I just tried to install my first schwalbe marathon XR, and man was it a PITA. I ended up needing to use my plastic tire levers to get the damn thing on, and it even seemed to bend the hell out of it. i'm wondering if anyone has these tires and has any tips and suggestions. i'm not entirely experienced installing and removing tires, but i've never had this kind of trouble before. to be fair, i've never tried to install tires on this bike before (trek 520).
on a side note, i tried filling it up with my brand new topeak road morph, and it seems the PSI meter wasn't working. any idea what i might have been doing wrong there?
