Hmmm...zip ties sound like a good idea! I wish I would have thought about it. Just thinking about my NMF install makes my hands ache!
I decided to get some smaller tires for the NMF tubes, because I thought it would be sloppy with cruiser balloon tires...so I'm using the Bell Kevlar Comfort tires with the NMF up front. It's on well, and is hard as 50psi would be, and I don't feel any sloppyness from the front end.
On another note:
Anyone know where I can get a good deal on a new front rim? I would like to try to go back to the balloon tires, and I don't want to destroy the tire and NMF tube trying to get it off, so I'd rather just buy one more rim.
Please point me to a link if you can help.
