Mount and balance specials - April 9, 2010, 01:10 AM

I live near the nats stadium I was wondering where the closest place to get my tires mounted and balanced for a reasonable price. $70-80 is a bullshit rate per tire I remember someone posting about a shop doing a lunch special a while back?

I live in a dorm and have a parking lot so I don't really have legitimate means to remove my tire and have them do it.... So rates to take the bike in.

Maybe I need to pester Whooligan and offer some beer?

It would be 100 bucks for a non tube tire but for tube's it's 150. Plus you should have new tubes put in.

If it's for a DRZ:
3 spoons @ $15
1 bead buddy (or C clamp) @ $15
1 stand @ $50 (or a 5 gal bucket if you are cheap)
1 HF balancing stand @ $50
(all that would fit in a 5gal bucket)
$160 or less and you can mount and balance all the tires you want.
