- No tyre levers on an XT rim?
I’ve not used tyre levers in years.
1) get the bead right in the center of the rim all the way around. The well in the center is ized to give enough slack to get the bead over the rim.
2) start opposite the valve and work symetricaly towards it, the valve stops the tyre sitting in the well.
Never found a tyre/rim combination that didn’t work, occasionaly to the supprise of people who were convinced it wasn’t do-able! It’s almost like someone’s designed them to work togther :pPosted 4 years agotimmysSubscriber
I’ve used plastic levers on my XT rims many times without any issues although I did manage to break two of them fitting a continental tubeless, there was no way I was getting it on without the levers!
Plastics levers many times, couple levers broken, rims seen fine, Conti UST tyres – exactly my experience too!Posted 4 years ago
