After removing the old tub it took me a good 15mins each time to clear the old glue off the rim.
With the rim cleaned I put fresh tape on,
I then put the new tyre on the rim.
Pump up to a low pressure and wait at least 30mins for the glue/tape to set.
Pump up fully.
Bound to be a quicker way i'm sure.
Boy, will you be sorry you wrote that!Carbon said:Just a phone! Not had a puncture in 12 months of road cycling (admittedly only about 1000 miles), tyre pressure is key, keep those tyres at 110psi plus and you'd be unlucky to pick up a flat..
Obviously you need an obliging partner that doesn't mind picking you up at 08:00 a.m on a Sunday if it all goes pear shaped :-)
