I've changed many flats and put on several sets of new wheels. I've NEVER had so much trouble getting a tire back on the wheel as I'm having now.
These last 2 flats are my firstones on this wheel set, (Easton EA SL) I'm following standard procedures for forming the tube with slight inflation, then working around the wheel with each hand. I get close to the end and then those last 5 inches are wearing me out.
I've been trying to just man-up and thumb that last edge over the wheel but I've messed my thumbs up. Blisters! Good thing I'm not stuck out on the road somewhere trying to finish the flat repair!
There has to be a tip or trick for this? Please tell me.
