Cheers. So, would you recommend me using a Vittoria as a spare or a Tufo that will fold up nice and small?
I can't fin fit, but I'm sure I've seen a picture of a Tufo that rolled up the same size as an inner tube?
Also...I'm just in from the garage where I've mounted my tyres!!
I 'think' it went ok!!
2 layers on rims and base tape then the wet layer on the tape and on it went...pretty easily.
Probably down to my technique rather than the tyre!
While there seems to be an even bit of base tape showing, I spun the wheel and kept an eye on the tread. Pretty easy to see any changes.
It probably isn't 100% perfect though. Certainly no wild variations at least.
Am I sounding nervous now!!
Tyres pumped up hard and hanging in the garage.
Just some glue on the rims and tyres to clean. White or methylated spirit doesn't seem to be doing the job....maybe I have to wet the glue enough and run harder??
Just buy Goof Off?
Also....since my Vittorias have been stretching in the garage, the sidewalls have taken on a not so nice greyish hue. Just need cleaned?
Can I restore them to all black?
Sorry for all the questions and thanks again.
Looking forward to my first ride!!
