    Any recommendations on local shops/mechs/individual riders who have SOLID experience w/ Tubliss installs/repairs? (Local: C'wood, Sedona, or..??) Thx.

    I was told by a mechanic that Dave Lennon at D&K cycles in Cottonwood is an experienced desert racer. He probably knows all about Tubliss. He is also a member of Coconino Trail Riders so he does trails as well.

    Preferably another shop/rider? For one, haven’t had the best experience with that shop. Secondly, would like to actually “learn“ process, and most shops for liability won’t let ya anywhere near the back/process. Realize it’s a longshot, but figured worth asking around. :)

    If you’re looking to learn how, dive right in.
    Tubliss has a very good video for Installation. It’s the one with the tattoed chick. I’m not the best mechanic around (pretty much the opposite) and found it much easier than regular tire changes. I just set up the video on my tablet and followed along. Easy peasy.

    Thanks guys. I can google/youtube the heck out of it, but sorta on the road and prefer to have a stand, torque wrenches, etc.. I'll get it figured out, thanks much :) Go ride!

    That’s fancy lube I just used dish soap water mix works well for this cheap bastard. I’ve only done two rear installs. My first tire a Sedona 907 got a puncture that wouldn’t plug up. Used slime plugs and air still leaked out. I’m gonna give it another chance before I move onto Tubliss Nitiril Mousse.
