    I've got a pair of 650 Zipp 303 clinchers and found it *very* *very* difficult to get a Conti Grand
    Prix on 'em, even using soap and screw drivers. Is there some trick to putting tires on Zipps?
    thanks, bill g

  3. The "trick" is ....................don't use screwdrivers on Zipps!! They're best left to Huffy's
    and the like.
