It's been a long time since I've posted! Life's going pretty well.

I installed Shox tires on Spinergy wheels awhile back - probably 8 months ago? For me, a really smart decision that gave me more freedom / less maintenance, at least on that set of wheels.

Shox tires are still great, no maintenance which is awesome and a good reassurance when I was in filthy areas / cities (visiting) and basically in the gutters / on sidewalks that hadn't seen a street sweeper in months.

But... I lost a Spinergy spoke and now need to remove the Shox solid tire (without damaging it, I hope), and get the spoke repaired.

How do I remove the Shox without cutting it off, and (hopefully without!) breaking it?

I have a car tire shop available to me who did the original install of the Shox, but I don't know if they know how to remove it without just sending a sawsall through it. If at all possible, I'd like to reuse the tire once the spoke is repaired, and may need to provide them ideas.

Thank you!
