DFW tire changes?

Now that the most helpful member mellow is out of the changing business with his NoMar, any recommendations on inexpensive and ding-free tire changing that does not require a tire purchase?

This month sometime I need to get around to reskinning a set of unblemished marchesini wheels that I am hoping remain unblemished. Doing the front with spoons by hand is a three advil exercise for me, but attempts at the rear tires are beyond what I seem to be able to accomplish.

Tubeless or tube type?

Re: DFW tire changes?

This month it is tubeless, but I need to get after the old britbike tube tires one of these days. I'd just have wheels pulled.

Re: DFW tire changes?

What happened to Mellow? I must have missed that thread.

Also, there is this guy in South Arlington that mounts and balances tubeless tires for the paltry sum of dinner at Firehouse (or Rudy's as soon as it's opened). If only he would post up in this thread.

Re: DFW tire changes?

I wonder who that would be

Mellow's post just dropped off or was deleted in the tire changing subforum. I did not ping him, but I presumed he did not want to anymore since the post was gone, maybe I'm wrong. There were several tire bikes in various stages of dismemberment in his garage keeping his weekend pretty busy when I was last over a year ago with my fat rear... tire.

I have no tires in hand yet and have not pulled wheels as it takes me a bit of scratching to work up to a project.

He can also be paid with PeiWei.

And, you may be lucky enough to play with Max, too!

I wonder how many tires he'll change if we all pitch in for PeiWei. Do we have to buy the drink too?

Strange thing, he was always quick to reply up about his tire changing. But I can completely understand if he was getting overwhelmed by it. That's why the guy I'm thinking of doesn't have a post up in the tire changing forum.

Let me know when you have a tire ready and I can get you in contact with him.

Well, he had a string of tire changes from someone (he wouldn't say who), who was doing track days almost every weekend and needing tires almost every week. He told me something about just being too tired from all the constant changes, and had a slip of the hand.

I can see it quickly becoming a thankless job

Really? Perhaps the belly full of burger made it hard to concentrate...

Re: DFW tire changes?

Sorry guys, I asked Scott to pull that thread.

Due to work and family obligations I kept having to tell guys I couldn't do it more times than I could.

I think October is looking better so let me know and we can arrange a time that works for both of us.

DFW tires: I use Texas Supersport in Plano. $25 on-bike/per tire, both tube & tubeless. You can bring tires in or have them order. Prices are about 15% less than Cycleger.

Cycle Gear in Hurst area is off bike only.

Do any of them around take them on the bike?

I've heard Biker's Bay in Bedford (off Harwood & 121 now) will. No personal experience though.
