Just got a planet x rt 58 which came with FSA Vision Team 30 18mm rim wheels. Thought I'd upgrade the Conti Ultrasport Tyres to Vreidestein Fortezza Tri comp 700 x 23 and what a nightmare! I failed to get the new tyre on and and then couldn't get it off. Once it did finally come off I couldn't get the Ultrasport back on without two pinch flats, wrecked levers (did my best not to use them) and wrecked hands. The whole process took over 5 hours so i don't fancy my chances of fixing a flat by the roadside. Can anyone advise? Is this an awkward wheelset and should I be complaining to PX or is it technique?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
