New rear tire

That photo is 45 minutes in the making. I should’ve take a before photo or some during photos, but I didn’t. Good grief though. Tires are hard. The tires on the bike were 11 years old and very hard. They didn’t want to flex. They didn’t want to break loose off the rim.

Maybe I’m just terrible at this.

This was another 45 minutes to get the tire back on without pinching the tube. I definitely learned something though. I learned I should’ve spent the extra $20 to buy the longer tire spoons from Motion Pro. I got the 3 spoons for $30 instead of the 2 for $50. The 18″ spoons would’ve made this job significantly easier. The 10″ spoons work, but the extra leverage would’ve been nice for my first attempt.
