- Tyre slip on rim solutions please
Went for a short ride yesterday, and managed to rip 3 valve stems off on my innertubes, resulting in a walk home. Fairly sure it was due to the tyres slipping on the rims. Any solutions?
The tyres are conti diesel 2.5", talc'd, possibly too small tubes.

ive had the same problem with Gravs, only i went through about 10 tubes before i worked it out.
front wheel flatting on steep descents over and over.
it was when the rubber had worn off on the bead, and the fabric underneath had polished.
bought regular folding contis, rather than the fabricy puncture protection ones since, and not having any probs.
use it as an excuse to get some racekings 😀 (theyre like velcro)Posted 8 years ago
The rims are alex fms dm24 if that means owt?
Will try the hairspray/ roughening the rim and bead & some larger tubes aswell. Would be a pity if the tyres are dead due to "baggy beads" as quite like the grip they had.
If non of the above look forward to a which 2.5" tyre thread 😉
cheers for the suggestions.Posted 8 years ago
