Finally got my act together and mounted my new yellow Continental tires. It’s the first time I’ve put on new tires myself and it’s a real a pain in the ass.
It’s like field fixing two flats, but even worse because the tire, which has been folded over for packaging since it left the factory, is incredibly unwieldy. It keeps wanting to flip around backwards instead of staying in a circle making it tricky to get around the rim. Then add in the cats trying desperately to knock over my bike and it becomes a bit of nightmare. But I got them mounted and they looked* great.
More pics here, here and here.
*Of course, after one day of riding, they are now gray and yellow tires.
