    Tire ChangiIfng - Sturbridge Area

    If I were to spend a little money on a tire changing setup to do in-house, would anybody be interested in having me change a few tires for them?

    Would probably be $10 a tire, off the bike, you dispose...

    Just through it out there to see if there would be any interest before I go spending the money.

    absolutely yes
    too bad you don;t have the set-up now.
    I got 2 sets of tires that need mounting for the race bike.

    Eh.. get the stuff anyway.

    I'm probably going to get set up to do it next time I need tires too. Even if I never help anyone else out it still pays for itself pretty quickly. I've been telling myself I would for a few years, it's about time I actually go through with it.

    I can get 14,000 miles out of a set of tires usually, so I don't change my own that often... only about once a year.

    Damn.. what kind of bike are you riding?

    I thought I was one of the big tire misers... I got 9000 out of my last set and only changed them cause I was sick of them and wanted different tires... but 14000 is impressive.
