Step 6: We use the over-over technique which might seem counterintuitive at first, but with the sprocket side up, perform the same spooning action and pull the tire over the edge of the rim so that the wheel is completely inside the tire. Stand the wheel up and rotate it until the bead lock is at the bottom nearest the floor. Bounce the wheel to force the rim in to the tire cavity. This should create a gap at the top. Grab the rim and the tire above it and force it off the wheel. This will take a little muscle, but if the rim is deep enough into the tire it will flex and come about halfway off. This will allow you to pull the rim upwards and free of the tire.
