I'm strap it to the rear seat. Or just wear it around your waist. Equally as awesome.

Lol, I had a similar dilemma a while back, only I needed to take both front and rear tire to the shop to be mounted.

I HAD to have a buddy of mine take em in his car and give me a hand with my shinkos lol!
Otherwise I would have looked like the Michelin Man lol

I mounted my own tires...with DUCT TAPE. It was surprisingly simple. Used a floor jack, 2X4 and the joist on my deck to break the bead.

I'd say throw it on the tail, or like what you are planning on - backpack.

It's a bit of an understatement to say your options are limited, haha.

another vote for strapping it ot the back of the bike. i've put a box with a wheel and tire on the back of mine before, just used my bungy net around it and it was fine.
