Everything Related to Tires (Wheel removal, Repairs, DIY, ETC...

The following is ALL THE TIRE THREADS on the forum.
I have gone through and identified them into categories.
They are as follows and what they have in them;
(It is possible that I may have missed one or two)

1. Tire Preference - meaning, people opinions for different uses, people’s opinions on wear, peoples opinions for sizes, etc

2. Tire Repair - What patch, should I patch it/replace it, which compressor/pump etc

3. Tire Balancing - Which method should be used, opinions, types of balancing

4. Tire Replacement/DIY - How to do it, what tools used to do it, etc

5. Wheel Removal DIY

6. Tire Pressure

7. Misc Questions etc…

This is intended to alleviate what many would consider the PITA of doing the search for tire questions etc. It is not my intension to “Show up” anyone or to overstep/step on toes!
I have included the tire STICKY threads of MightyShep also.

Wow! It must be bitterly cold, and the snow must be up to the eaves up there.

Well done.

I now understand why the moderators get so pissed and sarcastic when people just hop online and ask "I want to do XXXX and which tire is best for XXXX".

I am on Xmas vacation right now and stay up late when the wife and daughter go to bed. I did it primarily to help the site and to help other forum members with the questions they have.

I want to do one for the tool tube options also. I have noticed +/- 12 or more posts about how and what and where...

Same thing with the 12V power adaptor, there's a bunch of differant "what should I do, where did you put it, how did you do it" posts.

Just want to help that's all.

Thanks!

Thanks for that, I'll get right on it, it's left button first then right button...correct?


Just kidding, nothing gets lost with sarcasm!:biggrinjester:

Yes you are right, that's a question that seems to get asked at the change of the seasons. I can do one and post it so that only the New England, Northeast, Midwest, Northwest, Great Plains and Canadian Troopers Can change the time for Daylight Savings.....





BECAUSE THE MAJORITY OF US CAN'T RIDE RIGHT NOW AND HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL SPRING!!!!!!

Lobster...eeeemmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!! I'm putting studs in my tires tormorrow, Start boiling!!!

Lobster is some darn tempting. 72 hours to NS, little less to Maine...straight driving stopping only for gas, toilet breaks and food...on my Wee...what to do, what to do?

I'd be happy to just go out and see some of Maine on the bike.

Seriously though, my family is in Halifax and I may try and do a ride out there eventually. I may end up living in New Brunswick sometime soon, Fredericton area.


Thanks by the way.

Feels good to be in the minority then. It is going to be 75 today and clear sunny skies. Hmmm time to go for a ride

This is called payback for 90 deg. riding in 100% humidity during the summer.
