I have a variety of rims and a variety of tyres. Some of those rims are tight and some of the tyres are tight. There is the option of fitting a loose tyre to a small rim but this will take a bit of trial and error to get the right combination.

Worst combination I have is fitting a Kevlar beaded tyre to a Mavic 217 rim. I can do it but I gave an old tyre to a friend and fitted it on his wheel. Unfortunately-the tyre went down at the friends house before the next ride and he broke his new set of tyre levers in trying to get the tyre off the rim.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
