We have brought in a ringer.... @Eldon
Meanwhile Dan is going to race his tractor.
Dan and eldon were talking and eldon talked a whole lotta shit so we convinced him to come out and show us how.
Trouble is, we saw a vid by Megan from Canada so we feel a bit sheepish we can't do it.
Getting the bead down and a long tire iron helped.
Front tire time!
Dan and eldon lubing the mousse. I can barely watch...
I have a pair of 24 inch tire irons from harbor freight. Get a couple those, could be helpful.
Mousse party (stag party?).... 8 inches this... 8 inches that... Tight... Stiff... Beer... More 8 inches... Lube... Oh, yeah, that's right...this really is normal tire install talk.
Front much easier.
Back to drinking!
Did you stop at some point?
They had little tiny tire irons.
Luckily I had the right tools for the job and could come in and show them how to swing.
It does take a slightly different technique than a standard tube but with the right tire irons it's not that bad.
Bouncing @TigerTanker 's rear tire after the install felt really close to a regular tube and didn't appear to have a dead feel at all. The verdict is still out on how ito will feel on a ride but I've got high hopes.
I can't imagine what it would be like to ride without fear of a pinch flat while charging into some nasty rocks or roots. Baja will be an added bonus not worrying about cactus or pinch flats and a huge bonus not carrying tubs, irons, and a pump!
If I was equipping myself from scratch I'd get 6-8 of these: https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/726/19196/Tusk-15"-Curved-Tire-Iron
They'll work as both ramps and good leverage and they're a good bargain.
I have watched those install video's before. They make it look infuriating easy. My install's always look exactly like you guys. You would think I would be dialed in by now, maybe I qualify for a government program for the learning disabled.
