Then the kids popped a tube and fubared the tire so I went and got a proper set of spoons and although it was a little tough, the second time around I was able to get the tire off and the new one back on with a new tube with jared (he's 14) in little to no time......it really wasn't that bad.

    They popped the tube again (I'm gonna have to check rim & see what's up). So when I revisit that I'll pay attention to how I do it......not sure what I did but it seemed to work out ok?
    Put in a heavy duty tube and install a new rim strip.

    And make sure you aren't pinching the tube between the rim and the bead of the tire.
