Msg for Chris & others using tubs

Hi Chris

If you really want to have a go at fitting your Tub take a look here:

http://www.roadcyclinguk.com/bike-reviews/tufo-tubular-tape-fitment/3123.html

Although the tape is different the process is the same, I usually fit the tape leaving the backing paper on, making sure it sits centrally on the rim, smooth down with your thumb nail, then fit the tub, your Conti. comp's aren't directional, this will be very tight, make sure you don't damage the valve!

Once on pump up to at least 150- 160 psi and leave for a few hours if poss.then deflate until you can pull the tub away from the rim, maybe about 20 psi?

Then starting at the valve pull the tub away from the rim and start removing the backing paper, tweaser's are useful here, carry on all the way around taking care not to break the paper, once all removed, check the tub sits centrally, then re-inflate to 150psi and leave over night,again if possible.

Now your OK to go,good luck Tony
