Anyone mount a 26" tire themselves?


Well-Known Member
Well I'm getting ready to order my 26" wheel. Only problem is they don't mount them, and in small town New Mexico there's no one for 300 miles that can. So my question is, has anyone hand mounted a 26 vee rubber on a rim themselves. If so how and is it hard? Thanks


I seen/helped paul mount 1, he does them by hand, and its a bitch lol - and guessing when he does them alone, its got to be a bigger bitch.

here is what you will need:
-2 buddies (preferably strong)
-video camera

now sit in the lawnchair and film it while drinkin beer so we can find out how hard it actually is hahah

I was going to highly recommend sending it to somebody that knows what the hell they are doing. Mounting a 23" without the appropriate tools was hard enough for me... but I'm a complete frickin' mo-roon so I'm at an obvious disadvantage...
