Emergency Beader

Postby BJ » Thu Oct 13, 2005 12:57 pm

Ever been caught out by a tyre that won't inflate and don't own a beader?

Well if it is Sunday and all the shops are shut head down to a Bunnings (hardware store) and buy a length of 25mm foam gap filler!

Make sure you use plenty of lube and only pull it gently but it will get you out of trouble. "Necessity - the mother of invention and the father of mototrials"

PS I'll have to put the photo on my webpage 'cause it ain't possible here. :cry: Damn hackers!!!!!!

Touch wood the last few new tubeless tyres ive put on went on using the good old tiedown method, however i'm sure now i've said that the trials gods will spite me and i'll have to go back to using bycycle innertubes
