Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

mounting tires onto velocity aero rim

I just got a new back wheel after stripping out the fixed side of my hub on my '06 bowery. I've replaced it with a fixed/fixed 36h dimension hub laced to a velocity aerohead rim, basically a dimension pre-built through qbp. I could not mount my steel bead vittoria rubino on that thing, and I barely managed to get a michelin lithion on there. So, aside from my whole color scheme being off, I'm thinking I'll be royally ****ed when I flat that back wheel. Am I just an idiot and there's an easy way to put a tire on there?

fyi, I did do a search, just so you know...

get something like a quickstick, basically a lever that can be used to remount tires that you can't get a pinch flat with. Crank bros make a similar product I believe.
