Little help needed guys and gals, I took my rear wheel in to get a new tyre fitted and I'm having trouble getting it back in. First of all the bloody spacers keep falling out any tips on keeping them in place while putting the rim back?
Secondly it seems like the rim won't go back inside the swingarm as if it is too tight a fit. I know that is not the case but just getting more than a little frustrated and thinking I will let the bike shop do it next time .....
Been there... Done that... It's a pain if you're doing it on your own... Especially if its your first time. I too could have used a third hand (or two) when I reinstalled my rear wheel on my own. Glad you finally got it done... Kudos!
I've also used 2x4s under the wheel to get it closer. Since I change tires often for the track, I found a super useful tool made by one of my fellow riders. It's called TrakJak. It's a bit pricey, but OMG does it make removing/reinstalling wheels by yourself soooo much easier. I only wish I'd bought one sooner!
