Hey.

Having a hard time mounting a UST Schwalbe Skinny Jimmy Light 1.9" on a set of Bontrager Tubeless wheels. Even had a hard time mounting the tire--with a tube--on a Mavic 517 to stretch it.

Pretty sure my technique's fine--My 2.1" Spiders go on by hand, no tools. More soapy water doesn't seem to help.

Anyone had similar experiences? Suggestions. Should I just leave it on the standard rim for a longer time to stretch it (I had it on for >24h).

thanks
Gorilla

schwalbe is not compatible

It is well known in all bike shops that schwalbe tire are difficult to mount on your rims. Somehow it is not compatible. You have to change tire that's all.
