Alright, I ran into a dilemma, I took apart my single speed bike for a whole deep body cleaning for the first time since I purchased it 6 months ago. After I mounted the new bull horns I purchased, I tried to get my tires and new tubes on the rims, but I can not for the life of me get the last 4 or 5 inches of tire back on the rim... I tried using a small flat head screw driver, a large flat head, screw driver, and the tire lever that came with my specialized multi tool, but two popped tubes later I still can not get them back on. I use to have tire levers that worked great to get tires off/on, but apparently I can not leave anything in the living room of my apartment without it getting thrown away or lost... (because of a fat ***** that lived with me and my roommate for 3 months...)
I really want to get this sorted before i leave for uni in the morning, so any advice on how to get road tires back onto rims would be great.
