    On my way to Beaverton to pick up a tire. Pretty sure all the shops will be closed by the time I get back. If I could get a mount and balance tonight I would be Sooo Sooo grateful. Im supposed to be heading out to windy ridge in the morning. And of course I would be a paying paying customer, just incase anyone thinks I'm lookin for a freebie. I know its last minute, I've just been very busy with work. Thanks :)

    If you're absolutely desperate to get a tire mounted and balance I have all the hand tools to do the job, but you'd have to drive out to Mt Hood. I'd also have to walk you through how to do it yourself since I'm recovering from having a steel plate in my collarbone.

    You'd learn how to do it yourself though!

    Sounds good, and just to be clear the wheel has to be off the bike

    Lol I can do it.... Probably. I have the tools. I've spooned lots of motocross wheels. I just think a sport bike tire would be aIot more difficult and i just have absutly no desire. I can't balance though. Have no idea how that works. Lol

    actually, i've found street tires are WAY easier to mount than DS/dirt tires. much softer sidewalls.
