    I will be riding from Mexico City to LA where I will meet a friend who will fly in from England in March 24. I will arrive a couple of days earlier and need to change tyres. If anybody knows of. a reasonably priced place to do it that would be great. I know Chaparral Motorsports has good prices but I cringe at paying 100 DLLs to have them fitted.
    Thanks for any help.

    have the tire sent to the shop, may want to do the other basic maintenance once you're there and waiting for the tire swap.

    if you know how to use the tire machine, it will be a lot less. i did 4 set of tires at a total cost of $15.

    I have a Rabaconda and there is sometimes cold beer.

    I can sit in a chair and point at what you forgot to do. :lol3

    that's gonna be a lot of pointing. as it happens, I found a front tire with 4psi today. 3 days ago it was at 25. So i guess i have something to do since we can't go anywhere
