I think it might have something to do with the tires being 23 mm. I just put a 25mm maxis detonator on the rear with my blistered thumbs, it wasn't that hard.

ls01 07-12-20 05:05 PM

Imena try the front.

Awesome! When those little mini-RC cars powered by capacitors became popular my poor old boy loved them - he could chase them around and under things unlike string, and then could knock them over to "kill" them.

This guy disagrees with you.
I might have to give up on you. Sad!

Actually, the last flat I had was at the Air Force Academy road race. I then went all winter long without, then boom, three in a row, plus one. Knock on wood, I think I'm good for another while.

I have found tubeless requires 0 extra effort for a ton of benefit

I don't know a lick about music or music theory, but I can sit down and waste all kinds of time watching Rick break down songs.

If by "giving up" you mean stop posting garbled-sounding '70s music, that's not sad at all.

Batteries didn't seem to take much of a charge, so I only got a little bit of anemic power for maybe 1/3 of my usual flight time :(

Time to try again/

It's cute when the avatar kitty chases them, but she's also really good at swatting them out of the air.

A bit annoying when the little quad is all the way across the house :rolleyes:

2nd detonator went on without tool also. :foo:. What am I missing? Is it the extra room to move the tube into? Beads look about the same width. Although it was easier to get the 2nd bead down into the ditch. Maybe because these are used tires?
Either way I'm going to wait for the new rim strips before I try them on the bike.

Use definitely softens them up.

Can’t believe someone thought “Detonator” was a good name for a pneumatic tire.

I agree. He can give me reason to like a song I previously wasn't that fond of.

The video documentation of this seems to be lacking.
