    Default Darkside installation

    For those in or near Orange County, CA, I live in Rancho Santa Margarita, 92688.

    Just a reminder that I have a tire machine in my garage, a lift, balancer and tools if you want to go Darkside on your bike. It will cost you a six pack of pale ale to have me supervise while you do most of the work.

    Man, I wish I caught this post before I went darkside like a month ago. This would have been kickass to do myself. I love that stuff. I went to Cycle Rider out here in Ontario area and they are D.Bags big time... the owner whom did my tire was like hell bent against it. I talked him into it, but damn... that is crappy biz.

    Yep, about an hour or two to install a darkside tire in my garage, which includes removing wheel from bike, R&R tires, reinstall, lube splines, inspect brakes, etc. May have to grind the inner fender rails a bit to clear the tire too. Local gas station will take used tires to recycling for $3 each.

    See you at Cooks Corner someday. I live a few miles from it and am there several times a week.
