Sorry for all the recent posts but I'm trying to do everything on my bike myself. Can anyone give me tips for putting a new rear tire on? It is the biggest pain in the *** EVER. I tried the screwdriver thing with no luck, and i dont wanna buy a spoon because they are somewhat expensive. I'm also replacing the stick pinion with a 10 tooth one but I'm trouble getting the pinion off. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
