I need some help, people! I currently have some 50mm race wheels and over the last year or so I've found it virtually impossible to get the tyre on and off when I've had punctures. To the point that even a bike mechanic struggles to get the tyre off/on. The thought of puncturing in a middle distance race makes me want to vomit in my mouth/cry as I know I may not actually be able to change the tyre. I have the inflatable puncture foam etc but to be honest I'd much rather have better tyres that I can easily get off/on with tyre levers.
Has anyone got advice on good/flexible race tyres? I read that the kevlar beading on folding tyres means that it makes changing tyres harder so maybe I'll go with non-folding tyres but all advice is appreciated.
