DIYTIRE2!!

DIY Tire Removal 2 differs from DIY 1. We at BCL Labs stand 100-150'
behind this one as foolproof and welcome fools who screw this up to
cawment further.

OK. Lets cut the expletive deleted here.



TIRE CHANGING.

Tool list-

1. Prestone silicone lubricant available at Woolmort
2. Park's TL-1 Tire Lever called ‘spoonbill' tire levers.
blue colour, pack of three
4. Dutch Plastic Tire Levers imported by Kool Stop comes in 3 pack,
rubber
embrader on the enclosure's sides! Amazing.
5. Abrasive pad, green color available at woolmort.
6. Rag, clean.
7. Possible use for Duct tape, Nashua 368 for velo or
rubber strip splicing and valve hole mending.
also sharp razor blade helps here.


Wipe tire, rim clean. Inspect for punctures and mark rim and tire for
puncture postions. Deflate tube.Make a tube deflator? Use a presta
adaptor and center epoxy a pin to depress valve.

A. Place wheel on your lap and at your belly Grab tire's bottom center
with fingers both hands pinching bead inward off the rim's shoulders,
deflating tube.
Pinch pinch pinch pushing the tire forward or away from your position
and outward until reaching rim center diameter then do the same but
squeeze inward. Play ina gadda da vida if its around?

Twisting may help if yawl can chew gum and walk.

Understand the rim pinching and bead centering. Yawl are changing the
relationship between tire and rim diamteres giving slack so the bead
can be pried off the rim edge.

Cyclists (me too) often wonder why the tire doesn't come off the
expleted deleted rim after squeezing and whatever. "Why by golly it's
the tires fault." ACH DU!

Well NO!: truth is yawl expletive deleted stupid and the tire/rim gone
and outsmarterd you big time. Gotta be smarter than the rim/tire!
Astounding. Oh , there are ‘cyclists' squeezing 700 onto 27 and 27
onto…

Know the guy who sits in an airplane hanger in Arizona with 40 thugs
dressed ina tux and robes watching 20 TV screen 6'x6'. That's the dude
controlling the rim/tire size. You have expleted deleted!! By the way,
this dude exterminates ‘cyclists', yawl know right. Sooner or later…

THE SOLUTION IS: (well, one of them. we can't cover everything here,
right?)

AFTER SQUEEZING YAWL BRAINS OUT, PACE ONE DUTCH HOOKED TIRE
LEVER(TOOLIST 1) BETWEEN RIM AND TIRE BEAD AT 12 NOON DIRECTLY
OPPOSITE YAWL'S POSITION. LEVER BEAD UP AND OUTWARD, HOOK THE NEAREST
SPOKE. NOTICE HOW THE LEVER'S BEAD END IS LIPPED(OR HOOKED-HAVING MORE
THAN ONE HOOK HERE GIVES ME A MIGRAINE) THE TIRE BEAD INSERTION
END(AH) HOLDS THE BEAD IN PLACE!! THIS IMAGE COMES IN HANDY IN A FEW
MINUTES.

Repeat step A. Repeat A. if compulsive or obsessive and if so check
for the tire deflator installed before A.

Now the bead will stay centurd and a max diameter shift will continue
when yawl squeeze and press and twist rather than slip backwards and
back onto the rim shoulder-then convincing a neophyte that the factory
has … this is a humorous list but time…

OK. Now for the good stuff at toolist 1: Prestone silicone. Prestone
has engineered this product to not only rip yawl off with as zero
possible silicone but provide a usable product. Way to go Prestone!!!

Spray silicone(that's what the can sez) on yawl no wait on the
rim/tire wall from now inserted lever to about an optomystic six
inches traveling right. Cleaning the levers and spray the tips is OK.

Do not breath this ****.

Insert toolist tool 2: the Park's spoonbill lever, a specialized tool
The Park spoonbills tend not to catch the tube when prying tire beads.
Better than the hooked Dutch lever anyway. The spoonbill shape is
effective for removing a fat tube from a skinny tire carcass without
pinching and then holing the tube. Both sets are almost indispensable,
cheap… and there's always a spare around.

Loosen the fingers or grow another arm mit hand. Insert spoonbill
adjacent Dutch lever and pry,hold spoonbill. Insert a second
spoonbill, pry, hold second. A third, fourth…by now the beads coming
over rim edge, the tire's carcass no longer tightly held onto the rim.
The silicone lubes this beautifully: Itsa miracle.

The finger dexterity, and arm, knee, teeth, requi=red here is a
developed art. Takes practice and ingenuity. Imagination.
Intelligence.

One thing to be said: learning how to use the tools may be more
important than learning how to change the tire before the sun sets.

Do not run the levers sideways along the rim top squishing(that's what
you think but its not gonna be dude)to reposition the bead outside the
rim. Running the lever along the rim top to move the bead over the top
and free and NOT prying carefully often separates bead rubber from the
bead. Itsa bad habit. Abrading rubber from the bead with a tire lever
is directly proportional to the tire's expense.

AHHH!! Remove tire, clean tire's insides, tube, slime liner and hang
to stay clean.

Clean rim's metal( who knows right??ceramic bearings?) inside clincher
wall or whatever with a small 1x2" piece of green abrasive
pad(woolmort) moist with yeah! Prestone silicone lubricant.

After cleaning, inspecting, repair (yes!! self-sealing tubes are
patchable) checking for tread direction and the continuing integrity
of the velox/rubber strip-both repairable with duct tape
(homedepot-avoid woolmort), spray another 12" tire wall with prestone
and locate that portion as the next area for a pryoff.

And check the brake pads for tire wall rub.

I think this post should be added to the rec.bicycles.tech FAQ.

One wonders if Mr. Daniels has ignored his own advice. ;)

the deflator using a presta adapter is a solderable pin depressor. If
using epoxy, not a torch or high wattage solder iron, Loctite is a
proven compound available at better auto stores. The other 2 part
epoxy available at woolmort has a dubiuos reputation as lefgtovers
from other epoxy manufactures-like its scraped off the tanks bottom
and reground? The Loctite has a stated pounds per square inch holding
power and lasts if kept dry with heat or paint(not solvent to the
epoxy)
the suggestion that the obviously but hidden beneath electron-pounds
of 'other stuff' equally unsearchable by the needy be placed in an
area where writing[25]. goes on with psuedo technical post electric
shock therapy writing standards that are unacceptable in DIY which off
course stands for the archaic Do-It-Yourself, a source that in fact
stands by itself but lacks a shill bleating about it's existence every
week.For example, "DIY paint removal" is an essential answer to its
FAQ(Feynman's Absolute Quark) or "chain guard $2", a semi-original
invention.
The solution to this stupidty(aside from my getting run over by a
printer)is a search mechanism revealing suitable archived answers to a
post's title statement combined hehehe with commercials for various
widgets at the post form. If yawl gonna give away 100 gigabites of
attic space for email's on monkey pong then why not print some more
dough with something thatill advance civilization a qouta...?
