    No tire levers? I have a Michelin on one of my wheels and I know how hard they are to remove WITH tire levers.

    It looks like you will have to go with plan B which is to buy a new rim, unlace the wheel, and relace your hub and the new rim. :)

    Since you have been usung a Michelin for a while it will be interesting to hear your comments about the Maxxis. I have a Maxxis High Roller on my other wheel and I have been happy with it. I can't really pick a favorite. They both feel different, but I have never pinched either one and both have great grip.

    Thats nothin. I'll get a pic of my old Larsen I just barely got off the rear wheel. It was right bald and in some places it had the brown showing cause there wasnt even rubber left. Still gripped better than a lot of tires as long as you were on rear only, horrible if on both wheels.

    I wasn't talking directly to you Andrew, but regardless there are still ways to get it to focus, like backing up maybe

    I'd take more pictures, but I can't afford film and development these days, so photography has been pushed to the side for the mean time.

    Scanner wise, I have a flatbed/negativ/slide scanner that I have access to, perhaps I'll scan some old slides I have from boulder last summer some day...
