comment How to get the tyre back on to the rim easily?
+1 "Getting the wire bead into the well of the rim.." that's the secret. Since constantly having to change my tires (see: bicycles.stackexchange.com/questions/5312) I've now learnt from experience!

comment Two wheel sets, one bike - best approach?
Currently I'm with the 'changing tyres' solution, it's just that my tyres [Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick] & rims[DT Swiss 5.1D] are a right royal PIA to get on and off..! But I am getting better at it..!

Would it be worth having a chain for each set, I've got those SRAM links so breaking and reconnecting would be a breeze.

Who uses v-brakes? I've got hope hydraulic brakes with DT Swiss rims, I suppose I could go for thinner lighter rims for the road wheels, maybe even larger as I've probably got the clarence.
