage a tire. you replace it with one that is same or newer. not telling the customer, o it is old, so we cant warrant replacing with a new tire. didnt really offer me anything worth while imho.

what did i get out of this whole deal. free tire warranty and my now useless front tire .:eh:

o and my rear tire that i wanted to patch, i am still going to patch it. the hole on the inside is not even close to a big nail size, its about the size of this "." which leaks air very slowly and would still prove useful when i commute.

IMO, you always take a risk when dismounting an old tire with intentions of remounting it elsewhere. Like Chris said, sometimes old tires stick very tight and are very hard to dismount without some damage to the tire. This is rarely a problem, because usually the tire comming off is trash anyhow. Take your car to a tire shop with some low profile tires, have them pull the tires, and try to get them to pay if a bead gets messed up, ha...i think you'll find it's just one of the risks involved.

cheers!

from my experience, tires coming off, often if not most times get tore off getting them off the wheel.

linjy, did you tell them you planned to reuse the tires?

yeah i told them i was reusing them. i had patrick give me my old tires last time and they were in perfect condition. :icon_smil

and they did grease the out of these tires to dismount them. i think its just lack of experience.
