130 to get the tires mounted? lmao, dude it shoulda been like 50 TOPSDesp said:-rant- I'm thinkin i kinda got screwed over by them, they told me it'd be 100 and done by 12 noon, it was 130 and done by 4. They said they had to charge me extra because it took the guy a long time to get the back tire back in the bike because the rear brake pad kept falling out. He said that was due to the fact it was completely worn down. Well I had taken off my tire not to long before that and I still had a little pad, although it was worn down good. they also drained my brake fluid or something, I had no rear brake when they were done!
Not quite. Before mounting the new tire, you should check the balance of the rim itself. The valve stem isn't always the heaviest part of the tire/rotor assembly. Find and mark the heaviest portion of the rim, then you can mount the tire accordingly.paulF3 said:last two tires i changed, i didn't need weights at all. on m/c tires you line up the red dots on the opposite side of the valve stem, I think...might be the opposite way. I will check for you guys in a few.
Have to add my recommendation for this set. I bought a set, and found out that the guy that runs that business lives just a few towns north of me. Fellow rider, good guy. Everything you need for about the price of a rear tire.dmk said:
