just need to check one thing here, have you tried mounting more than one pair of tires, of different brands? sometimes one manufacturer uses tighter beads than others, making it a lot harder to get tires on.

are they new tires?

if they are, mount them on a easier set of wheels, inflate them to max pressure, and leave them for a day. this works sometimes.

a guy in my shop mounted some conti GP 3000s on HED jet wheels and just about burst a vein in his forehead. At the time i was teasing him but perhaps i shoud have been nicer. :oops:

If you need to, rubbing alcohol works as a lube without killing anything (except maybe decals..) It's the best thing for mounting rubber grips on mtn bikes, too.........

Hi

Thanks for all the answers. :D

It's a new pair of Continental Force/attack. I've used to ride Schwalbe, but now it's time for something new.......... :)
