Hey there Roddo from Sports Adventure again with another quick tip on changing tubeless tyres.
And 3 very important points that I’ve come across when changing tubeless mountain bike tubeless tyres –
1. Make sure you have a good seal around your valve
2. Make sure you have a good seal around the base of the spoke or nipples around the rim of a wheel and
Thirdly when you’ve got the tire on the rim make sure that the bead seals well against the rim.
I usually over inflate my tire to around about 80 lb and I find this pops a couple of times just when the tire expands to the point and seals on the bead against the rim. Double check this with a bucket of soapy water just to make sure you have got no leaks and you are good to go.
Thanks guys have a great day I know I will.
Stay tuned tomorrow for you next quick tip.
