Re: Ramblings and a new little project
The No-Mar bar should be fine... The key to tire changes and every home tire installer ignores this, is tire lube.
Plenty of tire lube around the bead. All the way around the bead.
This is true for both manual tire machines and the automatic.
I personally feel that you should allow the tire installer to purchase your tires.
If you are carrying them in, before you buy, ask the guy; This is what I can get them for, how much will you charge me to get them?
My deal is that if you buy tires from me, I charge 10.00 per wheel. If you bring in tires it is 20.00 per wheel.
I have lost only one guy who got really pissy with me. I tried to tell him my tools aren't free my time isn't free, valve stems, cores, weights, these all cost money.
A good shop gets cheaper tires when they buy volume. I get a decent kick back for buying volume and I share it with other riders.
