I found Sheldon Brown’s video on folding a tire. I tried this with an old 28" x 2" wire bead Big Apple tire and I think it’s too fat. Is it ok to fold it as a figure 8? I need to get it in a box that’s 26" x 26" x 10" along with my wheel and other items so I would like to get it as small as possible. Any one successfully do this? Maybe I should switch to a Marathon which is a folding bead tire?
I search the forum and found some discussion about folding tires for shipping but didn’t see anything about the Big Apple.
Wait … I did it!
This guy has a better video.
