So far I really like these 023's Barto. I hope they keep impressing me after a few thousand more miles.
I hear ya Bennie. Would you consider buying a cheap (Harbor Freight) tire changer setup? If you can (and have the room for it) you would see it pay for itself after one or two changes. Just a thought.
I tried to go that route recently, but the local HF stores didn't have what I needed in stock, and I didn't want to wait. Luckily DeanR put on to a guy locally that is a full time Firefighter/part time bike mechanic that only charges $20 per tire (full auto machine that doesn't mess up the rims in any way!).
