You have a very nice bike headed your way. Congrats. I recommend installing the tire (and whatever else is needed) yourself. I would not trust any shop with that bike.

I guess you could just buy an ironman and see for yourself. If you get one at a reasonable price you probably won't loose money on it if it doesn't work for you and you decide to sell it.
