Tubeless Tyre Beader

Recommended Posts

Anyone found a more robust tyre beader

Dunlop  made them years ago out of rubber which were a lot more robust. 

Just split one tonight rushing to get it done !

I use a bicycle tube that is even less robust than the shop bought things. Got 5 years so far out of this one. My last one even had a few patches on it 😬

20 inch tube ?

Yes. Best at a lowish psi (too low and it won't seal, too high and it pops out too early) with a little soap. Don't come at me if you try it and either get frustrated at it not working or end up ripping the tube. There is more of a knack to it than using a beader. When i started doing it in the 90s i didn't realise beaders existed and put up with the slight inconvenience. Now im virtually as quick as someone else using a beader and too tight to splash out on something that will only save me a few seconds 🤣

Did you lube the beader up? I cover the beader in tyre soap and put extra in the well in which I put the beader in. Makes it slide out really nicely.
