Help with wheel assembly
I have just purchased a Gary Fisher Utopia. I tried to mount some 25c tires on the stock wheels to go on a road trip. I'm not experienced with bikes, so it took me about an hour to do this. This last part of the tire just would get on the rib by hand (I read that I had to do this by hand so as not to snag the tube). I don't know if there's some kind of trick to it that you guys use, but brute force just takes a long time (and it hurts too).
In the light of the above i'm considering getting a new set of wheels and have the road tires mounted on the one set and the stock dual purpose tires on the other. Now, how hard is it to assemble the wheels with the disc brakes and the cassette in the rear? And where do I get the parts? I'm not even so sure about the part numbers that I need, so I would apprecite any input on this as well.
Thanks a lot, and I apologize for asking too much info in my first post.
