Okay, here's the deal.... all I want to do is ride, but I have difficulty with even the most basic of maintinence. My first ride out, I popped a tube in my front tire. I went to the shop to get it fixed, but instead of paying 35 dollars to have them do it, I spent 20 on some tire irons, figuring it was a good long term investment in myself. However, I just tried to pop the tire off the rim, and all I'm doing is scratching and probably bending my rim, and making zero progress. The youtube videos make it seem so effortless, but I'm going to destroy my bike. I really just want to ride this Saturday, and I need to learn how to do this. SO, I will bring my rim, a tube, my stupid tire irons, and a 6 pack of your choice** to your house on Saturday morning before I go to Yaphank if you can help me change my stupid tube without destroying my wheel! I guess we could also meet at the track on Saturday instead if that's what you're doing anyway, and maybe we can pit together and you can explain to me everything else I'm doing wrong (in a nice way, please). Last time I went to the track, I just sorta parked in a corner and spent the day crashing on the kiddy track while getting lapped by some little girl while her dad took pictures. Anybody down for this? I'm dying to ride this Saturday. **6 pack may cost no more than $15. I get to drink one beer from said 6 pack.
