    Glad you finally got the tired changed! I can never change my bike tires…heck I can’t even put air in them without something going wrong!

    I “know” how to change a tire…but have never been able to get the tire back onto the rim once I have the new tube in. I get stuck with about 6 inches that I can’t muscle back onto the rim myself & always cave in & ask my husband to get it on the rest of the way. I think Courtney’s date night idea is just what I need to get myself over that hurdle!

    Tire change on a bike sounds tough. Much tougher than changing a car tire– that I have MUCH more experience with.

    I totally thought of you last night when I walked out of my house and my upstairs neighbors were doing bike maintenance. At least you have a bike, that makes you leaps and bounds ahead of me πŸ™‚

    I think the one reason I don’t bike very often is because I am totally scared of having to change my tire!

    I can’t believe that tire is such a huge hassle. I would think the same thing you originally did, “If people can do this on the side of the road during a triathlon, I should be able to do it no problem.” At least you’re getting good practice!
