Default Tire changing, North Branford

Have a changer and balancer.

$20 per tire with the wheels off the bike.
$50 per tire with the wheels on the bike.

$10 to dispose of used tire (ea.)

I have a lot of tools but if you know that your bike needs specialty tools please let me know.

And I will have a waiver that will need to be signed as well. Iím not a pro by any means and will not be responsible for light scratches. Iím more doing this as a favor because I know all to well what a pain in the ass this can be to get done.

Nice!

What's the price for a tire change without fucking up my rims?

I’m not saying I will scratch a rim. But if I do, I’m not fixing it.

For the sake of being a dick, $300 per wheel if you want me to garrente there won’t be a minor scratch.

Smutty did it and guaranteed no scratches. Also, he was cheaper, closer to where I live, didn't have me fill out a bunch of legal paperwork so you could go all "JHawley" on my bike and not be responsible for it, and I usually got a free beer out of the endeavor too.

0/10 would rather have smutty back.

You picked up Smutty's changer? I almost considered buying it as a spare, but I didn't realize it was a manual one.

Guy is so worried about you scratching a wheel that he shits all over your service offer thread...


This strikes me funny since history dictates that he's just going to trash the whole fucking bike withing a few months of the tire change.

Yeah, for the kid dirt bikes alone I figure itís worth it.

Iíve got the space, why not? Figured Iíd post up here as a way to help out some members who donít get up to the track to see you guys. Oh and because Iím a decent human I actually cleared this with Christian first.

I donít need your money. I am not a business. Iím a guy willing to help out a group of friends. Truly, fuck off.

Yeah, having that in the garage will pay for itself in tire changes in short order, especially when you figure in the convenience.

Seriously. That thing paid for itself the first year I had it.
