Morning all,

I had been looking at videos such as this -

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQftmcagddI

And it appears that mounting a tyre taking two or three days, if using the rim tape is it a 5 minute job?

Just mounted 2 tubs using rim tape for the first time!
Cannot believe how simple it was,no mess no miss alignment but I do miss the glue fumes!

I use the 350ml tins of continental tub glue,a pair can be done quite quickly,say 2 hours including drying times,then left to cure for 24 hours. http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/article/w ... res-23929/
Try this method.

Another tub query -

From what i have read, seen and been advised it appears that tub tape is the easiet option (i prefer easy options) but, if i am using used tubs will i have to use glue with them? I currently have a used set of tub rims with old glue on them - i plan to remove it and sand the rims lightly and afix the secong hand tubs to them - what are the pitfalls?

I should add that i am waiting for NOS tub rims which i will probably use tub tape (after sanding lightly) but the used rims might be a different story.

All advice welcome and apologies for hijacking the post,

Richard

It depends on the condition of the surface,if there are no real lumps & bumps,re-activate the glue with a solvent & apply another coat over the top.I would only ever consider using rim tape as a get me home method.
With regard to pre stretching tubs,a mechanic told me that if it was needed the manufacturer would have done it.

More youtube research -

Tub tape - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5UVdBGftFs

Traditional glue - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2y5lgeWBCA

Two questions -
1. Are both these videos good demonstating mounting tubs?
2. What is the downside to tape compared to traditional glue?

Have a good weekend everyone,

Richard

Very easy to mount a tub with the tape .

Put the tape on your rim and mount the tube on the wheels . Insert a pen between the tube and the rim and start peeling the tape , moving the pen along . Takes a few minutes to mount both set .

As i said , only time the tub came undone was in very wet conditions .



that,s the way i use to do it, but used a wooden spoon from my mum,s kitchen draw :oops:
