    Mountain Bike Tyre problem

    I had 26x1.9 mountain bike tyres on my specialized mountain bike. I decided
    I wanted some road tyres to help improve my road speed, so I bought
    some Nimbus Armidalo 26x1.5 tyres (and inner-tubes). Well I tried putting
    the nimbus tyre on my front wheel but it won't go all the way on, last bit won't
    tuck into the wheel rim. I cannot now get the thing off either....the tyres are very
    inflexible as they are puncture proof...any suggestions? Did I mess up on the tyre size?

    NO OIL! Never ever use oil to mount a tire. If you need to lubricate some dish soap is more than adequate and it'll rinse right off.

    They'd be too big sparky he's having trouble getting a 26x1.5 on in place of a 26x1.9

    27" tires have been around longer than you or I have been alive and they are still quite common (as far as replacing them goes).

    Check here for MOST of the sizes that have been availiable over the years. http://www.sheldonbrown.com/tire-sizing.html

    By oil I meant something to lube it up with, to insure easy fit. Is it too late to correct myself ?

    You were expecting maybe an educated discussion on thermonuclear physics?

    Not exactly, but Geez man. Its like...this forum is for people to ask about buying new cheap bikes instead of biking as a whole. Y'know? We need controversy here, and hot chicks and dead animals and fire and feces and slayer and chicken sandwiches.
    Dont PM me.

    Mmmmm chicken sandwiches. I just had this Buffalo chicken breast sandwhich I made at the house

    I really think that most of the people who come here and ask those cheap bike questions are scred off by RM Just a thought

    Definately a good site. I spend quite a bit of time there trying to tranlsate the nuclear physics into something relating to what I understand about suspension. haha
