- Pro 2 evo / Crests issue…. getting the bead off the rim

I don’t run tubeless and have no intention of starting now… so this is not the place to tell me i should
Its the same when they are tubeless, but this is what stops them burping 🙂
Just break the ‘connection’, might take a bit of fiddling – and might damage the tube…

Now this is the reverse to the threads we usually see….
My beads are often stuck fast to the rim. What i mean is… i deflate the tyre but it remains stuck and virtually impossble to get off….
Looking at it, the tape/whatever on the inside is very ‘gluey’ and seems to be all over the place. I’m wondering if i should whip off the no-tubes tape that came with them and replace with standard strip ?

Only thing to add is, don’t try and shift them off the bead with a massive push in a single place- do it in small doses, if you loosen it fractionally in a couple of places then go again at teh middle it’ll gome off far easier.
The plus side is that if you flat, it’ll keep the tyre on which helps protect the rim and tube (and you, since Interesting Times follow if the tyre rolls off or the tube comes off and tangles the wheel)Posted 4 years ago
