My first flat tire - rear right 30X3 1/2 - fortunately it was sitting in the garage! Looks like just an old tube - it was split not punctured. heated the tire up in the sun and used the garbage bag solution to put the new one on - Worked like a charm. Thanks again to all you most excellent folks for posting so many great tricks of the hobby! They really help us newbees. Having more fun every day!
And I don't know what that one is... but willing to learn....
Here's the garbage bag method for clinchers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6sH8WRl6yI
Pretty darn slick!
When I tried that, I couldn't get all the torn plastic bag remnants out from under the clincher bead !!!
I find that the biggest problem is getting the tire off the rim, not putting it back on.
Peter, did that wheel work out ok? Joe
Tommy - agree - that took 90% of the time.
Steve - yes I had it shred a bit also - but managed to get it out - I used a bit heavier gauge bag - I think that helped... It sure went on EASY!
Look at the time on the video. It took longer to get the bag out than it did to get the tire on. I might try that sometime.
Agreed Tommy - tried it once - I'll do it the old fashioned way !

I guess leaving some bag behind doesn't matter. I tried this technique once and had no luck with it but I bet it would work great with Royce's soft white tires.
