    BTW, regarding that wideo: does anyone really NOT know how to fold a slim tire in three loops?

    You just push one side (one-half) of the tire inside out and then tuck it into the other side so the whole looks like half a tire (should look like a giant "C") and then roll it up.
    Falling is learning...[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]...learn to not fall in a box.
    Any good American will watch THIS -and- WHERE WAS MY BIKE MADE?

    Basically flatten it like z415 says, then fold up one end about 5" and roll the rest around it.
    Looks somewhat like this at the end (this is folded in half somehow, no big difference):

    Thanks. And the bead won't complain?
