Tire change around Lufkin/Nacogdoches

I went out to start up the bike and go for a ride today, and the rear tire was completely flat. The tire only had 1500 miles on it. Oh well. New tire is on the way, and I wanted to see if anyone in the area had a no-mar or equivalent that wouldn't mind helping out next weekend. Wheel would already be off the bike, just need the new tire mounted. I plan on paying too. I just want to avoid the stealerships if possible.

I am too far away up here in DFW, but I don't have a NoMar equivalent machine anyway. I just have a HF machine that has changed a couple hundred tires.

What kind of bike is the wheel off of?

Might check with Marcus and his crew down at The Cycleshop on US69 South of Loop in Lufkin -- a cycle salvage/repair shop where they also build trikes.

I know the HF works well, and won't scratch the wheels with mojo blocks. At any rate, it's off a 2012 Street Triple R. I know of a few places in Houston that charge $15-20, but by the time I pay for the gas to get there...

Thanks for the lead. I'll have to give him a call.
