Thanks for the quick reply, and I did watch that video previously. It didn't necessarily help with the issue I am having, which is just with sliding the tire into place. I can't even get it to go down far enough without the spokes hitting the fork, so the tire can't even get to a point to rest on anything. In the site's pics of the bike, I see the fork tapering wider as it goes down, but the one I have doesn't taper either way (not sure if that is evident in the pics I posted). Not sure how else to explain. Would more pics help?
