Thanks for your replies... But what I'm really looking for is some information about what a properly glued on tub feels like! Can you lift it off the rim? Well, obviously you have to be able to in order to change the tyre... But how much effort is needed?
I didn't roughen the rim, by the way, just the base tape, which is the strip laid over the stitching...
Cheers, and keep 'em cooming!
Aha, that base tape. Excuses for the misunderstanding.
There is some real effort necessary to get the tube of the rim.
