I can't change tires for the life of me and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I go through the standard procedure:
- Slightly inflate the tube
- Put the tire halfway on the rim
- Stuff the tube into the tire, being as careful as I can to make sure it's even
- Put the other half of the tire on
However, I'm obviously doing something wrong because every time I try this, on every bike I try it on, the tire is never round, and the ride is always bumpy. I've tried inflating to beyond the recommended pressure to pop it into place, but have never had luck with that technique. Also, since it happens more or less every time I do it, it's obviously something I'm doing wrong.
What should I be looking for here? What can I do to prevent it?
