Guess one of your
guys does the rounds with a compressor to keep the pile of tubs inflated then?
We never inject the tires until they are mounted on a bike and ready to ride. You didn't think we inject and then let them lie around in a "pile" ahead of time did ya?
Although I heard all kinds of horror "stories" none of these concerns has proved true for me or anyone else using high end Veloflex, Vittoria or Conti's.
Those so called stories are actual fact. Why else do you keep those tubs inflated? Good looks?
I keep them inflated @80+ so the bond stays strong. Never a problem for me or the 100 others who bought rides and used this method last year.
Clogged vales? Keep the valve at the 12 o'clock position when storing.
Same as #2
What? Keeping the wheel valve @12 is a problem for ya?
Tires should be re-injected after a couple of months ... but by that time, our tires have already performed to their maximum life anyway so that concern is a non issue for us. I thought there might be a balance issue with the liquid...but it never reared its ugly head, so that is why I never mentioned it.
Money no object, extra weight no object. When done throw in the skip.
Surely after a couple of fillings that extra weight must go somewhere? Oh yeah, in the skip...
Extra weight? What a few grams??? I hate flats. What exactly is "skip"? Translate to American English please.
Tufo tape can get expensive compared to a can of Conti glue...so I buy in quantity. It comes to just over 5 bucks USD per tire and they mount perfectly true EVERY time.
Guess you don't use thus stuff or you would have known about it. Don't like tape or sealant?
No, I don't like it. Then again I don't have any
nor cash to throw around either.
Well, neither did I when I started out. And that is why I learned how to mount everything from scratch, repair and sew, maintain and re-latex the sidewalls et al when I was broke. I'm not broke anymore.
