Help! Have a Diamondback Release with Schwalbe Hans Dampf tires on Blanchard rims. Couldn’t break bead to get tires off as I wanted to convert to tubeless, even after trying tire levers for an hour with hot soapy water as a lubricant. In the end, I had to get a bike shop to do it for me.
Is this a common problem with these rims or tires. This isn’t good. What if you were trailside and needed to work on your tire? Is there a tire that would come off using your hands without having to take rims to dealer?
