Hi, I just swapped out my 700x32 cyclocross nobby tires with a pair of Continental Ultrasport 700x28s.
I forgot about the tire rotation direction, so now the front tire will rotate in the wrong direction. What should I do?
1) Do nothing stupid newb, only idiots worry about tire rotation direction. It doesn't matter.
2) Undo the quickrelease, flip the wheel, and put the quickrelease on the other side fork, thus causing the tire to rotate in the correct direction but now the rim is rotating backwards (does this matter?).
3) Remove the tire and reinstall it correctly, like you should have done in the first place.
Sorry, I'm sure this is a stupid thing to worry about but I don't want to come back tomorrow and learn that rim spoke strength is 50% if you're running tires incorrectly, etc..
