can anyone help.
After 4 years out,i recently bought a new bike,and had mooses fitted in the front and rear by a local dealer,when i picked them up i thought the rear was quite soft they said it was normal,after fiiting and test ride the rear felt all over the place,i raced today and in the second hour the part of the side wall came off and the wire wraped round the wheel and one side of the rim is all dented, how firm should tyre feel,have they fitted the wrong size can any one help

sounds like the fitter fecked up mate.......either scraped the rim giving it a sharp edge, thus wrecking the tyre...or even damaged the tyre during fitting. Either way, I would get your self back there and have it out with them. Although tbh they do feel awful on the road. hth

Sounds like the bead was snapped in the fitting as has already been said.

no doubt about it the dumbass broke the bead, thats why when fitting mousses you use the well in the centre of the wheel on the opposite side to where your using the tyre lever, get back there and tell him it came off in the 1st 2 mins
